Steps to Aid with Closure
I would expect that wound to be closed within three weeks. What will be necessary is that you keep it clean, do numerous dressing changes per day to keep it debrided, make sure your protein intake is high and you are taking multivitamins, be sure you are not experiencing any second-hand smoke.
I hope this has been helpful.

The #wound from your #TummyTuck #incision appears to be clean, which is great. It should close up on its own within a few weeks.
If it ever causes you concern, please contact your #BoardCertified #PlasticSurgeon to have it checked out in person.
