Dr. Robert Schwartz: I've already put in a bunch of interrupted stitches to get the tension roughly where I want it. Now I'm fine tuning it with a continuous stitch that's actually going to tighten the muscles in two directions. It's going to pull them inward to the sides and shorten them a little bit vertically making them tighter.
