Crease Scar Healing
Typically, the eyelid scar appears slightly corrugated and dimpled immediately after suture removal, a distortion that disappears within several days. Even during early healing, the scar is difficult for others to visualize because it lies buried in the depths of the crease.
The redness fades gradually to pink over several months, to a white harilline by six months, to a flesh tone by one year, and to nearly invisible after several years.
