Self rib nose - does my rib incision look normal? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 2
Your rib incision in the photos looks normal. You should follow-up with someone in person to really evaluate it, because photos do not tell all.

I strongly suggest you discuss these concerns with the doc that takes your sutures out. 2 weeks is a long time to keep the stitches in place - after removal, they may want to keep a close eye on the wound as you may need some attention to it based on your history. The best thing that you can personally do is obtain some silicone sheets and gel. Once your sutures are removed and the incision cleaned, start using the products as described by your doc taking the sutures out. Best of luck.
