Should dissolvable stitches from a tummy tuck be left alone?

I had a TT a month ago and, now, a few of my dissolvable stitches started to come out. I'm not sure if I should remove them or not. Can I just cut the exposed part? It's starting to get a bit annoying. They didn't cause any inflammation, everything looks all right, expect the poking part.

It is not unusual for that to happen.  But whenever there is an issue that you don't expect, it is best to ask your surgeon before doing anything.  Just call his/her office and they may just tell you to cut the exposed part, but if they don't feel like that is a good idea, then they may have you come in for a look.  Hope that helps.

I'd have your PS do it, but yeah, should be safe by now.
