5 Weeks Post Op Tummy Tuck and Incision Has Opened About 1/4 of an Inch. What Do I Do?
I'm 5 wks. post op tummy tuck and my scar does not hurt and seems to be healing well. I removed my surgical tape over the scar 2 days ago since it was already coming off on it's own. Today after removing my silicone scar sheets I saw a tiny tear in my incision less than half of an inch in length. Should I put tape to protect it? Should I be careful when showering? Should I put ointment? What should I do to make it heal back together? I don't want the tear to lengthen & I'm worried about bacteria.
