Short scar face-lift with the use of fibrin sealant

Dermatol Clin. 2005 Jul;23(3):495-504, vii. doi: 10.1016/j.det.2005.03.003.


Fibrin sealants have been used in surgical procedures for decades. This article focuses on the short scar face-lift and the applicability of Tisseel fibrin sealant, or "tissue glue," in expediting the healing process in a series of consecutive patients undergoing face-lift surgery. The evolution of the face-lift incision into the short scar and the adjunctive use of the Tisseel fibrin sealant have both resulted in faster recovery.
