Insertion of Redon Drains

■ Two size-12 Redon drains leading out onto the shaved mons pubis are inserted into two sections of the lower abdomen before the skin is closed. The Redon drains are removed after the second postoperative day and the catheter is removed after 24 h.

° Wound Closure in Three Layers

■ Skin closure is carried out layer by layer, first with concealed

2.0 Monocryl interrupted sutures, then with concealed 3.0 Monocryl subcutaneous interrupted sutures. Finally, the wound is closed with running 4.0 Monocryl sutures. For this, it is important that suturing begins at the lateral ends on both sides so that the two sutures meet at point a. This prevents the skin being uneven in the lateral area and produces the desired traction in a medial direction.
