Stitches in Scar After Surgery
Typically sutures that are to dissolve on their own, are not seen and ones that are to be removed are seen. They should have all been removed at the suture removal visit. If they are still in the wound after all this time, they are providing no function and could cause more problems such as suture granulomas or worsening scar. I suggest having them reevaluated and removed. Best, Dr. Emer.
