I read an interesting article about wound closure in breast reductions and tummy tucks. To close these incisions precisely to get a good outcome is time consuming. There is now a new product called the Insorb system, which is FDA approved. The results from this study showed good scar quality compared to standard wound closure but the closure time using this system was 7 times faster in breast reduction procedures and 7.5 faster in abdominoplasties. This is important because anytime you lessen the anesthesia time there are usually fewer complications.
