Laser Assisted Lipolysis (LAL): Also known as laser-guided lipo, this procedure requires the use of tumescent fluid. It is a less invasive and bloody procedure than the traditional liposuction method for removing fat.A small tube is inserted through a small incision to deliver laser energy and heat into the fat that is under the skin.
The patient underwent suction-assisted lipectomy with utilization of tumescent fluid of the right thigh.
It also improves lipo experience by spreading the procedures out, surgeon can use more tumescent fluid in the sensitive areas without maximizing the dose of Lidocaine.
In contrast to traditional methods of graft preparation, PureGraft washes the graft and drains the tumescent fluid, free lipid and debris in a closed sterile system, allowing for a cleaner graft in less time than it would take to prepare a comparable volume of graft tissue traditionally, the company said.
