Opening incision after tummy tuck
The photo you sent is a common occurence with abdominoplasties. Since there is quite a bit of tissue tension at the incision line, there sometimes tends to be some wound separation, that will heal ultimately.
My incision seems to be opening and has white? This does not seem normal! Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thank you for your question. I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon. They are most familiar with your medical history, details of your surgery, and how you are healing. Although it's not normal for the incision to open, it doesn't necessarily mean that you will have a significant issue. Small areas can heal nicely with wound care.
Congratulations on your recent surgery.
Hi Thank you for your question. Sorry that you are having problems post-op. It appears that your incision is opening up. It's not normal but fixable. Please call your Surgeon ASAP for a follow up appointment. Best of luck to you.
