There are people who all heal quickly, whether they are postoperative sutures, or just a cut or a wound, and there are those who have this process dragged on for months.
Fresh postoperative wounds must be closed with the help of suturing, and the edges of the wound are completely joined, which prevents the formation of cavities. In the future, the treatment of uninfected postoperative sutures with antiseptics (this can be iodine, alcohol, ordinary manganese, etc.), the dressings are changed until the time that the wound-retaining seams can be removed. All dressings should be held in specially equipped rooms - dressings, which are in any surgical department of the hospital or polyclinic.

The sutures are removed, depending on the location of the wound and the course of the healing process itself, usually on the 9th - 12th day. The very process of removing joints is painless for the patient and does not require anesthesia. Postoperative sutures are treated immediately before they are removed. Surely you already know how to remove stitches . After removing the sutures, the wound can no longer be covered with bandages and, in a couple of days, you can already take a shower.
