Breast Reduction Sutures Too Tight to Remove?
Had BR was told to have sutures removed 14-21 days afterwards. They are non absorbable continuous, basically told to get one end with knot cut and pull from other. The longer ones did have visable loop also half way along to make it easier. Have had a few nurses have a go now and so tight could not even get under the knot. I have finally manage to wrench the knot out and cut a couple but unable to pull from other end. If left what damage can be done? How can they be removed?
