Then lift up the skin with the near side laceration and mirror the course of the needle. Now move somewhat to the right of the subsection of this stitch, parallel to the incision line. Place the second subsection of the horizontal macro-suture like the first part. But this time from the near part to the small side. Finish by tying a surgeons knot and cutting both ends of the suture.
