Yes, these sutures needed to come out 2 weeks ago.
Please insist that the surgeon remove the sutures. While there are ectropion surgeries that rely on the suture to form a scar that contributes to the long term effect of the surgery. However, current methods do this internally rather than externally to avoid complications that can occur when sutures are left in the skin for a long time. Call your surgeon tomorrow and have these sutures removed.
