Normal for "Bruises" to Appear Exactly Where Stitches Were Removed?
I went through an upper Blepharoplasty and an Epicanthoplasty on 8-28-10. It has been 2 weeks and 3 days. I had a partial incision where 3 dissolvable stitches were done on each eye. I recently got the stitches removed 2 weeks after the surgery and now there are "bruises" EXACTLY where the stitches were. Since I had 3 stitches (inner, middle, outer) on each eye, the "bruises" are like 3 lines.
I have read that the lines (better known as) suture track marks appear because the stitches were kept in too long... Is there any way of getting rid of the "bruised" suture track
marks? Is it permanent? If getting rid of the track lines is possible, how do I get rid of them?
Also, after the epicanthoplasty
the area where the doctor performed the procedure is red and have a "bumpy" texture (both sides). When will that disappear?
