I am Po 18 days. Nipples look great after breast augmentation plus nipple lift, but today while I was bio oiling, my finger ran over a piece of sharp, clear nylon sticking out of the right boob areola. It's only 1mm long. I tried to pull it out with tweezers but it hurt and blood came out. What should I do????
Should I pull out the nylon which is sticking out of my nipple? (Photos)

Pulling Out Your Own Sutures is Never a Good Idea

Should I pull out the nylon which is sticking out of my nipple?
It is unlikely to be NYLON ( which does not dissolve). It is more likely a clear suture that dissolves over 3 months. Pulling it out is not advisable. I recommend you cut the suture that is sticking out ( the bit you felt).
