Does cesarean stitch and ovarian cyst surgery stitch different?

depends: The type of incision can be the same in both c-section and ovary resection, the surgeon opens the skin along the bikini line and then opens the fascia from the umbilicus to the pubic bone. The same suture, usually absorbable can be used in both. The ovarian cyst surgery also can be done with a laprascopic approach, minimally invasive. Okay to ask your surgeon about these choices.
