Skin sutures generally are removed from five to eight days after application, with sutures on the neck or face generally being removed slightly sooner. Absorbable sutures lose enough strength in that period that they can often be removed without cutting, but non-absorbable stitches will need to be cut out.
Although the stitch cutters are simple to use, it is essential that all staff are both familiar and confident in using them.
