I think my doctor left something inside me. Black mesh of some sort? (Photos)

Based on the pictures posted, you have in one picture (3) skin necrosis and loss.
The other pictures most probably show exposed implant. This requires urgent surgery.
Remove the implants, if there is necrotic tissue debride and treat wound . You need to see your plastic surgeon today and surgery tomorrow
Thank you for your question. What you are seeing is the underlying implant. It is not an emergency but should be managed in a timely fashion. Contact your PS and discuss your options with them. Good luck.
Based on your photographs, you have exposure of your implant which should be addressed quickly. I recommend you see your surgeon to determine a plan of action. Best wishes.
