Yes, but you can draw together muscle layers. You can then suture the subcutaneous and skin layers. Very quickly you go from an open wound to a closed wound, the person or animal can walk without fear of the intestines falling out. So an immediate benefit.
Then of course healing will be much much quicker, so yes, a physician aids there but the surgery has given an enormous head start and the healing will be more rapid.
