Hi I fell and cut my forehead as per picture. I received 13 stitches and was advised to have them removed after 7-10 days. They're scheduled to come out after 8 days. Just wondering if you have any idea as to the level of scaring that might occur?

Forehead scars heal well. To optimize your final scar recommend undergoing Botox therapy to forehead to minimize muscle movement while healing thus avoiding a wide scar. Additionally, wear sun block at all times to avoid hyperpigmentation of the scar. Can also consider sillicone based scar gel such as biocorneuym.Best, Dr. Yegiyants
