Principles of Plastic Surgery - Skin Physics
This Principles of Plastic Surgery – Skin Physics course will teach you:
- The importance of the skin physics: skin characteristics must be considered, especially the anisotropic qualities of the skin. A wound should be closed in the direction of the lines of maximal extensibility as it is in this direction that the least amount of tension is applied. The resting skin tension lines run perpendicular to the lines of maximal extensibility. The slack of the skin is the movability of the skin relative to the lower layers.
With the following tips you might perform the Principles of Plastic Surgery – Skin Physics even better:
- Resting skin tension lines
- Slack measurement
