Is my incision infected?
Thank you for sharing your question and photograph. I agree with you that it appears that a stitch along the lower portion of your incision has become irritated and developed a localized area of inflammation. This will likely lead to your body spitting the stitch and need for removal by your plastic surgeon. In the meantime keep the area clean and covered by gauze.
Is my incision infected
Thanks for your question and photos. Red, warm, and more painful are all reasons to be evaluated. Best of luck.
It appears that you are reacting to the sutures inferiorly, but there is likely a superficial infection surrounding it. You may "spit" the suture or have part of it open at the bottom. I would F/U with your PS frequently to be sure that it doesnt get worse. Keep it clean and wash it gently, apply some antibacterial ointment to help in the interim.
Is my incision infected
Thank you for your question. It may be suture or early infection. Personal evaluation needed. Please call your PS and discuss with this .
It is hard to say without an in person exam. Looks like maybe just a stitch that is coming to the surface. It would be best for you to just follow up with you surgeon just to be on the safe side.
Could be a spitting suture
From the photograph, it does appear that there is some redness and elevation of the bottom part of your vertical scar. This may be due to irritation from a spitting suture. I would recommend you go back to see your plastic surgeon for advice and treatment.
May be mild infection
Thank you for the question and photo. It's hard to know for certain but there may be a mild infection at the bottom of your breast lift incision. To make sure it is best to see your plastic surgeon. Antibiotics may be prescribed and monitoring may be advised. If it doesn't get better or gets worse the bottom of the incision may be opened up to allow the fluid to come out. This would happen in the office under local anesthesia.
Good luck with the remainder of your healing.
All the best,

Start with antibiotic ointment and guaze to cover the area.
