I try to search, but I have no answer

 

what is the best to have a thin scar: staple or suture?

 

is there someone here who had 2 procedures one with staple and another one with suture and who can tell if is was different?

 

thank you

Donni,

 

The whole "suture versus staple" debate really boils down to physician preference. Some doctors believe sutures provide better closure and reduce the chances of scar stretching. Other doctors like using staples in the scalp, and believe this creates the best post-operative scar. Most experienced doctors have likely experimented with both and come to their own conclusions. In the hands of an expert, it is probably best to go with the method they use most frequently and consistently.

 

Good luck!
