Yes, but only if: They come out easily. If you meet resistance then leave them alone for another few days. If they are really bothering you than have the doctor who did the surgery reevaluate you.

Not recommended: If your stitches come out earlier than planned, you should let your dentist or surgeon know so they can give you an advice for your situation.
