7WPO not healing!

Any chance this will heal eventually? Or will a revison surgery be necessary for it to close? What are your thoughts? Thanks.

  • It will heal, but healing can be slower in certain areas/situations. Things you can do to optimize healing: good nutrition, local wound care (bacitracin, neosporin, or vaseline are all fine), avoid nicotine products. Once it heals the scar will be wider there and then go through changes over the next year. You may end up wanting a scar revision there, which could be done easily in the office with just numbing. 

     

    I would be honored to see you at my office in St. Louis, MO!
