I had a closure and mine was gooey for a week or so. After that it took a few weeks to close up. A couple of the sutures came to the surface and caused some discomfort, but my healing from the closure wasn't too terrible, and didn't take THAT long. I had some pictures at 4 or 5 weeks where it looked quite closed, but I've heard of other members having slower progress.
