SCAR FROM STITCHES:
HOW TO PREVENT IT
Stitches are an essential part of treating severe wounds. They hold the sides of the wound together so that it heals to form a neat line. There are many different types of stitch or suture (natural or synthetic, dissolvable or non-dissolvable…) which are chosen according to the type and location of the wound. To prevent stitches from leaving scars, it is important to keep to the recommended leave-in time which varies according to the part of the body.
