Precision Fat Transfer - The Newest Fat Transfer Technology
Have you ever looked in the mirror and wanted to transfer fat from one part of your body to another? Fat transfer is one of the most popular procedures for that and Dr. Bill Johnson of Innovations Medical can tell you more about it.
Fat transfer is one of the fastest growing areas of cosmetic surgery and one of the main reasons for that is that there is no chance of rejection or having a reaction, since it’s you. Another great thing is, it looks and feels so natural and normal – there is no chance of it changing shape or looking unnatural like implants can. Fat transfer technology is getting better and better and more advanced which brings you better results.
There is a great new device called High Volume Precision Fat Grafting, known as Precision Fat. It suctions the fat straight into a sterile container and the fat is then separated from the numbing fluid and pumped right back into the tissue. Before this innovative device, you had to put the fat into syringes and then inject it. The problem with that was, the more you interfere with the fat, the less of it survives. By speeding up the separation, fat survival is highly increased.
You can use it on any area except the face because it requires a more detailed work. The most popular areas are breasts and buttocks. The main reason why buttocks augmentation never got popular is because you would feel the implant too much, but with Precision Fat, it looks and feels normal and natural.
Some natural substances are also used for fat cells survival, like platelet-rich plasma. The process includes drawing blood and centrifuging it which separates the platelet-rich plasma. By mixing PRP with fat, you increase its survival up to 30%. Another new method for fat survival is using enhanced stem cells.
