Abstract

In blepharoplasty and facelift procedures, different methods may be used to reduce postoperative complications and the need for draining, including the use of complete haemostatic, quilting sutures, heterologous glue, compressive dressing, and tissue sealants. Different types of surgical adhesives have emerged as alternatives capable of fixing and guaranteeing adhesion of tissue. Among these, biological sealants (or fibrin sealants) are produced by recurring to a combination of material from a pool of known donors and bovine thrombin, whereas platelet-rich plasma (PRP) glue is an autologous preparation obtained from the patient’s own blood and which acts as a growth-factor reservoir during treatment.
