EPO Increases Fat Graft Survival Rates?

I saw a study that suggests enriching the fat graft with EPO increases fat graft survival rates and encourages adipogenisis. Have you used this process and if so are fat survival rates for transfer to breast higher than without?

To the best of my knowledge the only studies to date have been done in laboratory mice. You will probably need to wait  few years before any useful data in humans is available. All the best.
