Would the cut on my face scar even more if the stitches are removed 9 days after? Should I ask my doctor to remove it earlier?

Plato's Scar Serum for a surgical wound
I would speak to your surgeon about the appropriate time for suture removal given the tension parameters on your wound. Follow with Plato's Scar Serum once th skin heals over.
Removal of Stitches/Timing?/Avoid Scarring--Consult Your Dr--Silicone Gels for wound healing/Lasers for scarring
I would consult your Dr. as to timing if you're concerned. For wound healing, I recommend wound healing at this time including silicone based scar gels with growth factors. Any scarring could be improved with lasers, microneedling/PRP and fillers. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
