The mending of meshes of cut off with gold wire

I

ndications

The low neckline undergoes a premature ageing and no medical or surgical technique brings real solutions.

• the cervico-facial face lift, to the price of a wide and dangerous separation, makes only one partial improvement (left higher). To in no case, the gold wire do not claim to compete with a face lift.
• the surface treatments (laser, peeling) could act on the cutaneous aspect but are too aggressive because the skin is fine, without solid bases
• the muscular and greasy plans are reduced at least, the skin resting almost on the osseous level: coasts, sternum
• the low neckline is a zone exposed (sun in particular) and subjected to traction (the weight of the centres involves a distension and the skin is thinned)

L

ines of Langer

On the basis of these observations, one adapted mending of meshes to the low neckline. One s'est based on anatomical data and especially on the cutaneous tension fields (lines of tension of LANGER). The cutaneous strength to the distension is more significant where the forces of traction are largest.

The goal of this mending of meshes is double:

• To reinforce these lines of tension while following their way exactly • To invigorate the skin and to create adherences thanks to the fibrose

T

echnique

• - Local anaesthesia • - Double mending of meshes out of V (= 2 zones). It can s'agir traditional mending of meshes with the wire d'or but sometimes c'est the technique of the CRANTOR which is indicated: the CRANTOR having especially a mechanical role.

Duration:
maximum 1 hour Continuations:
They are generally simple: • Painless Method
• Oedemas and bruises
• Linear Hematome on the way of the wire quickly resorbable in a few days
• No systematic antibiotics
• Sometimes an anti-inflammatory drug treatment can be prescribed
• The patients leave without bandage but a compression can be necessary during 1/2 hour.

Results: Stable 5 years on average
