Octoplasty Surgery 12 Days Ago, Dissovable Stiches Not Dissolving.

Otoplasty stitches not dissolving after 12 days
otoplasty stitches not dissolving after 12 days. These do eventually get dissolved. But 12 days is on the longer period of time and I would remove them. Sometimes if the stitches stay in too long you can get more issues with healing and your appearance of your incision can be an issue.
