A removal is necessary due to the risk of tissue reactivity, suture granuloma formation, and the possibility of the suture migrating through the epidermis. Obviously, a precise suture technique can prevent potential problems in removing the suture.

What happens if pieces of stitches aren’t removed?

When the stitches remain in the skin for too long, it can result in additional scarring. Non-absorbable sutures can also be used for internal wounds which need to heal for an extended amount of time. Depending on the material used for the sutures, non-absorbable sutures may be permanent or slowly deteriorate.

Do buried sutures need to be removed?

Suture- removal surgery is necessary to treat suture-related complications of buried-suture double-eyelid blepharoplasty.

How do you remove a single suture?

Using the clean tweezers, grasp the stiches and gently pull up on each knot. Slip the tip of the scissors into the loop, and snip the stitch. Gently pull on the thread to slip the suture out through the skin. A slight pressure may be felt during the removal, but it should not result in pain.

What happens if part of a suture is left in?

If left in too long, your skin may grow around and over the stitches. Then a doctor would need to dig out the stitches, which sounds horrible. That can lead to infections, which, again, not good.

What is a buried suture?

Absorbable buried sutures are used as part of a layered closure in wounds under moderate-to-high tension. Buried sutures provide support to the wound and reduce tension on the wound edges, allowing better epidermal approximation of the wound.

When should suture retention be removed?

As a guide, on the face, sutures should be removed in 5-7 days; on the neck, 7 days; on the scalp, 10 days; on the trunk and upper extremities, 10-14 days; and on the lower extremities, 14-21 days.

Will stitches eventually dissolve?

The time it takes for dissolvable or absorbable stitches to disappear can vary. Most types should start to dissolve or fall out within a week or two, although it may be a few weeks before they disappear completely. Some may last for several months.

What is the small skin incision method for suturing?

The small skin incision method was indicated if the number of buried threads was small or at the patient’s request. Discussions with the patient and skin findings such as a stab-incisional depressive scar, visible knots of the buried suture, or suture nodules were helpful to locate the buried sutures.

How do you remove sutures from blepharoplasty?

Surgical Methods for Suture Removal Suture removal is the only treatment that can resolve suture-related complications of buried-suture double-eyelid blepharoplasty. Three surgical methods for suture removal were performed under local anesthesia. A surgical loupe was used for magnification.

Which sutures are used for Intradermal skin closure?

Polypropylene suture, a reverse cutting needle, and 2 polypropylene attachment clips (Securex; B. Braun Aesculap AG & Co KG, Tuttlingen, Germany) may also be used for intradermal skin closure.

Is the buried continuous intradermal closure more technically demanding than percutaneous suture?

However, the buried continuous intradermal closure is presumably more technically demanding and time consuming than the traditional percutaneous suture techniques (1–3).
