Open wound after mastopexy with implant

Thank your for the photos. Did you have drains put in? If so, they might of been placed through that same spot. Drains are taken out several days after surgery. This area of the scar might actually start healing after the drains are taken out, so it is common for the drain site to take a little bit longer to heal then the rest of the scar. In any case you should show this to your PS just to make sure and take the necessary precautions.Best of Luck,

In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling. I recommend you to talk with your plastic surgeon and follow his advices.Kind regards
