1 Month Post-tummy Tuck - Incision Filled with Yellow/white Tissue

I had a tummy tuck 1 mth ago, i have noticed an area in my incision that is filled with soft yellow/white tissue that is moves when i clean it and i can see a suture. My ps says it is fine. It seems to be getting worse the area is widening and looks like it is getting deeper. Will this go away by itself?

Open wound in incision after tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)

In all likelihood the wound will close with proper wound care. Removal of the suture may be beneficial but I would leave this to the discretion of the surgeon.
