Clarius Mobile Health is applauding the passing of a Florida bill that mandates ultrasound guidance during gluteal fat grafting procedures by plastic surgeons.

HB 1471, passed by Florida's House of Representatives and Senate, took effect on July 1. Through the law, Florida physicians who perform gluteal fat grafting must use ultrasound guidance to clearly see that fat is injected only in the subcutaneous space and not into the muscle.

The new law also requires that surgeons cannot meet the patient for the first time on the day of the surgery and that a surgeon cannot hand off the surgical procedure to a nurse or an assistant, Clarius said.
