Does The Resolve System Produce The Longest Lasting Results In Injectable Fat Grafting?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m interested in breast augmentation and a few other procedures. I’ve done some research and it seems as if the Revolve system provides the longest lasting results. Is that something you do??

A: There are numerous specific systems and many ‘by hand’ fat preparation methods for concentrating fat for injection. Resolve is one of the commercial preparation systems and I have used it many times. There is no real prospective data on any of these preparation methods as determining fat graft survival is a multifactorial issue of which preparation is just one variable. So to say Resolve produces the longest lasting results in fat grafting is not clinical data that would be supported by most plastic surgeons.

Any time there are dozens of different ways to do the same thing, with many vocal proponents that their way is the best, that is a sure sign that there is no one best proven way to do it. Nowhere is this more evident in plastic that with injectable fat grafting.
