SAN DIEGO, May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Puregraft LLC is pleased to announce the publication of an independent clinical study utilizing Puregraft technology to naturally improve breast size and shape1.
In this prospective study by lead author Professor Marcos Sforza (United Kingdom) and his co-workers, 26 patients underwent fat transfer to the breast, using Puregraft, to correct asymmetries and deformities following breast augmentation surgery.
The authors transferred an average of 280 cc of Puregraft processed fat per procedure and measured the percent of fat remaining 1-year after injection using 3-dimensional imaging software. Dr. Sforza and colleagues reported that an average of 72% of implanted fat remained 1-year post-operatively and patients reported a satisfaction rate of "excellent" in 83% of cases. The authors concluded that fat transplanted to the breast utilizing Puregraft technology was both predictable and reproducible.
According to Dr. Sforza, "Our work demonstrates that new technology can now make larger breasts using your own fat in a predictable and efficient way." Added Dr. Sforza, "fat transfer in breast enlargement surgery is the future and how you treat the fat, in my mind, plays a role in achieving excellent results for patients."
