Spitting Stitches on Areola/Nipple Complex
The information in this section is made available through the generous support of Dr. Grant Stevens.
Do spitting stitches on the incisions around the nipple/areola complex cause more noticeable scars?
Usually not, unless there is a significant infection with a large wound (rare). If necessary, later scar revision can minimize any postoperative scars.
