Infected open wound after breast reduction surgery
These types of superficial wound healing problems are not uncommonly seen after breast reduction surgery. The most important "step" for successful resolution, in my opinion, is close follow-up with your plastic surgeon. He/she will be able to recommend appropriate local wound care, treat any infection present, and/or remove any suture material that potentially will delay healing.
Generally speaking, patients who experience these types of superficial separations go on to heal well, without long-term detraction from the end results.
