I had a thigh and buttocks liposuction 2 weeks ago and I did not get my stitches out. They are tied in a knot on the surface of the skin, and i fear of poor scaring. Last time i had this done, the doctor took the stitches out, even though he said they were dissolveable. but now nothing. Do you think i should take the stitches out or leave them? If i do not take them out, do you think the scaring will be worse than taking them out?

You should be discussing this with your PS. In my patients, I would remove them by now but I cannot comment on your specific case. Why haven't you just gone back to your PS?
