Abdominal incision/scar indent adhesion?
 
I just had scar revision for a tethered abdominal scar. However, i think it tethered again. It seems to be stuck to the muscle. It won't move from its spot, looks indented, and the skin flaps over it. Is this normal? Or will the incision "pop" out? Please help.. What was your abdominal scar like? Did it move around freely over the underlying muscle?:confused::(

My brother had a similar situation after his spleen was removed and he had that area cut open. The problem was he couldn't do a scar revision because there wasn't enough skin there to work with. In order to fix that they need to cut out the skin and then re-stitch it shut. The problem is that with most slim people its hard because they don't have enough extra skin for the surgeon to work with.
