Do I have an infection around my areola incision, and if so how bad will the scarring be? (Photos)

Peri areolar infection?
Please see your doctor.
Thanks for your question. Based on your photos I don't see any signs of infection, although it does look like you have a small wound dehiscence. This is a situation where some of the sutures have released early and the incision has opened up. My recommendation would be to follow-up with your plastic surgeon as any exposed sutures will need to be removed in order to prevent an infection. You may also need to have the incision re-sutured. Good luck and all the best.
