When to remove steri strips on my face?

When to remove steri strips on my face?

I had a mole removed on my face by a plastic surgeon (knife cut out). Size is about 5mm.

1. He put 3-4 stitches on my face with steri strips on. After 7-8 days, I went back to the surgeon and he removed the steri strips and removed the stitches. He said it was perfect.

2. He put the steri strips back on and told me that I don't have to go back and see him. I forgot to ask him how long should i keep these steri strips on. 5 more days?

Re: When to remove steri strips on my face?

I'd suggest you call the doc's office and they should be able to tell you.

Much will depend on where exactly your mole was and how much that part of your face moves...which might determine how much scarring you could have.

Are you putting any antibiotic on it? That might help and then just cover it with a small bandaid.

It's all a matter of perspective!
