AESTHETIC WOUND UTURING AND BONDING

In order to keep the wound scar as small as possible, the right suture must be applied to enable aesthetic healing. An intradermal suture works best for this purpose.
Wound suturing consists in sewing up the wound in such a way that its edges are perfectly connected, avoiding curling, collapsing of the scar or formation of wrinkles on the skin surface. Aesthetic wound suturing enables careful sewing up the wound, which is possible by applying the suture under the surface of the skin. After thorough cleaning of the wound, the suture is placed, which consists in applying the threads under the skin parallel to the skin surface. During subsequent punctures into the subcutaneous tissue, a physician needs to gently curl the edges of the wound. The final result is a suture that seals the edges of the wound without leaving any traces on the skin surface.

AESTHETIC WOUND
TREATMENT METHODS

1

INTRADERMAL SUTURE

Intradermal suture is characterised by the fact that after healing there are no visible traces of needle insertions. This is possible due to the fact that the suture is placed under the surface of the skin. This continuous suture is made in such a way that the threads are located into deeper layers of the tissue, parallel to the surface of the skin. When making this type of suture, a physician needs to gently turn up the wound edges, so this type of suture requires a lot of skill.
Intradermal suture excellently speeds up healing and is usually made with soluble threads.

WOUND BONDING

Some small wounds do not require suturing, although if left alone they could result in an unsightly scar. Some of them can be treated with tissue glue, which closes the edges of the wound non-invasively. Additionally, special strips are put on the whole area, which prevent the wound from spreading during healing.

This often results in an almost invisible scar, which is just a thin line with even edges.

3

AESTHETIC CLASSIC SUTURE

In case of extensive wounds with jagged edges, applying a classic suture is often the only possible debridement method. However, this can be done in an extremely careful manner with removal of some tissue that would affect final appearance of the scar. This is much more labour intensive than classical emergency suturing and requires considerable skills of a physician. The aesthetic result is not as perfect as when using an intradermal suture, but much better than with standard wound suturing.

I highly recommend!

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AESTHETIC AND CONVENTIONAL WOUND SUTURING?

The purpose of applying sutures on the wound is to bring the wound edges closer together and to fuse them, which allows the skin to heal at the site where its continuity has been interrupted. Surgical sutures do more than just provide an appropriate aesthetic effect. Suturing of the wound accelerates the healing process and also minimises the risk of complications, such as infection.
The aesthetic effect of wound suturing is influenced by several factors, including a technique of suture application, a type of sutures chosen, location and depth of the wound. The most common sutures in plastic surgery are single sutures, which involve applying sutures as close to the wound edges as possible – maximum of 1 to 2 mm. The distance between individual sutures must be even and not exceed 2-3 mm. When placing the sutures, edges of the wound must be flanged slightly outwards. Another type of suture, most often used in public hospitals and in the ED, is a continuous circular suture: it involves sewing the wound with one piece of thread, led diagonally or perpendicularly to the wound edges. This type of suture allows rapid closure of the wound, but it is difficult to ensure its aesthetic appearance after healing. This difficulty is due to the problematic adaptation of the wound edges. Such wound suturing techniques do not guarantee an impeccable aesthetic result. An intradermal suture works best for this purpose.
What distinguishes intradermal suture is greater ease of wound margin adaptation as well as the lack of puncture sites. Intradermal suture is used when perfect aesthetics of the scar must be necessarily achieved. Special thin hooks are used to adapt the edges and the thread is placed under the skin surface. Thanks to the fact that sutures are not visible on the skin surface, they can be left in place for a longer period of time, thus reducing tissue tension. Such wound suturing allows for a faster healing effect and formation of an aesthetic scar.

EFFECT OF
AESTHETIC SUTURING

Aesthetic wound suturing results in perfect wound healing with formation of an even and aesthetic scar. Sagging, pulling or wrinkling of the scar may be avoided. The scar has a smooth surface and optimal thickness. This makes it much less visible than a scar after classic suturing. An excellent aesthetic effect can be achieved, which is particularly important for wounds located on the face or other visible, often exposed areas of the skin. Appropriate suturing also ensures faster wound healing and limits bleeding at the wound edges or occurrence of complications.
