Post Op Breast Reduction-steri Strips Have All Fallen off? (photo)
Hi, I am about 10 days post op from a breast reduction and within the first week all of my post surgical tape/steri strips have fallen off. There doesn't seem to be a problem with any of the area, i.e., there is no wound splitting/signs of infection, etc. However, with looking on this site, it seems most people have their steri strips on for 2 weeks or even longer. I have steri strips and paper tape at home, is this something that I should be reapplying? I have all dissolvable sutures, fyi :)
