Learn to identify and incorporate the hypodermis to help appose skin and effectively release tension on your primary skin closure. Demonstrations showing how to suture the hypodermis will be shown. In addition, learn the 2+1 Aberdeen, a tiny knot that is highly useful in ending hypodermal and intradermal suture lines.
