Could this be a Stitch Abscess or something else? I'm 20 days post op; mastopexy, 300cc silicone implants
This is a surgical wound dehiscence. You MUST be seen in person... I would drive to see my surgeon for care...
It looks like you have some delayed wound healing, and you need to follow wound care instructions from your surgeon. Good luck.
Thank you for your pictures. You have one break down around your areola. You need to have local wound care to promote healing. Your plastic surgeon can describe this to you over the phone since you live quite a ways away. You need to allow this to heal. The scar will be wider and you may need a scar revision in the future.

It appears that the skin edges were starting to separate on the earliest posted photo (day 15) and this has progressed. Seeing your surgeon is essential. Choice of antibiotics is sensible, though cultures might have been useful.
All the best
Skin loss around areola after breast lift
Thank you for your question. Based on your photograph there is skin loss in the periareolar area.
This needs to be properly managed and you need wound care management advice.
I strongly urge you to make the trip back to see your plastic surgeon. Proper wound care instructions could reduce the time that it will take you to heal and ultimately improve your result.
Traveling 200 miles to improve your result is just as important as traveling 200 miles to have the initial surgery.
