Just had breast reduction on March 26, 2010. Incisions along breast crease opened. I am using a hydrogel and 0.9% saline wet to dry dressing. Just wondering if this is a normal occurrence. Also, have discomfort in nipple area, comes and goes, not continuous. How long does it take for wounds to close and is this customary. The surgeon took off approximately 5lbs. Is silvidene ok as dressing?
