Stitches in the Chin - for How Long? (photo)
Hello, My daughter (4 1/2), split her chin open five days ago (to the bone). She has internal and external stitches in and we are concerned with potential track marks on her face. We are scheduled to have them removed in two days (so seven days today), but due to the dr. not being available tomorrow. Since there is a lot of tension on the wound given that it is on the chin, should we be concerned at all with the timing or push to have them removed today or tomorrow? Photo enclosed. thanks!
