That area needs some debridement by the surgeon. You can then keep it clean and moist and it will eventually heal. If you don't like the scars 6-12 months after, they can be revised. If you are still having symptoms of infection, you may still need more antibiotics. Make sure you are following up with your doctor regularly.
