4 CME credits
Discounted pre-registration fee: $250 On-site fee: $300
Gordon Sasaki, MD
Level: Advanced                              Organization: Didactic
Desired outcomes:  

  • Review the latest information on biology of fat cells, adipose-derived stem cells, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for fat grafting
  • Discuss the current standards of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in regards to safety of devices and biologics (especially cell-based point-of-care therapies) 
  • Identify current point-of-care devices for harvesting cell-enriched fat, including isolation of adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs), using commercial collagenase enzymatic digestive system and commercial collagenase-free centrifuge systems, and current devices for isolating non-manipulated platelets at therapeutic levels of concentration   
  • Describe keys to optimize enhanced fat grafting using ADSC- and PRP-supplemented concentrations per unit fat volume, to understand critical ratios of volume of stem cells and PRP to volume of processed fat 
  • Analyze cadaveric and clinical assessment of deficient superficial (malar fat pad) and deep compartments (sub-orbicularis oculi muscle fat) to site-specific augmentation for a natural mid-face rejuvenation
