Stitches, skin grafts, and skin flaps
Stitches and sutures are the most common way to fix a defect. This involves some adjustment of the wound and sewing the skin edges together. This procedure speeds healing and can offer a good cosmetic result. For example, the scar can be hidden in a wrinkle line. Sutures are usually removed at one week or dissolvable sutures may be used. In some cases, a surgical glue may be applied to the top layer after deeper layers are closed with dissolvable sutures.
