My surgeon told me there are dissolvable sutures under the skin holding muscle and other tissue that take 5-6 weeks to dissolve. I was worried my scars would rip open so he was reassuring. Maybe that's what you're feeling?

How long does scar still feel tight after db mx

I had my surgery 4 weeks ago now the stitches on the right came out after 2 weeks but the area still feels tight like it it still,has stitches. I have had to have some more on right side due to fluid draining so I expect this to feel tight! I have tissue expanders but they haven't been inflated yet due to my ongoing issues!
