Tubal ligation reversal: Sewing the Layers

Is it important to do the tubal reversal individually closing each layer as opposed to sewing the outer layer of the tube only?

Sewing the tube together in layers not only sews the two parts of the tube back together but sews the tube open. It is harder to do reversals this way but it is the standard of care. You can tell from the way the dye comes out of the end of the tube that this is a better way to reverse a tubal ligation.
