Cauterization of a gun wound

Hi, ya'll! I was hoping someone could help me. I'm writing a one-shot about a character being shot (don't laugh) in the ass; right buttock, as a matter of fact. The character can't go to the ER, so a friend helps. They are both trained soldiers, so what I really want to know is: what's the process of getting the bullet out? After the bullet is taken out, do they need to cauterize the wound? Are stitches necessary??

Thank you!
