Title
(EN) SUTURE INSTRUMENT AND METHOD OF SUTURING IN COSMETIC SURGERY
(FR) instrument de suture et procÉdÉ de suture en chirurgie cosmÉtique
Abstract
(EN)
A method of treating a patient in cosmetic surgery as seen in Figure 1, using first and second hollow tubular surgical members and a suture to be surgically inserted under the patient's facial skin, including the following steps cutting a single incision in the patienfs facial skm adjacent to the area of the ear, threading the first (20) and second hollow (30) tubular members with a continuous suture having thereon a plurality of spaced-apart, movable cross sutures, inserting the insertion tip with the threaded suture through the incision and under the facial skin, toward the patient's fold line in the nasal area, removing the second hollow tubular member from the first hollow tubular member and from the nasal area and out through the single incision, while leaving in place the suture (28) and the plurality of cross sutures so they are disposed in the facial tissue, pulling on the proximal tip of the suture which is extending out of the incision in order to pull the plurality of cross sutures in the facial tissue which causes the cross sutures to move from their substantially parallel relationship to the suture so that they are moved to a position which is substantially perpendicular to the suture in order to engage and anchor the cross sutures in the facial tissue, pulling and tying off the suture in the area of the incision which operates to pull the facial tissue and the facial fold line more tightly in order to minimize the appearance of the facial fold line in the nasal area.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de traitement d'un patient en chirurgie cosmétique par recours à un premier et un deuxième élément chirurgical tubulaire creux et à une suture destinée à être insérée par chirurgie en dessous de la peau du visage du patient. Le procédé comprend les étapes qui consistent à former une incision unique dans la peau du visage du patient en position adjacente à la zone de l'oreille, à enrouler sur le premier et le deuxième élément tubulaire creux une suture continue sur laquelle plusieurs sutures transversales mobiles sont disposées à intervalles, à insérer la pointe d'insertion avec la suture enroulée dans l'incision et en dessous de la peau du visage en direction de la commissure du patient dans la zone du nez, à enlever le deuxième élément tubulaire creux du premier élément tubulaire creux et de la zone du nez pour le faire sortir par l'incision unique tout en maintenant en position la suture et les différentes sutures transversales de telle sorte qu'elles soient placées dans le tissu du visage, à tirer la pointe proximale de la suture qui ressort de l'incision de manière à tirer les différentes sutures transversales dans le tissu facial, ce qui amène les sutures transversales à sortir de leur relation essentiellement parallèle par rapport à la suture pour se placer dans une position essentiellement perpendiculaire à la suture et engager et ancrer les sutures transversales dans le tissu du visage, et à tirer et nouer la suture dans la zone de l'incision, ce qui a pour effet de tirer plus étroitement le tissu du visage et la commissure faciale pour atténuer la commissure du visage dans la zone du nez.
