Hole in my breast one month post op (Photo)
Doctor Answers 7
See your surgeon
It is not uncommon to have tension and a slight wound breakdown at the confluence of suture lines at 6 oclock on the areola and at the bottom of the breast. You should have close follow-up with your surgeon, as open wounds typically heal, but could lead to infection if the deeper tissue is compromised and this could lead to an implant infection.

- The opening is at the join of the vertical breast lift incision and the areolar incision.
- The photo suggests you have a deep suture that cannot absorb and is rising to the surface.
- See your plastic surgeon - if the suture knot can be found and removed, the opening will heal quickly.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
you need to keep in touch with your surgeon as I am sure he/she has a wound care regimen for that to get it to heal quickly. In general, keep it clean and moist and it will heal quickly. The quicker it heals, the better chance you have at it heal with a nice scar.
