Is my underarm redness normal post breast aug?
I agree that your scars look quite red and irritated. This may be due to moisture of the ointments and peroxide and allowing the area to stay dry may improve this. 9 days is very early and is likely that her scars will improve significantly. However if after 2-3 weeks the scars are irritated, raised, and read discussed the possibility of IPL and 1549 ablative fractional erbium laser treatments which can be started at 3-4 weeks .

Thanks for sharing the photos. It looks to be the early signs of hypertrophic scarring. I suggest you speak with your plastic surgeon on how best to manage your scar. Best, Dr. ALDO
Thanks for your inquiry and picture. I suggest you call your doctor to discuss any wound/scar management questions. I know you have an appointment in a few days, but if you are concerned please call to discuss sooner and best of luck.

I appreciate your question.
Since there has been a change in your post op course, please contact your surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!
