You will need to keep these sutures moist with an ointment such as Bacitracin until they're removed. At that point you will need to protect the scar from the sun with sunblock and a hat. There are many topical scar gels that will also aid your healing once the sutures are removed. You should also consult with a Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist to determine if you would benefit from scar injections, dermabrasion/ laser resurfacing or scar revision. You can expect this scar to be prominent for several months but after that point, if it's properly treated, the scar should begin to blend in. I hope this information is helpful for you.
