I have just had extensive liposuction and a breast lift . My breast lift incision wound is not healing. Should I be worried?

Incision skin loss and healing problem after breast lift
This is probably a combination of the tension of this closure and possibly splitting of deep sutures which were placed.
Usually these areas heal and it sounds like your surgeon is handling this properly.
I do not think that what is happening with your breast lift incisions is necessarily going to happen with your tummy tuck as they are very 2 different operations in 2 different areas of the body and this type of wound healing problem is much less common after tummy tuck.
