Is this normal? (photos)

This is m surgery from removing my sweat glands. I did got in previously with pulled stitches. Is it normal for them to have the incision stretch in with to be about an inch wide?

I would speak with your surgeon followed by application of Plato's Scar Serum once the skin heals over.
