Suture Removal and How to Remove Stitches at Home
While the Aesthetic Plastic Surgical Institute remains open for follow-up care and other treatments during the Coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis, it is understandable that many patients would like to avoid venturing out at this time. For some individuals who currently have stitches in place from a surgical procedure, it may be possible to remove them at home while being guided by an experienced member of our team. Below, you will find a link to a video featuring Dr. Christopher Bates, who offers a quick step-by-step suture removal tutorial on behalf of our board-certified plastic surgeon, Daniel C. Mills, MD.
It is critically important to call our office at (949) 499-2800 before you begin the process of removing your sutures to make sure it is the right time for this step of the recovery period. We will be happy to walk you through the suture removal process and provide a detailed guide for what to do next.
Please view our suture removal video below, and remember to call our practice before removing any sutures!
