Fat Grafting Enriched With
REGENERATIVE CELLS also referred as adipose-derived stem and regenerative
cells (ADRCs) are being used for breast augmentation and facial
rejuvenation. The Celution system helps to extract ADRCs and PureGraft
system is used to purify the fat graft. Celution enables the surgeon to
extract a stable amount of ADRCs and PureGraft uses lipodialysis, a
methodology that effectively removes saline and free lipids in a short
period of time, whereas in the past, doctors were using a centrifuge to
extract saline and to free lipids from the fat graft.
PureGraft is a sterile plastic bag that enables a manual process of
separating fat tissue from blood, saline and other unwanted materials and
process can be completed in 15 minutes. Because of the unique action of stem
cells, this process produces fat graft survival higher than that achieved by
conventional fat injection and allows durable, natural rejuvenation.
Some of surgeons who have performed a large number of surgeries have found
the Breast size has become stable after three months, and the average size
difference is 3.3 cm when they measured the patients nine months after the
cases, This technique can be used not only for breast augmentation but also
for breast reconstruction after partial mastectomy. In addition, for facial
rejuvenation, this technology has the possibility of improving not only for
wrinkles but also for skin texture.
Some challenges have to looked into while working with ADRCs and these
include how to best harvest, process and inject the graft tissue so that it
does not get absorbed and thats where Cytoris Celution device
comes handy as the cell-enriched grafts can be prepared at the point of care
in about 90 minutes. Cell enhanced fat graft can be used for breast
augmentation,reconstruction ,facial rejuvenation,& to improve the
quality of scars.
