If I have an anchor suture left in from tummy tuck 2 years ago, can it cause excessive scar tissue and should it be removed?

Spasms and sutures
Muscle spasm starting more than a year after tummy tuck
It sounds as though the spasm began more than a year after your tummy tuck.
It isn't likely to be from the surgery or the sutures - but you should see your plastic surgeon to be examined.
You should also see your regular doctor. It sounds as though you need tests to find the cause of the spasm - whether or not it is from the tummy tuck - if massage, PT and chiropractic treatment aren't helping.
Hope you find this answer helpful. Have a great day!
