The T-point of any incision is very fragile and it is very common for there to be areas of delayed healing at this location. I suggests that you consult with your surgeon regarding these areas. If they feel there is evidence of infection they may start you on antibiotics. Usually, however, these areas heal up quickly with local care such as ointment and gauze. Each surgeon has their own techniques of treating these areas.
