Inside stitches - outside stitches question

Hello all my wonderful sisters
I was wondering if many of you have had inside suturing to close the outside. instead of staples or outside suturing.
And if there were any added complications with it.
Thanks

Inside stitches - outside stitches question

I had inside suturing to close the outside, plus steri-strips keep it all nice and smoothly together.

I did have some minor cellulitis of the incision, while still in hospital. Nothing serious that impeded my recovery much. I got some anti-biotics in my IV and that was it.

I took the steri-strips off, at 3 weeks, post-op. It looks pretty good - for a scar.

I had inside stitching and some type of 'glue' on the outside. The 'glue' was strong stuff - it took about 5 weeks post op to finally all come off. My incision healed really well.
Best Wishes!

I had inside stitches and the staples on the outside for 3 days and then they were removed and steri-strips were put on. I have not had any complications.

i had only inside stitches, and steri-strips. no problems with the stiches or healing. i have crazy sensitve skin, and the steri strips stayed on untill my post-op appt at week 3, then the dr. pulled them off. the steri-strips left big read marks, but they went away after about a week. oh - and i have hypertrophic scars, but i told my dr. pre-op and my surgery scar is not bad.
