I understood the importance and priority of the surgery but at the same time, I have a full head of hair and didn’t want a large bald spot atop my head so I started researching on the internet for a something that would help aid in a primary closure which would also help with the aesthetic outcome as well."
"After searching for many hours I finally came across this company called SUTUREGARD.com who claimed to have a medical device that would greatly aid in the primary closure* of large incisions by gently stretching the skin. I immediately contacted the company and found them to be very helpful. I referred my plastic surgeon to them and he said their product appeared doable and was willing to give it a try. He did use the product and after stretching my scalp skin gently for about 20 minutes, was able to close the wound simply in a straight line. He said he would have done a skin flap if we didn’t use the SUTUREGARD®."
