I recommend that you arrange a follow up with your surgeon and have him remove the dressing and inspect the wound to reassure you about how things are healing.

Bleeding after surgery

Without an exam I can not tell you what is going on. It is best for you to see your surgeon.  Good luck.

I am not really understanding what you are describing. I am a little baffled about the possible use of plaster for breast support.

Best approach would be a call into your surgeon, who knows you, knows what was done, knows the dressing. You should not do anything you are uncomfortable with. Make an appointment.

All the best.
