The Next-Generation Device used to separate stem cells and regenerative cells from a patient's fat has been approved by European regulators.
Technological advances in fat grafting can use the patient's own fat to naturally enhance the breasts.
Aesthetic physicians are finding a use for this new system used in Europe and Asia to harvest stem cells from fat.
A new system for processing fat helps ensure a long lasting and beautiful fat transfer result.
Interim results of a five year study on Artefill indicate that patients are, for the most part, satisfied with their treatment outcome and very few adverse events have been reported.
Study Will Evaluate Safety and Effectiveness of Contour Plus™ Device
This newly published study evaluated five different PMMA products available over the past several years in the U.S. (one product), Europe (one product), Brazil (two products) and Canada (one product) for PMMA microsphere size and morphology using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) techniques. Each of the five products was evaluated with respect to PMMA microsphere size, homogeneity and surface characteristics. Results from the comparison show marked differences with respect to PMMA microsphere size and morphology. Products obtained from various markets outside the U.S. over time contained variable PMMA particle sizes with shape and surface irregularities, whereas the U.S. product, ArteFill, demonstrated round, smooth, uniformly sized particles.
