Do all the deep support sutures used in a body lift eventually dissolve or do they stay in your body forever?

Sutures in body lift
Thank you for your question. It is better to ask your operating surgeon this question. In my practice we use absorbable sutures and for muscle tightening we use non absorbable. Good luck
I agree with the previous comments. It is better to ask your surgeon, if permanent sutures were used or absorbable sutures were used in your case.
Body lift eventually dissolve.
We cannot speak for your surgeon, however in our practice the deeper sutures will dissolve as well after a body lift or tummy tuck, unless they are sutures to repair the muscle. Be sure to check with your surgeon.
