Abstract

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.
