I had silhouette thread lift yesterday. I believe it has gone wrong but doctor says wait. I am worried.

Silhouette Instalift Results
During a Silhouette Instalift all patients have the skin bunched up at the entry point. This is a normal process and expected for all patients. Do not worry; this bunching appearance will improve within five days. You will be presentable for your wedding. Generally patients who undergo Silhouette Instalift can return to normal activities in just a few weeks. Your doctor was correct in advising you to wait. If you do not see an improvement in five day, go ahead and consult your doctor again.
Removing silhouette sutures
I would definitely follow closely with your surgeon before removing them.
The bunching of skin typically does resolve within days to weeks. It is not too early to cut the sutures and release some of the tension/tethering that it may be causing. I would recommend visiting with your surgeon for follow-up.
