Bubble on breast augmentation scar, 8 weeks post-op. What can I do
I think to see your surgeon soon so they can help you. It appears thee incision is not healing well and you need more surgery to avoid having to remove the implants

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!

Thank you for sharing your question and photograph. Due to the appearance of your breast I would advocate seeing your surgeon sooner than later. It appears that you have an infection and possible fluid collection that needs to be evaluated and treated. Best wishes.

You need to see your plastic surgeon as soon as possible to discuss wound healing concerns of that one breast.
Bubble on the scar
You really need to see your surgeon as soon as you can. It looks to me like your wound is about to open up and I suspect you have a seroma (fluid build up) around your implant.
"bubble" on scar
You need to see your surgeon to make sure you are not developing a wound infection following the wound "closure".
Need further evaluation
Difficult to see on the photos but I am still concerned about the delay in wound healing. I would call your surgeon and be seen urgently. Infection in light of breast implants must be taken very seriously.

Thank you for question and photos. You should call your Plastic Surgeon and inform him/her of your concerns. Without a physical exam it is difficult to determine what is going on. With the pain and redness I'd be concerned of a possible infection. It could also be the way you are healing; possibly a thicker scar called a keloid scar. In the case of a Keloid scar, many practices offer scar therapy, I use Embrace Scar Therapy in my practice. Please be sure you follow up with your PS and follow all post op instructions. Best of luck to you!
