Chin Implant stitches still there, will they go away?
Doctor Answers 2
In most cases, internal sutures for chin surgery are resorbable. Sometimes the sutures do not reabsorb and must be removed. It is very important to follow-up with your surgeon because he knows what type of sutures were placed beneath the skin. Some surgeons use non-resorbable sutures to secure the implant. This could be the case for your implant. I prefer to use a bone screw to secure the implant.
