I recently had a TT, I have been healing very well, but in the beginning of this week I noticed 2 small knots under my scar, one on the left and one on the right, I have been massaging them regularly (dont know if that helps) and they seem to be going away, when I touch the one on the right it does not hurt but it seems there is a line leading away from it that hurts a little (used to feel that pain in the first 6 weeks of healing. Sorry I dont have a pic, its not visible just by looking.

Inflammatory Nodules May Develop with Absorbable Sutures Following Tummy Tuck
Its not unusual for abdominoplasty incisions to be closed with a series of absorbable sutures. These sutures typically resorb in 3-6 months following surgery. During this process inflammatory nodules can occasionally develop which are sometimes tender.
These nodules typically respond to massage and often dissolve with the passage of time. It’s important to discuss this issue with your surgeon. Your surgeon should be able to address this problem and reassure you.
Scars will be pink, firm and bumpy for 3-4 months. In most cases they will start to fade, soften and flatten out over the next 3-6 months. If the scar starts to raise up like a keloid try topical silicone. I hope this info helps.
Palpable bumps in incisions commonly are sutures
It is very common that patients have palpable bumps under their incisions following tummy tucks. Most commonly, what the patients are feeling is the suture material (knots) under the skin. Even absorbable sutures take three months to absorb...so be patient.
