This is an unfortunate problem. Packing the wound with gauze twice per day is one way to treat this problem. However, depending on how much dead tissue there is and how deep it is, it may need to be cut out or debrided. The risk here is that the surrounding tissue gets infected and subsequently infects the implant. If that happens, you will likely need to remove the implant. I hope this helps, good luck!
Thanks for your question and photos. I am sorry this is happening to you. I do agree with your treatments that you describe. The tissue UNDER your breast is under the most tension after your surgery. It is not uncommon for there to be some wound healing issues there. Cleaning and packing your wound 2x/day will improve your healing tremendously. Stay in close contact with your surgeon so he or she and help you through this. All the best...
