Steri-strips Vs Traditional Sutures for Tummy Tuck?
I have consulted several doctors regarding a Tummy Tuck. Of the two, I am leaning towards one who uses steri-strips on the outer most layer of skin. The other uses traditional sutures. Which is better for healing and for creating a clean (i.e. narrow and straight) scar?
