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.
