Is my mole removal site healing properly? (photos)

I had two moles removed about a week ago in the crease/fold of my left breast. I wash it twice today and change the bandage and ointment twice a day as well. I have noticed now that the cauterized scab is falling off that there is a shiny white tissue left in its place. I am wondering if this is normal or if there is a possibility of infection. There is no bleeding no pus and just slight tenderness to the site the only thing that I think is abnormal is the shiny white tissue. Is this normal?

Please start silicone based scar gels with growth factors and speak to your physician if you are concerned.  Best, Dr. Emer.
