Is this normal for your breast to open? It's penny size at anchor? No pain, just stressed!
This i the most common postop issue with breast lift/redutions! Good wound can and tome allows the area to heal by secondary intention. If the implant is exposed than that becomes a serious issue. Best to be seen weekly by your chosen operative surgeon...

It is the commonest complication. Wounds tend to heal better under moist conditions. This is well demostrated in burns. So put some cream with antibiotic and cover it with a film (like a tatto). On the other hand you have an implant inside so the risk of infection is incremented. This is the reason why not to leave it alone without coverage. The key is to keep the wound extremely clean, wash it with neutral soap 4 times a day (or more). Remove the film, clean, and then put cream and a new piece of film back on.This way, the wound will close in 2 / 3 weeks with minimal scar in the future.
Good luck from Bueno Aires!Andrés
