What shall I do with unhealed wound from tummy tuck surgery? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 3
Sorry you are experiencing issues with your incision. Wound separations are not unheard of with abdominoplasty surgeries as the flaps are closed under tension. Open wounds 4 weeks post-op which are not actively healing are unusual and of concern. The area should be cultured and you should be on some type of local wound care with or wothout antibiotics.
Return to your Plastic surgeon to ask for their advice on the best course of action.
Best of luck.
