Medical Dermal Adhesive – Dermabond

You will have dissolvable stitches under the skin, so Dermabond is not mandatory but rather a nice convenience. The surgeon can apply Dermabond to the edges of the incisions so you will not need to apply gauze and tape or bandages to that incision site. Dermabond will naturally wash off in about 7 to 10 days.

If you decide you would like to use Dermabond, you can:
  • Order Dermabond or Vetbond from Amazon
 
  • Ask your pharmacist at home for it

  • Purchase it from a local medical supply store. Usually a prescription is not needed to purchase Dermabond.
 

 If you do want to use it, you must bring it with you to Tijuana and give it to your surgeon before surgery, because it can only be applied during your surgical procedure. Dermabond is one of the better brands of dermal adhesive, and it costs about $25. You will likely need one tube per person. This is not for cosmetic surgery patients; it is only for those having weight loss surgery.
