Wire Subcision

Often used in combination with structural fat grafting techniques, wire subcision is a procedure that allows for the release of tethered scars or very deep wrinkles through tiny skin punctures. Innovated by a Russian plastic surgeon in 1991, wire subcision devices are available today under the name Wire Scalpel® and SurgiWire®. A very fine braided wire, attached to a needle at both ends, is passed beneath the skin at the level of the tethering, and is used to divide any attachments between the undersurface of the skin and the deeper tissues of the face. Once these attachments have been severed, fat grafts are often placed between the skin and deeper tissues to prevent their re-formation. This technique is particularly useful for diffuse acne scars, depressed scars of any type, and very deep wrinkles not treatable by BOTOX® injection or fillers alone. We will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure during a consultation at our practice.

When you visit our practice, we will be able to provide you with more in-depth post-procedural instructions following wire subcision of scars or wrinkles.
