Objectives: To evaluate the interest of growth factors adjonction during lipostructure. Materials and methods: Between May 2005 and June 2012, 232 patients benefited from this modern approach of lipostructure with concentrate of platelets. The technique evolves on the simplification way. Results: All the patients were satisfied with the result with minimal associated resorptions. No massive resorption requiring a resumption of lipostructure was noted. Conclusion: By offering a matricial support to angiogenesis and by stimulating the proliferation of pre-adipocytes, the PRF could have a beneficial role on the cicatrization and the consolidation of an adipocyte graft.
