San Diego - Tissue glues and sealants can reduce recovery time by as much as 10 days, according to Neal R. Reisman, M.D. "In surgical procedures from facelifts to mastectomies, using some form of a tissue glue or a sealant saves as much as a week to 10 days of recovery," said Dr. Reisman, clinical associate professor, St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, Baylor College of Medicine.
