Are there stitches that dissolves in the body? I.E. No need for a post surgery to remove the stitches?

Yes!: Some sutures are designed to dissolve as the area heals. Others must be removed. All sutures that are deep in the chest or abdomen, for example, dissolve on their own. The external sutures you get in the emergency room may have to be removed; it's easy and usually painless. Your doctor should tell you what type of after-care you will need. Good luck.
