We have an abundance of procedures to make small wound, especially the ones that require sutures, invisible with the following:

Skin Grafts Skin grafting is popular technique for covering wounds with healthy skin (this is especially true for burn wounds). They are also ideal for closing wounds where there is a lack of adjacent skin.Tissue Expansion This is new technique for artificially stretching skin and underlying tissue. In this procedure a balloon is inserted under the skin, and is gradually filled with water. Over time this process stretches the skin and allows the doctor use the new space to close the wound. This method is most often used in breast reconstructions surgery. Flaps It's a procedure that allows doctors to move skin, muscle and even bone from one part of the body to another. The removed section, called the "flap" carries its own blood vessels, which enable it to reattach to vessels in the new location. It's a micro surgical procedure that has helped hundreds of thousands of patience across the world. Flaps are most often used to treat cancer and trauma patients. Vacuum Assisted Closure (VAC) Therapy VAC is a procedure designed to accelerate healing. The procedure is particular suited for fixing wounds, burns & ulcers through removal of infectious materials and fluids through wound contraction via a vacuum.
