Hi Rachel, In my first lap I had 2 wounds that were closed with butterfly bandages and glue. The surgery I just had in March was completed with only 1 stitch on each of the 3 incisions on the outside (dissolvable sutures were used on the inside) and a couple of stitches in my belly button. Good luck, Jessica
