What kind of stitches are these and how should this heal? Peri 10 days post op. (photos)

Concerned about appearance ten days after perineoplasty
It takes a six to eight weeks for the normal swelling to go down after surgery. Sutures are designed to hold tissue together long enough for the body to heal in the right way and then to dissolve. Appearances change very rapidly in the post operative appearance so I wouldn't worry or obsess as long as you are feeling better each day. See your surgeon.
