Complications after breast revision surgery
Breast lift and augmentation - so many problems!
- Your photo strongly suggests that the 'hole' in the right breast is directly over the implant.
- This suggests a chronic infection around the implant which is why it is draining.
- This is a known risk of doing implants and a lift at the same time.
- Your body cannot heal over this hole. .
- It cannot be repaired.
- I agree completely with your plan to have the implants removed and a second lift.
- Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hole under breast
From the pictures it does look as if you have a hole (sinus) on the scar. There are many reasons this can occur and it can be related to a stich.
If the scar is discharging I think it might be best to see your original surgeon to allow then to examine you and dissuss the best way of helping this area heal.

Concerns after breast augmentation/lifting surgery...
Even more concerning might be the "hole" on the right breast; unfortunately, this may be related to the underlying breast implant. If so, you will find that the opening will not heal and that breast implant removal will most likely be necessary. I think you may be correct: given your history and situation, you may be best off undergoing breast implant removal along with revisionary mastopexy surgery for now.
Follow-up with your plastic surgeon who will be in the best position to advise you more precisely. Best wishes.
