Natural fat transfer mixed with Platelet Rich Plasma and/or stem cells is an advanced therapy used to improve skin fullness and appearance. Natural fillers differ from synthetic fillers in that it uses autologous (one’s own) fat for dermal filling. Natural fillers can be used to instantly add volume to facial tissue on the chin, nose, neck, jawline, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, brow, upper eyelids, temples, and lips — as well as on the hands, breasts, buttocks, and other areas.
Mixing one’s own fat with one’s own stem cells improves the survival of the transplanted fat.
A fat transfer makes intuitive sense for someone looking for a safe, natural filler because fat is readily available in most and can be spared from other parts of the body. With fewer risks than injections of artificial substances, traditional fat transfer methods come with the possible disadvantage of the fat often being largely reabsorbed by the surrounding tissues. To compensate for the fat that is typically lost to reabsorption, many physicians overfill the targeted areas. These basic fat transfer techniques have been in use for decades, but our adoption of gentler, more cell-preserving methods of harvest and incorporation of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) or even stem cells with the fat transferred has made the process more effective by minimizing the cell damage that causes reabsorption, and retaining the fat as a living tissue.
