Surgical Sutures

Semi-elastic surgical sutures – the best threads for the best results!

Why are they special?

Characteristics & Benefits:

✓ Short elasticity – permits semi-elastic movement of the sutured tissues. This is a very important quality because, unlike other threads, these do not cut the tissues while they move.
✓ Braided – offered in various thicknesses (Metric). Allows the selection of proper thickness for the respective face and body areas to be lifted.
✓ Absorbable – the surgical sutures are absorbed in the human body within two years, i.e. after the final fibrosis formation (that is maximum one year and a half). This means there is no need to remove them, as they will disappear when they are no longer needed.
✓ Anti-microbial – they possess an excellent anti-microbial effect with a broad action range.

The above described qualities of the threads are the reason they are used in the scarless Serdev Sutures® Lifts to suture mobile fascias to immobile periosteum, fascias, and tendon insertions, and provide excellent, durable results.

Intended Use

NB! Prof. Dr. Nikolay P. Serdev prefers reduction of heaviness and volume prior bigger buttocks lift.
