Let’s look more closely at how this prevents scarring. Usually, when a wound occurs, it is sutured. And if the wound heals enough, stitches can be removed. However, these stitches may leave marks. If you do not want to leave as much stitch marks as possible, it is best to remove stitches as soon as possible. On the other hand, removing stitches too late will reduce the chance of spreading the wound, but it will leave lots of marks, and in some cases, the stitch marks may be more noticeable than the scar itself.
Therefore, after a wound is sutured, the stitches should be removed. And this may vary slightly depending on the surgical site and the method of suture. There is a slight difference in each individual patients, the wound is different in the state. So we have to remove the stitches at a suggestive time. Occasionally, the stitch marks will not be visible, but the sutured area may re-open and causing wound again. Or the suture line may open slightly.
