Will the stitches leave a scar and will the mustache be growing on it? (Photo)

Hello and thank you for your question-
The laceration will leave a scar- there's no way around that. The scar will be minimized if it was closed by an experienced surgeon who focuses of soft tissue handling and minimizing scarring.
- the suture there should not stay in for longer than 1 week or more scarring will result
hope this helps and God Bless!
