Will my incision continue to close up after the stitches have been removed?
I suspect the incision will continue to do well going forward. Sometimes we can see a bit of "raw" tissue at the time of suture removal. Most certainly contact and follow up with your surgeon to discuss and check your concerns, but I suspect you will do well. Best wishes.

The healing does continue after the sutures are removed. You should contact the surgeon if there are concerns with the healing
Thanks for your question! Although your incision is still healing, there should not be any open areas. I would follow up with your surgeon for an examination. Best of luck!
