Simple interrupted sutures and running subcuticular sutures resulted in similar cosmetic outcomes at 12 months, according to recent findings.
The researchers compared cosmetic results and complications for the two techniques in a cohort of 142 patients.

The study included one independent observer who was blinded to treatment assignment.
