Wound infection & necrosis

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
You appear to have some infection of your skin & wound necrosis (skin death) at the T-junction of your breasts.  If you have implants then this needs to be watched & treated VERY closely because if the implant/s become infected then they will need to be removed.  You should be seeing your plastic surgeon regularly, as they know exactly what they've done, and what lies underneath each part of your wound.  At the very least you need to be on antibiotics & should be having a nurse dress your wounds.  Take care

Early postoperative healing in breast reconstruction

The wound edges are not well vascularized and there is some wound edge necrosis present. Recommend an evaluation by you PS to ensure adequate coverage of the implant and local wound care to achieve healing.Best, Dr. Yegiyants

greetings,  you are within the healing period with sutures visible and incisons that haven't healed yet.  you need to be following up closely with your physician to make sure you heal appropriately.

Seems there are some vascular issues ands wound healing one as seen in the photos? But why are you not receiving in person postop care? And it appears as NOT a reconstruction but a cosmetic full lift with implants? Please explain. Was the surgery out of country?
