What is this scab on incision site? (photo)

5 weeks post op, my Incisions healed fine but I have noticed this small scab that's appeared it's not sore or anything, any idea what it could be should I be worried?

This could be a spitting suture which is common and not usually problematic. Ask your Plastic Surgeon to advise you.

Based on your photo you have provided an appointment with your surgeon would be needed in order to examine the area in person. With the photo here it is hard to see what is going on.
