Some of your incision is pleated because of the difference between the upper and lower incisions. As for the wound healing issues you need to follow closely with your surgeon to get the appropriate instructions and care.

Thank you for your question and photos. Continue close follow up with your surgeon and follow his recommendations for wound care. The closure will smooth out in the next few weeks. Discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon. Best wishes!
Two weeks is too early to judge final results
Thanks for your breast reduction question. Simply put, if you’re
concerned about suturing/sewing, it’s best to discuss this with your surgeon.
Two weeks is far too early to judge the final look of your breasts after
surgery. A good benchmark is 8 to 12 weeks, and there’s a good chance you’ll
see things smooth out and correct themselves as the tissues heal. If you think
you have an infection, you should contact your surgeon as soon as possible and
make sure you're following the post-op recovery instructions.
Report wound healing issues after breast reduction to your plastic surgeon.
I would have concerns about your incision as well. You need to report this to your own surgeon.A wound management regimen will be started.
Breast reduction post op. Some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
To avoid postoperative swelling and pain after performing a Breast Reduction procedure, I recommend to my patients, to limit the arms movement for two weeks, also it's not advisable to carry weight.
Finally, I recommend you always use a therapeutic bra.
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
2 weeks post surgery things look nothing like the final result
it is too early for you to judge the results. It looks like your surgeon has attempted to keep your scar short and so the tissue is bunched up. This will smooth out, give it at least 3 months if not more to become a smooth contour.
Concerns about right breast after reduction
Thank you for your pictures. Your right breast has some pleating but more importantly you have some breakdown of your incision. You need to go back to your plastic surgeon for evaluation and treatment of this area

I am sorry to hear about the difficulties you have experienced. It will be especially important that you follow your plastic surgeon will frequent basis. He/she will be in the best position to make accurate assessments, give you good advice, and provide you with meaningful reassurance.
Generally speaking, areas of "irregularities" along the incision lines tend to smoothen out with time. You will likely be much happier with the appearance of your breasts several months from now.
