Flaking skin and opening

Hello, the junction of the scars under the breasts is often the slowest area to heal.  However, it is not possible to determine if this is just a superficial wound or a deeper sinus bases on a picture alone.  Best to contact your surgeon if you are concerned.

Incision issue

It is not uncommon for an area at the bottom of the incision to have some delayed healing.  Best of luck.
