Incision opened , will it be wider than the rest of scar?

Incision opened , will it be wider than the rest of scar?

Postby chrissy75 » Sat Jul 27, 2013 12:17 pm

I recently had a breast lift (lollipop) with implants 280 cc. I think my surgeon did a great job. One week Post-op I went to his office for my first check up, but he was out of town.

His assistant removed the steri strips, I really wanted them to stay on longer, but she insisted on removing them. Doing so, 1 inch of the vertical incision just below the nipple opened up.

She put on a new strip and told me to remove it after a few days. Now it looks closed and has a scab on it, but the egdes of the skin are not as close together as the rest of the incision.

The rest of the incision is a perfect thin line, but I’m worried about the scarring underneath the scab, will it be wider than the rest of the scar?

Has anyone experienced this?

How is it looking now? My scars have several spots which look the same and I am also concerned.
