How Long After Eyelid Surgery Should Stitches Be Removed?
My doctor is removing mine 13 days after surgery. It's been 9 days and my eyelids are getting really sore & tight feeling. Everything I read says they should be removed after 5-7 days. But her office said she always does around 10 days. But she's on vacation that's why I have to wait longer. Is that okay?
Most sutures are removed 5 to 7 days after eyelid surgery.
