Are the Deeper Sutures Always Removed After Tummy Tuck?
I had a complete Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) on May 1, 2009, and I am healing fairly well. However, the deeper sutures that have the ends protruding at each end of the incision, with a loop and knot in place, were cut just below the knot by the surgeon at about 2 and half weeks post-op; the suture itself was not removed. I am now having some local irritation and swelling at the left end of the incision, and I can actually see a small loop of what resembles "fishing line" protruding up through the skin. Following abdominoplasty are the deeper sutures always removed?
