Harmonic Scalpel West Palm Beach
Go back to work days after a facelift? Yes—thanks to the remarkable Harmonic Scalpel. Using modern ultrasound vibration rather than traditional scalpel technology, this revolutionary Harmonic technology allows a significantly more comfortable recovery, with less swelling and bruising. Dr. Luis Viñas is a pioneer combining Harmonic technology with minimally invasive surgical techniques.
The Harmonic product line has been used worldwide for over a decade in more than nine million surgical procedures, in a variety of specialties. Harmonic technology is new in plastic surgery and provides many surgical benefits, including minimal lateral thermal spread of heat to healthy tissue, no electricity passing through the body, and no current induced muscular stimulation/movement. Traditional scalpels “cut” with either mechanical force or with electro cartery burning. These tissues also get hotter causing more traumas, swelling, bleeding, bruising, and sometimes the need for multiple dissections, a longer surgery time, and a protracted recovery period. All of these negative side effects of traditional surgery can be avoided with proper use of the Harmonic Scalpel.
Dr. Viñas joined the Faculty of Ethicon Endo-Surgery to teach plastic surgeons across America in the use of this technology and developing new techniques. He incorporates the use of the Harmonic technique into these specialized surgical procedures:
- Ultra “V” Facelift
- Rhinoplasty | Nose Reshaping
- Blepharoplasty | Eyelid Lift
- Neck Lift
- Abdominoplasty | Tummy Tuck
- Thigh Lift
- Body Lift
