Is fat transfer to the face improved or better with blood stem cells?

Pro with fat

studies show that the combination of platelet rich plasma with fat transfer results in greater take of the fat grafts than just transferring the fat alone.

Fat Transfer, Final Results? TEMPLES / FACE

I find that PRP and sculptra help to maintain fat transfer results.  Ensure that you get the most gentle harvesting and that puregraft is used.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Facial Fat Transfer

All facial fat transfers have stem cells as part of the fat component. There is no FDA-approved process for adding extra stem cells to fat grafts and, even if there were, the  benefits to so doing have yet to be proven
