APPLICATION OF DERMABOND ON A FRESH NECK WOUND

Picture of a fresh neck wound closed with subcuticular Monocryl sutures.  These absorbable sutures do not need to be removed.  They are buried under the skin and only their ends are visible.  The wound is also sealed with a layer of acrylic glue called Dermabond.   This layer protects the wound and allows the patient to take a shower. The Jackson-Pratt Drain tubing is sutured to the skin.  It is usually removed the day after the operation.
