Deep indentation under my left breast just below my incision. Will this need to be fixed?
Thank you for sharing your question and photograph. It appears that this indentation is from the suture technique used to repair your incision and should improve once the suture dissolves. Allow your surgeon an opportunity to recommend the best treatment option and offer reassurance that this will improve. Hope this helps.
The deep indentation is probably from sutures. This will likely improve with time. best of luck.....

Thank you for your question. The indentation is from deep absorbable suture, which eventually absorbed and smoothens it out. Please talk to your PS during your visit

As others have stated the indentation that you see in your incision is caused by a deep suture which will dissolve with time. In my experience the weight of the breast implant and the natural healing process should smooth this indentation out but it can take 3-4 months. Of course discuss with your plastic surgeon.
Appears that may be a deep suture that your PS placed. Since you are only 10 days out, just let your body heal. With time, the swelling will go down and the implants will drop some and the "dent" should relax. I advise my patients to wait a good 4-6 months to see their final shape and if you still aren't happy at that point, best to have a candid discussion with your PS. Good luck!
Whe a plastic surgeon is closing an incision , she uses a number of deep and superficial sutures. The deep sutures can take anywhere from a few months to almosta year to dissolve. The job of the deep stitches is to hold the deep tissues together and to take the tension off the incision line so it heals as a fine line. The deep sutures can sometimes result in a dimple in the skin. This almost always disappear when the sutures dissolve.
