Debriding Wound After Tummy Tuck
From your picture, it looks like it is most likely an extruding suture. Contact your operating surgeon for in-person evaluation, removal, and debriding. Best wishes.

Thank you for your question. It may be suture granuloma which is not common. Please go to a PS for evaluation and possible excision or debridement.

It appears from your picture that you could possibly be extruding a suture. However, it is very unusual for a suture to extrude from that area. In fact I've never seen this. In any event, you have a small wound that needs to be debrided, and if there is a suture there it needs to be removed. Please follow up with your surgeon. Best wishes to you!
