These instructions are for patients who have had excision with sutures (stitches) performed at Spot Check Clinic.
If you suspect a problem, we are happy to review your wound at any time after your procedure for any reason.
How to reduce scarring
After the stitches are removed, there's still a lot you can do to reduce the amount of scarring.
- Avoid stretching the area for another few weeks
- Apply silicone gel daily
- Massage the wound after the surface if the skin has healed
