My incision has opened after a blepharoplasty. What should I do?
I'm sorry to hear this happened to you. The good news is that it will likely heal on its own with minimal scarring. You should have an open line of communication with your surgeon about any concerns or issues that occur following your procedure. I give my patients my cell phone number routinely for this reason. Good luck with the rest of your recovery -- I'm sure you'll be fine!
No question that you should see your Doctor, who may want to start you on antibiotics. This may heal acceptably, but only time will tell.
Do see you surgeon on Monday.
Keep bland ointment on the raw areas. This is a wound dehiscence. Although it looks ugly, it will heal on its own without the need for more surgery. Only rarely do these need surgical management.
Let your doctor know as they will want to see you. They can be left open at this point as they will close on their own with minimal to no scarring.
there is no problem.Use a baby shampoo to wash your hair and just keep the incisions clean.It will heal on it's own.
