Q&A: What should I do about a scar from a breast reduction 10 years ago that is opening?

Ask A Doctor Question: 

after 10 years, scar from breast reduction seems to be opening. Its located under breast, and just appeared. I do farm work, and am active with horse care. Could I have torn something? No pain. Any Ideas?

Scars can stretch out with time.  Without seeing what the scars look like, it is very difficult to give you my opinion.  I would recommend that you see a plastic surgeon and have him or her evaluate your scarring.  Best wishes.
