Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery, led by Dr. Mark Hamilton, is a forerunner in the practice of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, focusing solely in this area. In order to provide patients with the best possible post-surgery outcomes, the office has recently adopted the use of ARTISS, an innovative product in the field of plastic surgery.
ARTISS (Solutions for Sealant) is a fibrin sealant used in plastic and reconstructive surgery in replacement of, or in addition to, sutures or staples. It may also be used as an adjunct to hemostasis on subcutaneous tissue surfaces. By using this tissue glue at the end of a facelift procedure there is no need for drains, which are typically placed for the first 24 hours when using other methods. As an added benefit for patients, swelling and bruising are decreased and the recovery time has been found to be shorter. Patients have conveyed that they are more comfortable going out after only a few short days following a procedure where ARTISS was used.
ARTISS is FDA-approved for the purposes of adhering tissue during facelift and burn surgeries. It is composed of human plasma, consisting of Thrombin and Fibrinogen. These are necessary components, natural to the body, for coagulation of the blood. By allowing the tissue to create a closer connection, the risk for complications, such as hematoma and seroma, are reduced. Surgeons are able to more accurately position the skin flaps with the use of ARTISS and ensure timely clot formation.
ARTISS is a great option for patients who are seeking the benefits of a mini lift, necklift or full facelift without the downtime. Dr. Hamilton says ARTISS’ value lies in the fact that “patients that use ARTISS definitely have less swelling and bruising (almost none) and seem to have a quicker recovery.” Read more about Dr. Hamilton’s use of ARTISS in his blog.
