Redness caused by sun? (photos)

Redness after sun exposure to breast lift
I have found that areas elevated during a surgery can sometimes behave differently than unoperated skin when exposed to heat or sun. I believe this is because the nerves supply to the skin is altered and the skin may respond independently to heat causing more redness. I see this most commonly in tummy tucks in areas where the skin has been elevated. It usually resolves over time but can take a while. On the off chance there could be something else going on ( like infection) I suggest you at least check in with your PS.
