At the time of your procedure, your surgeon draws a small amount of blood, approximately 30 cc. The blood is placed in a specialized centrifuge that spins and automatically separates the red blood cells from the plasma, isolating the platelet rich plasma (PRP). This technique provides a very concentrated group of natural growth factors to accelerate the complex healing processes and helps fat cells to become viable and permanent tissue. The PRP is available for your surgeon to use as needed during your surgery. The entire process takes less than 15 minutes and adds no extra time to the surgical procedure.
