Open wound at the medial epicantholasty site
A small open wound at the medial epicanthoplasty incision site should heal well on its own if you keep the wound clean. It should close in a week or two. I would advise you to follow your doctor's instructions.
Open Wound after Blepharoplasty and Medial Canthoplasty
Thank you for putting your picture which shows that you probably had a limited medial epicanthoplasty along with upper eyelid blepharoplasty. I am surprised that your sutures were removed on 4th day following the surgery and one can still see the providine/anti-septic used prior to the operation in the area. The wound may be open but is not obvious from the picture you have provided. The area also does not look infected and less likely will get infected since face is heavily vascularized. I am sure you may still have some ophthalmic antibiotic ointment which you can continue to use once/twice daily for the next one week.
Tightness and itching in the area is normal because of the healing process.
