Talking to doctor Pham Duy Linh, Department of Plastic and Plastic Surgery, Duc Giang General Hospital (Hanoi), the girl said that the surgery was over a month ago, costing 20 million VND. The operation took place in a room with many people coming in and out, the surgeon did not have standard clothes.
After surgery, she was not instructed to change the dressing or clean the surgical area. A few weeks passed, she found that the incision was slow to heal, there was fluid discharge, and when she went to the spa, she was treated with stitches 3 times. However, the incision still drained white and blue pus, there was a cracking phenomenon, so she went to Duc Giang General Hospital.
On receiving the patient, the doctor noticed that the suture edge was not standard, the suture technique was not good, so it caused deviations on the skin, diagnosing the patient with infection, skin necrosis in the chest area, slow wound healing, and fluid discharge. If not treated in time, a long-term infected wound will form a bad scar.
The patient was treated with antibiotics, improving the infection. When the incision is no longer bleeding, the patient will be operated on to repair the scar and correct the displaced suture areas.
” A breast repair surgery that is delayed, enlarged… according to the correct technique, indication, and standard technique, it only takes 10-12 days to remove the sutures and heal. Particularly for young female patients. This takes more than 1.5 months to make the chest and repair “, Doctor Linh told VietNamNet . Currently, the patient continues to be monitored by the doctor of Duc Giang General Hospital, next week can remove the sutures.

Before this 22-year-old girl, the hospital also handled a case of infection during breast reduction surgery at a cosmetic facility. The 23-year-old girl suffered from breast enlargement, the surgery cost was about 5 million VND.
After surgery, the patient has a discharge of pus, the incision is torn, cracked, making the incision open and infected. The cosmetic facility also treated the patient, stitched the incision a few times, but the infection worsened.

On the 5th day, the wound progressed well, all pus and discharge stopped. The girl had to be treated in the hospital for more than two weeks, taking longer than usual infections.
