Wound closure after breast augmentation
Thanks for posting your question. I am happy to try and help you. It is important to remember that a board certified plastic surgeon will be your best resource when it comes to an accurate assessment of your situation, and concerns.
Having said that, different surgeons will use different techniques to close the wounds. There is no one way to do it. There is no one right way to do it either. I am sure if you contacted your PS office they will be happy to answer this with the BEST answer.
I hope you found this helpful. As always, ask your PS first about any questions. Have a great day.
Poor healing post op
12 days post op
In order to truly assess blood flow to the areola and watch out for infection you need to be seen and examined in person by your Plastic Surgeon.
All the best

Breast lift with implants post op. Some advices:
It's too early to talk about results with only 12 days post op.
In my practice, after performing a Breast lift with implants I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense.
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling.

Early Post op
If you notice things getting worse, please see your PS
If it has always been a little red, you are still very ear;y and this could be normal
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
best of luck!
