Biologics, a leading nonprofit tissue bank dedicated to healing and
saving lives, will feature its extensive cosmetic surgery portfolio at
this year’s Symposium
for Cosmetic Advances & Laser Education (SCALE) 2019, May 9-11,
2019, at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
Highlighted among the innovations will be Renuva
Allograft Adipose Matrix, which MTF Biologics created to easily
treat small volume soft tissue defects in the face, breast and body. An
alternative to fat grafting, Renuva is made from donated human adipose,
or fat. Produced from the highest quality tissue, Renuva gives patients
the same benefits as fat grafting without the need for liposuction.
Dr. Michael Gold, Nashville dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon, will
present on Renuva at the main podium at SCALE at 2:15 CT on Friday, May
MTF Biologics also will feature Renuva in an e-poster presentation
“Injectable Allograft Adipose Matrix: a Natural Off-the-Shelf
Alternative for Soft Tissue Filling.” by Evangelia Chnari, PhD.
In addition to Renuva, MTF Biologics will showcase the following
Profile®: A pre-cut, costal cartilage allograft, Profile is
used in rhinoplasty procedures. It allows surgeons to avoid having to
perform additional surgery to obtain cartilage from a patient’s ear or
rib, leading to less post-operative pain and scarring. Because Profile
is made from human tissue, it is natural to the patient’s own body,
which means less chance of infection or extrusion than synthetic
LipoGrafter®: LipoGrafter is a practical, fat-grafting solution
designed for better graft survival. The easy-to-use technology offers
surgeons a safe and efficient way to harvest a patient’s fat and
deposit it in areas where the patient may require or seek additional
Meso BioMatrix® Surgical Mesh: Meso BioMatrix Surgical Mesh is
a strong, thin, xenograft tissue form for cosmetic, plastic and
reconstructive surgery that offers surgeons a new option for patients
requiring soft tissue repair and/or reinforcement such as suture line
reinforcement and muscle flap reinforcement.
