I gave birth 4 weeks ago. I had a 1st degree tear in the side of my labia. Would it be ok to remove the stitch now. Its really bugging me.
Can I Remove my Dissolvable Stitch?

Don't remove it on your own
You should discuss this with your OBS/Gyne. They can tell you whether they think it's ok to take any sutures out.
Removing sutures after labiaplasty
Suture removal should be timed right in order to prevent dehiscence of the wound. You would save yourself a lot of trouble if you visited your surgeon and had him evaluate your labiaplasty incision prior to suture removal. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles
