A New Technique of Stem Cell Concentrated Fat Grafting Is Utilized to Enhance Cosmetic and Reconstructive Procedures at Obi Plastic Surgery Clinic
Using the Adivive Fat Transfer System in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery is a novel technique which provides more patients with less invasive choices and longer-lasting results.
Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
In recent years, medical advancements have made it possible for plastic surgeons to provide patients with less invasive procedures that produce quicker and more optimal results when compared to traditional plastic surgery procedures. One of the most interesting techniques is the Adivive fat transfer system for facial and breast aesthetics. Adivive fat grafting is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after procedures at the Obi Plastic Surgery Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida.
Also, with the exciting introduction of the less invasive SlimLipo laser liposuction platform, patients can now have their areas of unwanted fat removed while simultaneously tightening skin of the donor areas. The Adivive fat processing system then concentrates the fat to its purest cellular component suitable for transfer to the face or breasts. The unwanted fat is filtered, centrifuged and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is then added to enhance the growth factors and stem cell components.
Since the stem cells are derived from adult fat and refined in their purest form, a higher survival rate occurs leaving the patient with better potential for long-lasting results compared to traditional techniques of fat grafting. Quite often Adivive, SlimLipo, PRP enhancement and surgical facelifting procedures are all performed during one surgical session. The recent addition of PRP has enhanced results and decreased healing time.
Dr. Lewis Obi has performed over 450 SlimLipo cases in 3,000 anatomic body areas during the past 45 months. He also has performed approximately 100 Adivive fat grafting procedures since January of 2011. These techniques are applicable to many reconstructive procedures including the treatment of post mastectomy deformities in breast cancer patients. “These unique technological advances are continuing to rapidly evolve at our clinic,” explains Dr. Obi during his comments on the recent addition of the Adivive system.
