How is a “Quill Suture” different from regular sutures?

Now how do the results of a quill suture compare to a traditional suture? Well, nobody has been able to do side-by-side studies and noticed enough of a difference that it would make a significant improvement in the final cosmetic result, but I’ll just say if the closure which it can be very time-consuming, for example, for a tummy tuck, it takes less time and it’s more efficient. It allows a surgeon really to spend more effort and more intensity on the aesthetic part of the procedure and less on the routine part of it and that is the closure.
