These days, many people who are looking to undergo plastic surgery want to keep it as natural as possible. Here at Shafer Plastic Surgery, New York plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer has seen countless patients who want to look and feel their best, but don’t want to undergo too drastic of a change.


Many of the surgeries that are in high demand tend to be focused on augmentation. Some patients are looking to undergo breast augmentation or buttocks enhancement, while others want to add more volume to their cheeks that has been lost with age. Fat transfer (fat grafting) is a very popular choice when treating augmentation surgery patients who want to stay away from implants. With fat transfer, fat cells are taken from the patient’s own body in an area such as the abdomen or thighs and then purified and transferred into the new area of choice.

The procedure is simple and safe, and an ideal choice for patients who worry about having a negative reaction to implants. The patient’s natural fat is used, so there are virtually no complications or risks associated with the treatment. And now, with the increasing demand for fat transfer treatments, one surgical product company is introducing a new, innovative device that will facilitate fat grafting procedures even more.

LifeCell, a leading regenerative medicine and tissue repair manufacturing company, has introduced the REVOLVE TM System, which offers an even faster and more efficient fat transfer treatment for cosmetic and reconstructive surgery procedures.

The groundbreaking REVOLVE TM System yields rapid and successful results by facilitating high-volume fat transfer procedures. The device processes up to 800ml lipoaspirate in less than 15 minutes, which reduces the time a patient spends in the operating room. It also allows for improved fat sterilization by filtering free oil, debris and other fluids from the fat cells with a specially designed mesh. The result is a stable and sterile fat deposits that will drastically reduce the chances of a syringe becoming clogged during the transfer procedure.

The REVOLVE TM System is the latest in fat transfer technology and will provide patients with optimal results they can enjoy for years to come. Developed by The GID Group, Inc., the device is now being marketed and sold by LifeCell Corporation.
