PRP treatment has is widely used in surgical procedures, including Plastic Surgery

Surgery

PRP has been proposed for several uses in form of after-treatment for various surgical procedures. The main reason for employment PRP preparation the promising regeneration capacities after the most invasive procedures as well as enhancement of results. The growth factors in PRP might accelerate epithelial wound healing, decrease tissue inflammation after surgery, improve the regeneration of bone and soft tissues, and promote tissue vascularization.

The ease with which these preparations are used might be helpful in many surgical procedures. The clinical use of platelet-rich plasma has been proposed as a way of obtaining high concentrations of growth factors involved in tissue healing and regeneration after the invasive surgical performance. It is used to promote the process of tissue repair, improving the quality of healing and healing time. The growth factors present in PRP are capable of forming a fibrin clot, promoting fibroblast proliferation and up-regulating collagen synthesis in the extracellular matrix.

In the case of surgical reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament, we can intraoperatively inject the PRP into the graft to accelerate and improve the healing process. In bones regeneration, it improves the process of natural healing by stimulating the capacity of bones restoration, as well as inheriting regenerating capacity while the of lack the ability to spontaneously heal appears.

Independently,  fat transplantation seem to have a role in regenerative medicine; however, the addition of PRP to fat transplants may synergistically enhance graft survival by a number of mechanisms.

The areas of PRP treatments and recommendations:

Reconstructive procedures

Muscle and bones regeneration

Tissue vascularization

Decreasing after surgery inflammation 

Tissue, cartilage regeneration 

Skin healing and reneval

Fat graft survival

Improving and accelerating the haling process

PLASTIC SURGERY

The wide range of applications of PRP has been noticed in use after plastic surgery procedures. The therapeutic strategy is to:

improve and accelerates tissue or bone healing

maintaining contour restoration

improves the maintenance and function of fat graft

Autologous fat grafting is used extensively in reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery for the correction of soft-tissue volume defects.

The areas of PRP treatments and recommendations:

Plastic surgery

Reconstructive procedures

Fat graft (stimulating the proliferation of adipose tissue stem cells)
