About stick and place
What Is The Stick and Place Method?
The “Stick and Place” (S&P) method of implantation involves incising and promptly grafting. This technique allows for smaller, less invasive blades.
Using local anesthesia, skilled incisions are made to graft without scarring. The skin shrinks promptly after openings. Additionally, a specialized blade dilates the incision, adjusts the graft’s height, and stops bleeding.
The “stick and place” technique eliminates the need for larger openings as grafts are placed simultaneously, preventing unnecessary skin shrinkage.
