I've developed a blister under my breast? (Photos)

The skin feels very thin, is it safe to pop a hole with a needle to drain it?

Blister after surgery

A blister can be used as a biologic dressing.  I would advise you not popping it.  Please follow up with your plastic surgeon to be examined in-person.

Good luck with your recovery.

Do not attempt to pop and drain this on your own. Please follow up with your surgeon so that he/she can do it in a more sterile manner to avoid infection.

Blister on incision

Hi, this isn't too uncommon to develop a blister along the incision, but you should see your doctor so that he/she can inspect it and if it needs to be managed, he/she can do it for you.
