What is Fat Transfer ?
Fat transfer, Fat Grafting or autologous fat grafting is a great way to non-surgically rejuvenate areas of the body that require more volume such as the face, hands, buttocks and dimpling or indentations from previous liposuction surgeries. It is essentially taking fat from one area on the body and transferring it to another area. The best way to harvest the fat for fat transfer is when it is being done in conjunction with liposuction.
Fat Transfer Method
During liposuction, the fat that has been removed is separated, centrifuged for purification and then re-injected back into various places on a patients body and face. Typical areas include nasal labial folds, lower eyelid tear troughs and temples as well as dimpling and indentations for revision liposuction or adding volume to aging hands. In the long run, fat transfer can save a patient thousands of dollars that they would normally spend on fillers.
Fat Transfer and the Adivive System
1) The Adivive system has a high centrifuge rate meaning more purified cells are retrieved as well as more stem cells are harvested. In the past, bone marrow has been used to harvest stem cells but now it has been discovered that fat cells contain more stem cells than bone marrow.
2) Adivive has better purification system than other fat purification systems meaning a higher take rate of fat cells. Therefore the more likely the fat being transferred will last longer and in many times be permanent.
3) Adivive is a closed system (fat not exposed to impurities). Less contamination means better cell viability.
4) No need to overcorrect (which is very common) which means better precision in the placement of fat.
