8 Days Post Op Mommy Makeover with Black Skin Around Center of Inscion. Miami, FL

I'm 40 years old and wanted a breast reduction......

I'm 40 years old and wanted a breast reduction... I was on my 2nd set after 2 kids they were 600cc so of course I needed a lift if I was going smaller so I had my kids by csection and figured I might as well do my tummy and some lipo as well ... I'm 5'9 139l s so I'm not over weight at all ...anyways I'm 8 days post op and my scar has a little black area around the center ... Is this normal ?

I think I'm trying to do to much ... I get tired very easy .... Black Skin area has not changed ???? has a bit of Oder not to bad but a little ... Dr still says its normal ... Took my drain out yesterday thank goodness ???? thank you everyone who has replied I have lived on RS since all of this and all of your stories help me so much ...

Black skin is now a hole :( I actually do have an infection so PS called me in an antibiotic and said warm compresses on area .... Now that the black area is an open hole PS says it should heal from the inside out ???????????????????????????????? I'm following all his instructions and he's very fast at getting back with me (I'm an out of town patient) ... Please if anyone else has had this happen to them (the black hole) any advice or encouragement would be greatly appreciated ?? I will post photos soon to this update ...

3 weeks 3 days post op

Feeling ok and back to normal however the wound is still so big ... I'm still following his directions clean , dry , cover ... I'm going to try and see him this next week ... I had a complete thyroidectomy in April just 4 weeks before my mommy makeover... So I'm seeing my general surgeon for a follow up on Wednesday and will have him look at it as well ... Overall my scar looks good ... It's just this BIG ugly hole !!! On 1 of my questions to the Drs one mentioned some red light laser treatments @ 800 per session... I'd totally try if it worked... Has anyone else heard of this or tried it ? I also under my right boob have a spot that looks infected...
