Incision covered with the skin glue immediately after the surgery, a minimally invasive parathyroidectomy for primary hyperparathyroidism, in a 21-year-old female (note that the size of the parathyroid adenoma is bigger than the size of the incision); (the stich is still in place and is going to be removed in three hour after the surgery and right prior discharging the patient to home). See following picture in two weeks after the surgery.
