There are several methods for harvest, process, and delivery of fat tissue. For an optimal result, it is important to use a gentle, optimized technique for each step of the procedure.
Liposuction can be done with a simple syringe and cannula for smaller volumes, or with a suction device for larger volumes of fat. There are many types of devices, cannulas, and numbing solutions available which may effect the quality of the tissue. Generally, lower vacuum settings and smaller cannulas are best for minimizing disruption to the donor area. This leads to less inflammation and soreness after the procedure.
There are also several techniques available for processing the tissue. An improved technology called Puregraft, has been developed to improve the efficiency of this step. Using a gentle and efficient filtration system, Puregraft cleans the fat tissue removing unwanted contaminants, leaving a highly purified graft. Removal of the blood and oil cells reduces the amount of inflammation and allows you to recovery much faster than before. Most importantly, it has been scientifically proven to give you more predictable results than the standard centrifugation technique.
Re-injecting the fat should be done with smaller syringes and cannulas. The fat should be injected in small droplets to maximize the surface area of the tissue, allowing nutrients to diffuse into the grafted fat to promote fat survival and retention.
