Thank you for your question. At 3 weeks postoperatively, it is probably the best and safest advice to keep the wound clean and allow it to heal on its own as your doctor is suggesting. Placing additional sutures in this thin, traumatized tissue is not a good idea. Once you have completely healed, scar revision may be needed.
