Raised incisions 10 days post BA
Suture line is raised
However, this raised area will go down very much over time as the scars mature.
Likely to not be a problem.

It is my guess from your photos that the raised incisions are just from deep sutures that are illing the tissue together and making it rise up. Once they dissolve your incision should flatten out nicely, so don't worry. If you have scabbing on the incisions the ointment is a good idea, but if they are healed it may give you a rash or irritation if you are using it on intact skin. It may be more appropriate for you to start scar care soon. Run this all past your surgeon, and best of luck!

Incisions are often closed this way in order to take tension off at the surface and they will soften and flatten over the first few weeks. I recommend that you discuss incision care with your Plastic Surgeon if you have any concerns about healing.
