Aesthetic Plast Surg. 2009 Sep;33(5):716-21. doi: 10.1007/s00266-009-9386-0. Epub 2009 Jul 9.


Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a platelet concentrate that has widely been used to accelerate the healing of soft and hard tissues. The preparation of PRP has been described by several authors. Preparation protocols vary from system to system, depending on the concentration of different integrating proteins. The objective of this article is to describe the principal use of PRP mixed with fat grafts in aesthetic plastic surgery.
