WOUND CLOSURE
  • All lumps should be closed with absorbable suture if possible
  • All bumps should be packed and left open
  • All skin lesions should have flaps raised to close with absorbable suture if possible, but may need to use Nylons depending on tension
  • Use this time while you are closing the wound to discuss post-operative care
    • See the PDFs below for post-operative care forms to make sure we are consistent
    • Give patient a copy of the form at the end of the procedure
