I’ve heard that when performing a fat graft, if the stem cells are used, the results are amazing. Do you perform this?
More stem cells are present in harvested fat than in any other location, including bone marrow. We utilize the Puregraft system to process our harvested fat. Puregraft is a specialized filtration bag that leaves the living fat cells and the stem cells to be transferred while removing nearly everything else (red blood cells, white blood cells, ruptured fat cells etc.) The transferred fat and stem cells then graft to the areas of the face in which they are placed restoring the volume which has been lost with age. The stem cells perhaps have an added benefit over fat alone, however this has not been proven scientifically.
