Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is one of the “Biologicals” that has been recently adapted for facial rejuvenation. It has also been used extensively in plastic surgery, orthopedic surgery and oral surgery. It was first developed in the 1970s and reported in clinical use in open heart surgery in Italy in 1987.

About the Procedure

PRP is a concentrate derived from whole blood.  It has a greater concentration of growth factors than whole blood.  For preparation of PRP, various protocols are used, with an underlying principle of concentrating platelets to 3–5 times physiological levels.  Although not a panacea for every problem, platelet-rich plasma has been shown to be helpful for:

  • Improving deep nasolabial folds
  • Lessening hair loss in androgenic alopecia and female pattern alopecia
  • Improving the retention and efficacy of fat transfer
  • Improving rhytids (fine lines) and wrinkles
  • Equally important – to date, there are no credible studies that have demonstrated adverse effects of PRP

At Fedok Plastic Surgery, PRP has been and is only prepared exclusively from the patient’s own blood using up-to-date, professional, sterile and clinically standardized techniques and equipment.  Such attention to detail optimizes your safety and consistency of results.
