Meet the surgeons using SofPulse


“I was impressed with the science behind SofPulse and began using it for my Abdominoplasty patients. My patients are experiencing less discomfort, less swelling and faster recovery than they did prior to using SofPulse. Patients today look for procedures with less downtime following plastic surgery and SofPulse helps us achieve that goal with our Abdominoplasty patients."
