Had BA with nipple revision in 12/3/13, I have 500 cc hp unders. Should I remove steri strips? (photo)

My question is, my Dr wanted me to remove the steri strips at day ten. I removed the left side and i feel it looks amazing. But my right side had more done to it and im scared to death to remove the strips.. I also have extreme inching and some swelling on the right. I feel the strips are making my skin red and swollen. Do you think i should just leave them alone. Or just do it and remove them. Will my skin close over the strips? Please advice...

Go return to see your surgeon if so unsure that removal of the steri-strips is to difficult for you.. I would expect my patient to see me with any issue.//

Steristrips

If you trusted your surgeon to do your operation, I would recommend that you trust his post op instructions. He is the one to call if you have questions.

All the best.  Dr G
