Should I continue to clean the open incision under my breast myself or do I need professional care? (Photo)

Caring for Incisions and Scars
Delayed wound healing
Delayed wound healing after breast lift is not uncommon. By keeping the wound clean and moist, you should heal. I don't see signs of infection on the pictures but it is hard to tell with the iodine staining. If you have redness, warmth, swelling and pain, those are signs of infection along with fever. If those are present, you should see a doctor.
