I am pleased to share with you a new technique that I have developed to deal with the fragility of aging and thin skin when performing surgery.
Please read my article entitled, "A Novel Method of Skin Closure for Aging or Fragile Skin," found in the October 2015 issue of Cutis Magazine.
This procedure uses Tegaderm (R), a polyethylene film with an acrylate adhesive from the 3M Company, distributed by Nexcare TM.
I have had great success using this method on my patients allowing for fewer tears, less infection, quicker healing and more favorable scar formation.
I hope you find this article/video useful.
