Thank you for your question and photo. It is not typical to have an open area like this picture shows one month after surgery. I recommend that you ask your Plastic Surgeon to examine you in person and rule out infection or serious issues.
All the best

Breast augmentation - do I have an infection?
- I am sorry to tell you that an open wound a month after a breast augmentation is always a concern.
- I strongly suggest that you contact your plastic surgery without delay and arrange to be seen.
Best wishes. Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
