Three weeks post #tummytuck is very early! Your #scar will take up to a year to heal completely and will continue to flatten out and resolve in color over that time.
If you have concerns, please contact your #BoardCertified #PlasticSurgeon.
Tummy tuck healing
We all hope for smooth uncomplicated healing with our tummy tucks but sometimes areas of greater tension can lead to delays in healing. I don't believe this is infected either but this is only based on what you are telling me and these small pictures. Your best guide on this journey is your plastic surgeon that did your procedure. Often times early on, wounds can look frightening but with time and care become very acceptable scars. I would discuss your concerns with your surgeon and find out how you can best care for your incision. I wish you a quick recovery and best of luck
