just a thought, but wouldn't it be similar to the stomach (GI) tube scar? I mean I don't know if everyone has to have GI tubes put in, but I did and it wasn't sutured closed at all. They just pulled it out and it closed up in 2 days. Sure it might be a bit bigger, but in my case at least I'm not going to be a stomach model anytime soon seeing as how I have a 7.5 inch scar running the full length of my belly, the GI tube scar, soon a colostomy scar and after that an ileostomy scar. I'm gonna look like a treasure map!
