Not right: the way this surgery done in the united state does not include stitches so having stitches will mean something is not right you need to see the surgeon so they can remove the sutures and the wound drained freely as fa as alcohol concern you are 20 even in the USA is not legal for 20 years old i do not know about Iran last no alcohhol should mixed with pain medicne good luck
