It is unusual to still feel stitches on the skin after so long. They may be dissolvable sutures, which never dissolved. Check in with your plastic surgeon for an exam. If there are dissolvable sutures on the surface, they can trim them away for you.

It is common to have these symptoms. It takes several months until the healing is complete. You should check with your surgeon.
