    ''The time it takes for dissolvable or absorbable stitches to disappear can vary. Most types should start to dissolve or fall out within a week or two, although it may be a few weeks before they disappear completely. Some may last for several months.'' https://www.nhs.uk/common-health-questions/acciden... Mine refused to dissolve so a nurse removed them for me.

    About 2 weeks, depending on their location.
