TLL patients also experienced less bruising and swelling post treat- ment. Researchers Joseph P. Hunstad, MD, FACS, et al, performed a con- tralateral study with 31 adult female subjects. They compared surgical effi ciency, lipoaspirate, and differences in bruising, swelling, tenderness and incision appearance ratings between TLL and SAL procedures. The average volumes of infusion (1.242 L for TLL vs. 1.276 L for SAL) and aspirated supernatant fat (704 mL for TLL vs. 649 mL for SAL) were statistically similar. The median fat extraction rate with TLL was faster than SAL (35.6 mL/min vs. 25 mL/min) and stroke rate was reduced in TLL vs. SAL procedures (48 strokes/min vs. 120 strokes/ min). The TLL-treated side had lower mean total scores for bruising, swelling, treatment site tenderness and incision appearance post treatment.
