Bumps after Silhouette Threads
Thank you for your question and sharing your experience. It sounds like from your description that permanent sutures were used and subsequently removed to help with the bumps under the skin. I would expect the bumps to persist after they were removed for a certain period (perhaps 1-3 months) as the bumps were likely due to an inflammatory response to the sutures. Due to the longevity of how long you felt them, if they persist beyond this period of time, then the bumps are more likely scar tissue. I would continue to see your surgeon who placed your sutures so we can determine if other treatments such as steroids, massage, etc... can help soften the bumps.
Consult with Your Surgeon
Thank you for your question. It is common to experience some bumps after surgery. However if you’re still experiencing bumps after a year, I suggest going back to your provider for a full in person evaluation. Always seek treatment from a board-certified dermatologist.
