Tummy Tuck NOT Yet Completely Healed
Not sure about the tape because I don't use it in my practice. I would check with your surgeon.

How strong is my tummy tuck incision 3.5 weeks after surgery
Irritation or significant trauma can pull apart a healing would, but the closer to 6 weeks, the harder it is.
The small openings in your incision suggest suture reactions. Have your surgeon check these and ask him about the tape on your incisions. In the post-operative period, your best advice is from your surgeon.
