Breast implants,
Hi Doc,
I had breast augmentation done a year ago and the incision was done under the breasts. The one breast healed perfectly but the other incision is still a bit sore and even thought the skin healed it doesn’ t feel like the flesh underneath is closed yet. Is it possible? Is there anything I can do or take to help with the healing?

Hallo Tash
It could be a delayed healing - let your surgeon or a dermatologist have a look as sometimes they need to cut out the "bad tissue" and re-stitch the cut.
