How long it takes to remove scars of 5 stitches ?

I got 5 stitches from middle of top lip half way to nose last Sunday and I m getting married in 8 weeks, will the scar look bad by then and is there any way I can make it heal quicker? the stitches are coming out on Monday, is that too soon?

Hi, the stiches can be removed on Sunday itself. As stiches on the face can be removed after 5 days. The scar mark will take some time to go. But you can conceal it by applying make up. Wish you a happy married life.
