How much pain you feel during suture removal? Any tips one can use to minimize pain during/before the removal procedure?
Hair transplant patients with highly sensitive skin can purchase LMX Topical Anesthetic Cream and apply it over the suture line 30-45 minutes prior to the suture removal. I prefer that the area be cleaned prior to application so as to facilitate absorption into the local skin region. This cream will numb the superficial skin and make the suture removal process more comfortable.
