I had a tear trough fat transfer done two months ago and the doctor put one stitch under each eye for a few days where he injected me. I still have a big wrinkle/bump and some redness where the stitches were and it looks really bad. He says it will go away, but he said that a month ago and it hasn't. Will it??

Waiting does not hurt
If there is a small scar where the suture is, then the longer you wait, the better it will look. Scar mature and flatten for up to a year after surgery.
I would wait till your 3 month post op check and bring it up again with your doctor.
