I had a tummy tuck 6 years ago and I’ve had sutures come out from my skin. Want to know if this is normal or if I need to address this?

I have no idea what you mean by sutures coming out from your skin but I have never heard of anything like that before. I would probably go see my doctor and have him check it out. At least he can give you definitive answers and peace of mind.

Good luck,
