Is this normal? I am in week 4 of post op of breast implant removal, and lift. (photos)

I am a type 1 diabetic, and healing takes longer for me. My incisions broke open, I have holes underneath the breasts, and hard lumps on the sides of my breasts. Is this part of the healing process?

It is likely that your diabetes contributed to some of your wound healing issues. At this point. you need to stay in close contact with your surgeo to get the appropriate wound care.
