Thanks for the query. The picture is not very clear but I feel there is a stitch which can be seen, This could have been answered better by the doctor who treated you. However a suture mark will be seen post healing and will take its natural course of fading. Fractional CO2 lasers can be done after removal of suture under supervision of a Dermatologist to improve the cometic appearance.
