You May Feel Pain When You Remove The Stitches?
A week ago I finished my prenectomy, and tomorrow I plan to remove the stitches, do you think it will hurt when you remove the stitches? Thank you🙏🏻
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Frenectomy is a simple surgical procedure to remove the presence of the frenulum. The frenulum is a small fold of tissue that restricts the movement of certain organs in the body. Throughout the body, the frenulum is found in several places such as in the brain, in the digestive tract, precisely in the small intestine, on the upper and lower lips, under the tongue, at the tip of the penis in men and around the clitoris in women.
The purpose of doing this varies depending on the location, but in general it is usually done because a person feels disturbed by the shortness of the frenulum he has.
Regarding your question, not limited to frenectomy, any surgery that uses external sutures is painless when the sutures are removed. The function of the sutures is to help reattach the two separate tissues during the surgery. After a certain amount of time, the network had fused and the threads that were left had no effect. All your doctor will do is cut the thread and pull it. This process is painless because it is the threads, not your tissue, that you cut. Interestingly it also won't hurt because no new wounds are made. So, hopefully it answers your question.
