    Hello all

    Lately much has been discussed about treatment options for fat pad atrophy, such as the use of silicone injections or dermal fillers.
    But recently I learned about a technique which applies a human cellular dermal allograft called GRAFTJACKET ® Regenerative Tissue Matrix from the Wright Medical Technology company.

    I found this technique very interesting because although I use in my practice silicone injections for the treatment of various diseases from calluses to fat pad atrophy I am aware that these injections have a degree of risk especially migration of the product, this procedure with human dermal allograft appears to be safer, although it requires a surgical intervention to apply it, as the injections can be performed in the office.

    Hope this will start an interesting debate!

    Cheers
