Worried about healing, will a revision most likely be needed at this point? (Photo)

I just posted a question a couple days ago regarding wedge method labiaplasty because I got restitched for the third time on day 17 after my surgery. I posted a pic of when it was restitched. It is now 3 days later and it has come undone again, worse than last time, I do not want to get it restitched so from looking at the picture I'm wondering what my healing will be like, could the gap get bigger, and and if a revision will most likely be needed at this point. Thank you.

Multiple stitches

The question is why do you need to be restitched? Too much activity? Too much labia resected and a little tight? Too much swelling? Infection?
As of now it doesnt look too bad. I would treat with topical antibiotic ointment. Let the swelling subside. Keep strenous activity to a minimum and then reasses. Nothing else may need to be done and you can have an excellent result

Will revision be needed

I responded to you several days ago.  You still may be healing fine.  Just be patient as I wouldn't do anything else for at least 5 months.
