His blade of choice? The Planatome blade.

What Is the Planatome Blade?

Dr. Agullo incorporates many therapies before and after surgery to improve the patient’s scarring. The surgical blade has not been improved in more than 100 years. The Planatome blade is the only technology that can be used at the time of making the incision to improve the resulting scar.  

The planatome blade has an edge that is incredibly smooth and perfected to an atomic level providing cleaner incisions. It is made using a process known as chemical mechanical planarization, or CMP, which is commonly used in the production of computer chips to carefully finish the surfaces of silicon wafers. 


The ability to improve surgical outcomes through the use of Planatome technology is a major advantage. It allows for a cleaner and more consistent cut line, reducing the risk of damage to the microscopic structures. In addition, a better incision can also help improve the recovery process and scarring.
