Ethibond Suture Removal Due to Allergy, Persistent Pain and Swelling?
I had a Quicklift on 3-28-12 and neck liposuction. I had abnormal pain and swelling with a diagnosis of Ethibond suture allergy. He removed them at 12 weeks, stated my tissue was very friable, the space not closed, and inserted dissolvable sutures. At 4 weeks out, I still have spongey raised skin size of prune at base of both ears down from the size of egg, it gets better with compression from my face garment and ice for only few minutes, worse with any activity and still have burning pain.
