Simple


Purpose

Needle entry and exit points are hidden resulting in better cosmesis. More technically challenging.


Technique

Beforehand, the suture is usually anchored with a deep dermal suture exiting at the apex of the wound. Bites are taken between the epidermal-dermal layers along the same plane. Once finished, for the last stitch, leave a loop of suture out of the wound and tie the knot using this.
