How Long Do The Steri-Strips Need To Stay On?

Hi all. I had a thyroidectomy on January 25. I remember the surgeon telling me to leave the steri-strips on until they come off. But I don't remember how many days she said that should take. Thanks to my generous double chin, the strips have been progressively loosening and curling at the ends since day two. I've been trimming off the loose ends. It is now day seven and I have very little of the strips left, about a half inch along either side of the incision line. At this point, have they been on long enough that I don't have to worry they are coming off too soon? Thanks.
