How Long Does It Take a Surgical Incision to Heal?

Answer

Speaking as a medic, surgical incisions can vary greatly in their healing times. Generally, when we make a surgical incision, we try to cut along the lines of skin tension; this ensures there will be minimal need for the body to grow excessive amounts of scar tissue to mend the incision. The length and depth of the incision also have an important effect. If the incision cut through blood vessels or was done in a jagged manner, this will increase the healing time by weeks.
