Removing Medical staples in head

I have some ****l, medical staples in my head closing a small cut.

Its been a week now and I'm meant to go to the hospital to have them out, but it just seems like a big effort to go all the way to the hospital and pay just to have them removed.

Is it a bad idea to try and remove them myself, or to get a friend to do it?

Hmm, does seem like they use a special tool to do it:

And if I wait a bit longer and leave them in, can I get them all out at once?

They use a contraption that's basically like a staple remover. My advice is just go back to the doctor. You don't want to risk further injury do you?

I agree with this guy, home surgery is never good.

If you care about a possible scar, infection or so your head will heal correctly then go to the doctor.

You have to use actual medical staples removers. And not it's not a good idea, because your physician has to look to make sure the wound is closed. And you dont just pluck them off. You have to remove the middle ones first, then move outward as long as the wounds edges have approximated (closed).

Don't do it.
