How long are the stitches supposed to stay in after liposuction? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 4
Thanks for the question and for the photos.
Sutures generally dissolve within the first 2 weeks following surgery. I remove all sutures within 5-8 days.
Contact your surgeon about removing any still present after 2 1/2 weeks. You may also just cut the knots with a small clean scissors and the rest of the suture will fall out shortly thereafter on their own.
Best of luck.
