Breast Reduction 4 weeks ago, sutures sticking out of wound, should I go see my surgeon? (photos)
Doctor Answers 2
I would see your PS so that he/she can evaluate the wound. Although it does sound like you are spitting out stitches which is not unusual you actually look in danger of the wounds opening.
4 weeks post op, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
4 weeks after Breast Reduction, it's not time enough to express a valid opinion of results.
On the other hand, generally to avoid the normal p.o. swelling, I recommend to limit the arms movement for two weeks.
Also it's not advisable to carry weight and take the antiinflamatory painkillers drugs.
Finally, I recommend you always use a therapeutic bra.
