Renuva® Allograft Adipose Matrix Highlighted at Plastic Surgery The Meeting ​

Groundbreaking all-natural fat-grafting alternative to be featured at gathering of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons

Edison, N.J. (September 27, 2018) – Renuva® Allograft Adipose Matrix, a pioneering alternative to fat grafting created by MTF Biologics, will be a featured innovation at Plastic Surgery The Meeting, September 28-October 1, 2018, at McCormick Place West in Chicago, Ill. Made from donated human fat, Renuva treats small volume soft tissue defects in the face, breast and body, while eliminating the need for liposuction. It will be featured in three industry programs: “Innovations in Industry,” “Hot Topics,” and “ASPS Greatest Hits.”

Renuva maintains volume in patients and allows for host fat creation. Renuva provides patients with a natural treatment and easier recovery to fat transfer. The injection does not require general anesthesia and can be performed in a doctor's office.
