Surgical Applications — Plastic

BREAST SURGERY

Recommend: Ultra-Thin LightMat®

BREAST AUGMENTATION

  • Transaxillary inframammary
  • Mastopexy
  • Transverse Rectus Abdominis Myocutaneous Flap (TRAM)

BREAST RECONSTRUCTION

  • Harvestry of muscles
  • Reconstruction of the extremities
  • Harvesting of muscles via limited
    i.e. incision gracilis as an example

How, When and Why It Helps

  • Minimize incision size especially in Breast Augmentation.
  • Lights up the cavity inside the breast helping the surgeon:
    • See vascularization and important landmarks.
    • Assess anatomical structure and condition of tissue.
    • Quickly identify bleeders and cauterize saving time and blood.

Recommend: Thin Malleable LightMat® or Ultra-Thin LightMat®

  • Rhytidectomy (Face Lift)
  • Genioplasty (Reshaping the Chin)
  • Submental Plication

How, When and Why It Helps

  • Helps minimize incisions and maximize visualization, helping the surgeon:
    • Clearly see vascularization and associated tissues
    • Avoid nerve damage
