Suture (Stitches) Removal Kit



How to use Suture remover?

  • The wound is cleaned with an antiseptic to remove encrusted blood and loosened scar tissue.
  • Sterile forceps (tongs or pincers) are used to pick up the knot of each suture, and then surgical scissors or a small knife blade is used to cut the suture. Forceps are used to remove the loosened suture and pull the thread from the skin.
  • These relatively painless steps are continued until the sutures have all been removed. You may feel a tug or slight pull as a stitch is removed.
  • The wound is cleansed again.
  • Adhesive strips are often placed over the wound to allow the wound to continue strengthening.
