Renuva Fat Transfer for the Hands, Face & Body
Renuva is an autologous fat transfer procedure that is used for restoring volume in the hands, face, and body. This off-the-shelf fat graft can be performed as a quick, in-office procedure. Extracellular matrix that contains proteins, collagens, and growth factors is preserved by processing adipose allograft.
The resulting matrix acts to support the cellular vascularization and repopulation at the injection site. Renuva is used where natural fat exists in the body.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides Renuva Allogenic fat grafting procedure to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.
Benefits and Features
Renuva is a form of allograft adipose matrix that helps in restoring volume. Cosmetic applications include nasolabial folds, cheeks, hand dorsum, and other areas. The procedure can be used in craniofacial and other reconstructive procedures for smoothing cellulite dimples and filling liposuction irregularities.
The treatment doesn’t require any downtime and can be performed in the doctor’s office. Renuva doesn’t require general anesthesia and eliminates the small volume fat requirement.
How Does Renuva Work?
Renuva gets replaced with the body’s fat once injected. The body repopulates the area with adipocytes for enhancing volume. Replacement volume largely depends on the injection and dilution. However, in most cases 50% of Renuva that is injected is replaced in volume. As per research performed on mice, the replaced volume is usually greater than the volume replaced during autologous fat.
You are ready to go when you open a box of Renuva as opposed to injecting fat harvested from other body parts. The procedure is efficient, simple, and cost-effective as compared to other procedures. The compound provides additional benefits in the form of improving skin elasticity, texture, and thickness in the treatment areas. This is because of the naturally occurring growth factors.
Renuva is mostly used on the buttocks and other areas, such as the hands and face. It works for filling liposuction divots that smooth out cellulite in combination with other procedures. The compound can be used in areas that lack volume because of genetics or aging. The injection technique is similar to fat grafting.
Advantages of Renuva
Renuva allogenic fat grafting is an off-shelf treatment, which is a major advantage. You don’t need to harvest fat in this procedure. Fat harvesting is invasive and requires recovery time. Many patients don’t possess enough fat for transplant, especially if large volume is required. Renuva makes it possible to restore volume with the patient’s own collagen and fat.
This is one of the reasons why Renuva offers longer lasting results. Fat cells are generally replaced every 10 years in the body. Dermal fillers don’t last for more than a year. Hence, volumizing an area with dermal fillers doesn’t provide persistent results.
Renuva growth factors remain in the injected area for a long time. Directly injected growth factors dissipate in any part of the body will dissipate rapidly. This doesn’t happen with Renuva.
