Breast Wound Healing: After a breast reduction there can be many things that can affect the healing. Sometimes small pockets of blood accumulate and if they are just undr the scar this will make the wound or scar appear if there is a bloob blister. Usually this will break, the fluid will come out and it will heal in just fine. It is certainly nothing to worry about but if you are concerned call your surgeon.
