Wound healing

At this point you have a wound breakdown, but it is very clean. You need to maintain good wound care that your surgeons directs. I have my patients clean and reapply antibiotic ointment 3 times per day. The wound will heal by itself. After the scar matures you may need a small scar revision. Except for the wound breakdown you have a nice result. Nice breast shape and narrow scars. Once all is healed I think you will do well. Good luck.
