What is PRP?
Dr. Kevin Sadati at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery offers a wide range of beneficial procedures that can offer patients a more youthful and aesthetically appealing look. Along with offering a range of procedures, Dr. Sadati has conducted extensive research, performed numerous procedures and even developed some of his own which he discusses in peer-reviewed and scholarly journals.
One such procedure is the use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) during fat grafting. Dr. Sadati, a pioneer of the procedure, noticed that an increasing number of his patients did not want foreign matter implanted in their faces. To address this issue, he created a new fat grafting technology. Dr. Sadati’s fat grafting procedure using PRP is performed under local anesthesia, which removes the risks associated with general anesthesia. The results are more natural-looking and longer lasting, with patients being much less stressed and recovering more quickly than with traditional procedures.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
One reason this procedure is so successful is Dr. Sadati’s use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP is rich in a variety of valuable natural growth factors including PDGF (Platelet Derived Growth Factor) and TGF-ß1 (Transforming Growth Factor ß1). These special growth factors are an important part of the initiation and progression of wound healing for a more successful recovery. In his article “Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Utilized To Promote Greater Graft Volume Retention in Autologous Fat Grafting,” published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Sadati explains that “The use of autologous fat as a graft medium has been fraught with skepticism by the cosmetic surgery community. This skepticism lies in the relatively inconsistent and unpredictable survival rates of autologous fat grafts to date. Through the development of our new procedure and the study we conducted, we found that PRP added to autologous fat aids in graft volume retention and survival when used clinically for soft-tissue augmentation and reconstruction.”
Dr. Sadati has the experience and skill necessary to perform this and many other cosmetic procedures correctly and with minimal discomfort to the patient.
