"We are very proud of this partnership with Puregraft®, a brand that has been at the cutting edge of technology in cell therapies," said Juan José Chacón Quirós, Chief Executive Officer of Establishment Labs. "Puregraft® autologous fat transfer has demonstrated long term natural tissue retention, and will enable advanced cell-and-implant hybrid aesthetic and reconstructive treatments in combination with our innovative line of Motiva Implants®. We believe that incorporating the latest technologies into breast aesthetics, breast reconstruction and body contouring will improve patient outcomes significantly and we are continuing to invest to bring an entirely new generation of products and therapies to market."

"We are delighted to work with Establishment Labs to advance the state of the art Plastic Surgery procedures," said Brad Conlan, CEO of Puregraft, LLC. "We are enthusiastic about the opportunities in the international market, and anticipate that hybrid procedures will become the new standard for breast augmentation, breast reconstruction and body contouring."
"There is a critical, unmet need in breast aesthetics and breast reconstruction surgery for consistent, reproducible treatments using silicone implants in combination with purified fat grafts in breast and body contouring. These are both best-of-breed companies in their respective fields," said Professor Marcos Sforza, one of the leading voices in combination techniques and advanced technologies in Plastic Surgery. "This partnership will provide surgeons with additional tools and elevate the standard of care for patients."
