How Common is a Large (2inches Long, 1.5 Inches Wide, 1/2 Inch Deep) Abdominoplasty Dehiscence ?
I had abdominoplasty with liposuction of the flanks about 6 weeks ago. An existing scar from a previous surgery (35 yrs ago) caused the surgical scar to pop open 1 week after surgery. It slowly increased in size until the third week, it then grew over night. There is no odor nor pus. My PS took two cultures and prescribed antibiotics. I am now having to pack the wound 3-4 times daily. I am unable to find alot of info on this. My PS is optimistic but seems puzzled. Has anyone else seen this?
