Paramus Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Paul M. Parker, Encourages The Use Of Fat Grafting To Treat Scars

The staff members at the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery employ fat grafting techniques to treat patients with painful scars resulting from burns, injuries, and plastic surgery.

Online PR News – 01-November-2013 – Paramus, NJ – Dr. Paul M. Parker and the associates at the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery in New Jersey are enthusiastic about the aesthetic and functional improvements that fat grafting treatments have been able to afford plastic surgery patients suffering with abnormal and hardened areas of scar tissue. The injection of autologous fat tissue under the skin around scars has led to increased mobility and skin elasticity. Patients also report a significant decrease in pain felt at the site of the scar.

The fat grafting procedure begins with liposuction to collect a small amount of the patient’s own fat tissue, often removed from the abdomen or hip area. The fat is then processed and reinserted into the body at the site of the scar. The goal is to have the healthy tissues surround the area of damaged skin and provide a network of support. Within weeks of treatment, the scarred areas feel softer to the touch, and patients have improved mobility where they previously felt constriction. Further improvements to the area continue to be seen for many months afterward.

“It is remarkable to see how the human body can heal itself. This technique will prove to be quite promising as a solution for people who live with large, painful scars after complicated surgeries,” explains Dr. Paul M. Parker, founder and medical director of the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery.
