Post-Operative Breast Lift Healing
#Hypertrophic or #keloid scars can be a problem. The worst are usually under the breast with an #AnchorLift or inverted “T”. These can be treated like all thickened scars with re-excision, laser, kenalog/5-FU injections, creams, silicone strips and other methods to reduce and improve healing.
If any of these do not help, then a good idea would be to look for a local surgeon who would schedule a consultation to look at the area in person and confirm what the absolute best option to assist in healing might be. Good luck.
I have an area by my incision that drains and doesn't heal.

- Please do not care for this yourself or rely on your regular doctor.
- You need to be seen by a surgeon -
- It is likely the problem is either a small infection or a reaction to a suture that needs to be removed.
- You need surgical care -
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Wound issues post breast lift
It appears that you have a small amount of skin loss with some granulation tissue present. You should see your Plastic Surgeon for evaluation. Bactroban (Mupirocin) is a prescription antiobiotic ointment which is much stronger than neosprin or bacitracin. Some surgeons use silvadene as well.
The wounds commonly heal very well over time.
Best of luck.
