Is this a stitch abscess?
Current concerns after tummy tuck surgery…
Your photograph and description are certainly consistent with an "stitch abscess" situation; these problems tend to be self-limited and should resolve on their own. Followup with your plastic surgeon for more accurate evaluation, advice and meaningful reassurance. Best wishes.
