I am 6 weeks PO from LBL, spiral thigh lift, fat grafting to buttock, mini tummy tuck. Groin incisions that opened 3 weeks post op and am doing wet to dry dressing changes BID. One opening I noticed a blue thread poking out. It hasn't totally closed yet but that blue thread has been covered with new skin. Back of thigh has become light red with stinging, peeling and discomfort that comes and goes with swelling and movement. Could this be spitting stitch trying to surface?
Back of Thigh Red, Stinging, Some Peeling. Could It Be Spitting Stitches?
