Dear Ms. Smith,
Thank you for your pictures. Unfortunately, wounds like this can occur. This will heal and typically does not leave an indentation. It will leave a widened scar. The scar can be addressed 6-12 months after complete healing. Continue to follow up with your doctor. Best wishes.
Unfortunately, sometimes incisions do not heal quickly. Occasionally internal dissolvable sutures do not dissolve and spit out causing the incision to separate. This can be treated by local wound care. This does not leave a depressed scar once healed can can take several weeks to heal.Other times there is swelling that causes the incision to separate and similar wound care is needed. Finally there can be skin loss from poor blood supply , causing an open area. The treatment for all is often local wound care.
As far as asymmetry with one sitting higher this could be due to swelling and the delayed wound healing.
I can reassure you that despite the slow healing the final scars fade well and most women are very happy with their reduction. I understand this is difficult for you but stay positive.
Wish you quick healing.
