Healing and Wound care
My favourite type of wound closure - a fine suture is interwoven into the skin edges so that stitch marks are avoided; scar at 2 weeks
Wound at 2 weeks and just before suture is pulled out
Surgical tape applied over the wound; left in place for 7 - 14 days
Splash proof dressings put over the surgical tape; left in place for 7-14 days
I am grateful to all patients who have kindly agreed for their pictures to be used here.
