Split stitch in my mouth. Do I need to get it fixed?
2 years ago
I split my lip and had some stitches, I accidentally cut one of the ones in my mouth. Is this serious, do I need to get it fixed or am I just over thinking this. (The rest is still stitched up)

Most likely, split skin and tissue on such a dynamic area of the face will require suture repair. Seek the advice of a local surgeon.
