Scars following body contouring
The scar process is not entirely controllable, even for plastic surgeons. And this is especially true if you had wound breakdown or delayed healing. It seems you have a nice result, other than the hypertrophic scarring. It would be very possible to revise this scar after some period of maturation and contraction (usually 6-12 months after full healing). If the sutures were thought to problematic, it would be helpful to avoid those in the future and use other suture materials. If your plastic surgeon is no longer available, I would seek out advice from another board-certified plastic surgeon about revision. It would also be tremendously helpful to obtain a copy of the operative report from your prior plastic surgery office so that the new plastic surgeon is aware of the suture material that was an issue previously.
