Saline, which Clinics Employ.....?

Could any patients and / or Doctors comment on which clinics employ filling the recipient area with saline solution to aid in “dense packing” this area?

I believe for example that Alvi Armani employs this method.

Naturally, it would not be a requirement in every case.

What are the conditions when it is employed?

Thanks in advance for the comments.

It is called tumescence. Many if not most physicians employ tumescence mainly to control bleeding not for “dense packing”.

Hairtech,

Thank you for clearing that up.

Tumescence is an important integral part of HT. It is highly debatable also as some folks argue that it is used too much in some clinics. I am curious why you became curious with tumescense? Also, many clinics use a vasoconstrictor such as epiniphrine and/or an anaestetic such as lidocaine or both mixed into the saline to increase the tumescent effect, if you will.
