I'm sorry to hear about your situation. It's great the thighs are healing well, but on the elbow you have had a wound separation. This will require additional treatments, but it looks clean and perhaps one option is for your plastic surgeon to sew it up in a few weeks for faster healing. Best wishes, DR. ALDO :)
1 month post op, Arm lift w/ Lipo & Thigh lift. I feel my legs are doing good but not my arms. Will my elbow ever heal? (photo)

It is common to have that area open up a little.The options would include Silver based dressings, such as Aquacel AG, or a
small VAC therapy system. The surgeon could also do a delayed primary closure,
meaning take you to the OR and close the wound with sutures. Your scars look
thick so you should consider a fractional CO2 with a topical steroid for
"laser assisted drug delivery".
