3Surgical technique

The subcutaneous tissues and the skin are closed in two layers using simple continuous suture patterns. The skin sutures should be placed intradermally for a better cosmetic appearance.
The effect of periosteal stripping lasts approximately two months. If needed, the procedure can be repeated.

Note: overcorrection of the deformity is not an issue.
