4.5wks Post Op and Steristrips Just Came off Revealing a Sore Spot with a Suture Sticking Out? (photo)

Thanks for your photo. Most likely, one of the sutures worked its way out to the skin. Your plastic surgeon can remove the suture. Once the suture is removed and a local wound care is implemented, the area should heal soon. Best wishes.
It appears that you have a dissolvable suture that has formed a small abscess or infection and worked its way to the skin surface. Your plastic surgeon can fix this easily in the office by removing the problematic suture.
I wish you a safe recovery and fantastic result.
