Tight Scar Tissue
Stretched Micro Cavities
PALF is revolutionary technique that allows patients to move their torso, limbs and appendages that suffer from scar tissue. PALF short for (Percutaneous Aponeurotomy & Lipo-Filling) involves using thin needles to poke multiple holes through the scar tissue region to allow for more flexibility. The technique allows the surgeon to stretch the skin and cover open areas. This amazing technique was developed by Dr. Roger Khouri – Chief Hand Surgeon.
