Open wound after brachioplasty
I am so sorry you are having to go through this. I strongly recommend seeing your PS frequently and continuing with debridments as they become necessary. Unfortunately your auto-immune disease and the required medications you have to take do affect your risk of post-operative wound problems. The good news is this will heal. It will take time though. Things that you can do to help include keeping the wound clean and changing the dressings as recommended. Also important to eat healthy high protein diet and take multivitamins. It is not uncommon for a wound like this to look a little worse and appear to get larger before it gets better. Best of luck. Hang in there.
