Fat grafting is being touted as the future of a fresher less tired-looking face and plumper hands. But does it measure up? Viola Levy asks the experts.

One such new method is Uvence, created by body contouring expert and plastic surgeon Olivier Amar. It extracts certain cells from the suctioned fat, called adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells. This ‘super enriched tissue’ is then frozen and stored in a special cryo chamber for up to five years. Whenever the patient needs a top-op, their practitioner can call in the cells from Uvence, which it delivers to their offices in a syringe.
