CENTURION, P.; CUBA, J.L.  e  NORIEGA, A.. Body contouring using laser diode 980-nm (LSDL 980-nm) assisted lipolysis: a safe procedure. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.4, pp.355-364. ISSN 1989-2055.

The availability of multiple laser systems on the market with different power and wavelengths and the existence of several scientific papers with contradictory presents, have created great confusion and doubts among plastic surgeons with regard to the laser lipolysis technique. We report a surgical protocol for liposuction diode laser-980 nm (LSDL-980 nm) applied to 240 patients. We evaluate the security of the technique according to the complication rate and the postoperative development of patients submitted to the technique. We use a diode laser-980 nm (ORlight®), transporting its energy through a 600 μm fiber. This concludes in the aplication of 99 J per cm2 of treated area with a width of until 4 cm of subcutaneous adipose tissue. All the complications were considered minor or nonexistent. Within the minor complications that were 48.33 % (116 patients) most cases presented minimum echymosis (less than 2 % of the body surface). The time required to control pain was between 1 and 2 days, depending on the procedure. We consider important to incorporate the LSDL 980 -nm in clinical practice because it is a less traumatic technique with a low rate of minor complications, significant skin retraction, short recuperation period and less postoperative pain.
