    Fascia Tightening ??

    Hi Dr Earle,

    Thank you very much for your response. Can you help me understand why some fascia tightening/closure techniques wouldn’t work? For example, things like fascia plication, imbrication, figure 8 stitching, fascia lata graft ? I don’t really understand why the fascia just can’t be opened and sewn tighter together (2-0 PDS running suture) ? I am not trying to challenge you…just trying to understand why some of these things wouldn’t work….

    Also, why would someone who does hand transplants be helpful? I expect you are referring to Kleinert Kutz in Kentucky??
