Breast reduction - what should I do now?

Thank you for asking about your breast reduction.

I am so sorry you are having troubling healing after your breast reduction.
You need to be seen by your plastic surgeon - this is a complicated problem and can't be managed on-line.

Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Should I be worried?

The photos do not really show us much, but your description sounds worrisome. I would suggest you get in to see your surgeon.

Incision issue

Sorry, but the photos are not very helpful. You are best to be seen in person by your surgeon to be properly evaluated.
