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.
Dark spot after tummy tuck
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!

thank you for your question. It is likely you have a stich access or extruding stich from the plication. The best way to know is to go back to your plastic surgeon for evaluation so they can better see what the issue is.
