This picture was taken of a scar on a lady’s abdomen that I saw today.
She had a mole removed ten years previously and stitched up by her general practitioner.
The scar has faded well and it’s now a very right silvery color but unfortunately she’s been left with small dots on the either side of the incision
These dots occurs by in growth of the top layers of the skin epidermis into the deeper layers dermis.
If the stitches are left in too long the [epidermis] grows down the stitch tracks when it is embedded in the [dermis] it will permanently marks like this.
The plastic surgeons recommend removing stitches from the face and approximately five days and from the body before ten days. If the stitches removed before this time they are very unlikely to develop dots on either side of them as in this case.
