Wound healing after Mastectomy
I am very sorry you are having to go through this. Based on your photos, the skin is very compromised and may not survive. It is difficult to guide you further other than to say that local wound care with antibiotic ointment or comparable is the best thing to do right now. You may need further surgery once any area of loss declares itself. You might need your implant removed (just so you are emotionally prepared). I recommend seeing your plastic surgeon weekly during this difficult time. Best wishes.
