Lipotransfers are ideal for restorative surgery, but retention is a problem. In a recent study, PRP grade concentrated platelets were used for a study examining how platelet-rich plasma helps to enhance fat graft survival.
In this age of crash diets and liposuction, it might sound surprising that some people receive fat transplants. But seriously, fat grafting is widely used and valued as a feasible method for addressing moderate defects caused by injuries, surgical removal of tumours, and congenital deficiencies. Fat grafting is safe and has the look and feel of normal soft tissue. However, long-term volume retention is suboptimal (30-70%), often requiring multiple surgeries.
