It is important to have these checked out by your plastic surgeon and make sure there is no exposure of the breast implants. The most usual point where scars struggle to heal is at the junction of the vertical and horizontal lines or along the vertical line.

Separation of the skin can occur and if this is the case it may be that you will need regular dressings for a number of weeks. These wounds do heal but it is important to liase with your plastic surgeon during this time to make sure there is no underlying reason why the wounds are not healing.
