Closing and Dressing the Wounds in Endoscopic Browlift

  • Robert G. Fante

Abstract

As with any wound under tension, layered closure will provide better scar appearance. It is easy to place several buried interrupted dermal absorbable sutures (e.g., 4-0 or 5-0 Monocryl, Vicryl) at each of the incisions prior to placement of skin staples. For highly visible incisions in men with male pattern baldness, consider meticulous skin closure with 5-0 or 6-0 polypropylene instead of staples.
