I'm having laparoscopic cholecystectomy to remove gallbladder. Will the wounds be stitched with staples or glued ?

In brief: Dissolveable sutures

Most laparoscopic surgeons will close the small incisions with buried absorbable sutures which do not require removal and will dissolve away on their own.
