Transferring your own body fat has many benefits over synthetic fillers. There is no possibility of allergic reaction or filler rejection, your own fat is more soft and supple, and produces a more natural appearance, and it can be used as a small volume filler for the face and neck or a large volume filler for breast augmentation and body contouring.
Stem cell fat transfer is a technique that increases the survival rates and life of transferred fat by enriching it with Mesenchymal stem cells and platelet rich plasma, (PRP). Transferred fat cells are replenished and replaced by millions of mesenchymal stem cells that differentiate into fat cells. And because mesenchymal stem cells replicate, they can continue to replace damaged fat cells for a year or more. The added platelets and growth factors of PRP aid in the vitality of the mesenchymal stem cells.
Transferred fat enhanced with millions of mesenchymal stem cells and PRP is a procedure pioneered by Dr. Lewis J. Obi and has provided his patients with more natural and longer lasting results with less bruising in his OperaLift scarless facelifts, fat transfer breast augmentations and reconstruction, and in body contouring procedures.
