This can take anywhere from a number of days to a number of months. Why does it vary so much? Different factors need to be considered when calculating how long the stitches will remain.

The first thing to take into account is the type of surgical procedure and where on/in the body this is.

Dissolvable stitches come in different types of material. Some dissolve quicker than others.

Size of the incision and amount of stitches. The larger the area and the more stitches there are usually indicates it will take longer to heal and dissolve.

Everybody is different. Your healing timeframe will differ from the next person. This is the final thing to consider.
