Down side of travel
Many physicians are hesitant to take care of the complications of another surgeon. It is a little unfair to the second plastic surgeon and to you. You already paid the first surgeon for the surgery and the postoperative care. Now you will have to pay the second surgeon for the care you already deserve. So the answer is that you may have a hard time finding a surgeon willing to take on the postoperative care of another physician.To address your particular issue, I would be unlikely to "restitch" that area of breakdown. I would treat the area with appropriate dressings and allow it to heal. Scar revision could be considered later but often the scar does well despite its appearance today. Good luck. Call plastic surgeons in your area, explain your predicament and request their assistance.
