Fat Grafting

Surgical Procedure: Fat grafting with Puregraft

Fat can be removed from areas such as the lower abdomen & moved to the facial area such as cheeks, temples & lips. This procedure can restore fullness to the areas that it is grafted providing a more youthful appearance.

How long do the results last? On average a patient will retain 55 – 80% of the grafts. The grafts remaining at approximately 6 months postoperatively will likely stay in place throughout your life.

New technology: Dr Rodman uses Puregraft – Suneva Medical filtration systems for all fat grafting cases in the operating room. The advantage is that Dr Rodman can remove up to 97% of the contaminants greatly increasing the percentage of grafts the human body will retain.

Does this require general anesthesia? Typically yes. The initial or higher volume that needs to be harvested from the lower body can be uncomfortable with only local anesthesia. Facial lipofilling with Pure Graft is a popular add on procedure when a patient is already going to the operating room for other procedures.

Recovery time: Typically a patient can return to work within a few days to a week. Most will have some residual swelling for 3 – 4 weeks. You will not need to wear body compression garments for this procedure.

Benefits: In addition to adding definition while greatly reducing visible wrinkles. Fat contains regenerative cells that can assist with creating new blood vessels & collagen that will promote more youthful & vibrant skin.

Potential alternative solutions. Micronized fat grafting with Dermapose, Implants, Renuva HD & injectable fillers such as Revance & Restylane based products

Office Procedure: Micronized fat grafting with Dermapose by Suneva

Micronized fat grafting makes small volume fat transfer safe, fast & easy. This system offers Dr Rodman the ability to harvest, purify & microsize the material within a sterile closed system syringe in our office. She can then use these syringes to restore the lost volume in your cheeks & temples.

How long do the results last? On average a patient will retain 55 – 80% of the grafts. The grafts remaining at approximately 6 months postoperatively will likely stay in place throughout your life.

Can this be done with local anesthesia? Typically yes.

Recovery time? Typically a few days to 2 weeks. The area where the grafts were harvested & injected may be sore. Patients may return to work in a few short days.

What is the Benefit? Micronized fat is the ideal size that retains structure & regenerative properties. This process maximizes revascularization & nutrient exposure enhancing graft survival. Another benefit of refining fat grafting is that the final results are visible in a shorter amount of time due to less swelling & potential bruising.

Difference between fat grafting in the operating room & in the office? Think of the operating room as higher volume defining results & in office as lower volume refinement. This is where discussing what your goals are with Dr Rodman are critical so that she can make the best recommendation possible for you.
