This section is dedicated to questions that don’t easily fit into any other category but that concern facial plastic surgery. For hair restoration, see Dr. Lam’s Hair Transplant Forum. http://www.drsamlamhairforum.com/
In your video about chin implant recovery video, you mention stitches are removed about 7 days after the procedure. I assume this means out-of-town patients should plan to remain in Texas for at least 7 days? Or is there another alternative for patients to leave earlier?
yes, 7 days. i prefer to use non-reactive sutures so i prefer not to use dissolvables. i would really prefer you stay 7 days to have them removed. best, sml
