Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank You for consulting HealthcareMagic!

There is much big difference between two procedures. But the one done in hospitals would follow many aseptic precautions and so it looks without scar. You can go to any surgical department and request for the typical hospital style procedure.

Stay healthy and thank you for consulting! You can contact me again anytime, if you need clarifications or further assistance in future. Kindly rate the answer if you are satisfied.
