Nylon Suture Here and There After Facelift on June 19th, 2012. Isn't It Harmful if It Remains over my Life? (photo)
Now 73days after a facelift and brow lift, hair loss directly from scarring was noticed by Dr. Russo (head and face surgeon) in Carle general hospital, two Korean dermatologist, and one Korean cosmetic surgeon. While discussing nose issue, Dr. Russo found "multiple fine nylon sutures" (doctor's note, 8/1/12) and removed. Now in Korea on 8/31/12 for the scar revision, my Korean surgeon, Dr. Hwang removed a 9cm long nylon suture with knots near my left ear. Isn't it harmful if not removed?
