Where can the lymph nodes be taken for a lymph node transplant for Lymphedema surgery?

There are several accessible areas around the body where lymph nodes may be harvested with its blood vessels to be transplanted in an arm or leg for lymphedema treatment.   This includes the groin area (the area near the hip bone (Groin Flap)), the subaxillary region (arm pit region(Subaxillary Flap), and the neck/collar bone area (Transverse Cervical Flap)).   Each area contains a lymph node basin which can be harvested with the flap tissue.  Careful dissection and evaluation of the area needs to be done prior to using the tissues from each specific area.

Be sure to have a thorough discussion with your surgeon regarding your "donor site" options for lymph nodes when considering lymph node transplant to treat lymphedema.

Laser hair removal Dermatologists use lasers sources to safely and effectively treat larger areas of unwanted hair with minimal level of pain for patient and fewer complications than other hair-reduction methods.Lasers are equipped with a cooling system that eliminate the heat from the laser vim and also protects the front layer of skin from excessive heating and potential changes in pigmentation.IPL devices send specific concentrated light through the skin that is absorbed by the melanin pigment present in the hair follicle shafts. Because hair grows in cycles, repeated treatments are necessary to destroy the hair follicles.

There are a lot of men and women that get plastic surgery every day. It is really quiet something if you really think about it. It is not something that I have thought about doing myself, but others can do as there own.
