Six weeks: Most dissolvable sutures will dissolve around 6 weeks, by which time your own body's scar tissue will have formed enough that you do not have to worry about tearing which is why you are usually advised not to do heavy lifting for 6 weeks post-op. However, the healing continues for months after as the body remodels scar tissue and softens/fades the scar. It can take 1-2 years. ...Read more

What stitch?: Most incisions are closed subcuticularly (suture under the skin) & these dissolve on their own. Many use skin staples and these are removed from 3-7 days after surgery & some use absorbable staples that dissolve under the skin & work really well (my favorite). If you have a suture exposed, call your surgeon, some do use a permanent suture that pulls through once the skin heals. Better check 1st. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
