MTF,the worlds larges accredited tissue bank, has just introduced RENUVA! This is an Allograft Adipose Matrix or in plain English, adipose cellular material from the highest quality donors. The "remnants" of the fat cells (processed to keep the fat stimulation properties) have no imunogenic activity. Thus no skin test is necessary. No anesthesia is necessary! This could replace fat grafts in small volumes and can be used to correct minor "dents". Of course this is being used in cosmetic procedures to rplace certain fillers. Cheeks and hands are two areas that have caught the attention of some of the early adopters of this new Biostimulator.
Cheek Volume Restoration
In essence the material comes in a syringe and it is prepared by mixing or rehydrating it with saline. It is then ready for injection! The material tricks the body into making fat where it has been injected. Most studies demonstrate a 40% volume retentin long term in areas treated with RENUVA. AS larger volumes become available surgeons and dermatologists will address "Larger targets" such as buttocks or even breasts!
While Autologous Fat grafts will not be replaced by these Allograft Adipose Matrixes, they will add one more tool into our cosmetic and reconstructive group of options. The growth factors contained in the Renuva has even been shown to help heal certain types of wounds and soften longstanding scars much like those autologous fat grafts/ Call the office at 2390348-7362 to see if this could be benficial to your goals.
