Renuva Filler


In an ever-changing landscape of new ideas and innovations, cosmetic enhancements continue to push the boundaries of what is possible. One new breakthrough in Plastic Surgery is Renuva. This cutting-edge technology offers a natural, long-lasting solution to volume loss in various areas of the body. With the use of this technology, patients and practitioners can transform their approach to cosmetic procedures.

What is Renuva?

Renuva is an allograft adipose matrix regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). An allograft is a transplant of an organ, cell, or tissue from one individual to another. Essentially, this product is an injectable dermal filler composed of purified fat used to restore volume loss throughout the body. Unlike traditional fillers that require repeat treatments, Renuva offers a more permanent solution by gradually replacing age related fat loss with your own body fat.

How does Renuva Work?

The Renuva material contains the same proteins, collagen and growth factors as your own fat. Over time following the injection, your body gets rid of this matrix and replaces it with your own fat to increase volume and fullness to the area. This form of volume replacement does not require harvesting of one’s own fat through the process of liposuction.

Benefits of Renuva

Renuva works well for small-volume fat grafting to areas of the body such as the hands, face, neck, decolletage, and breast. Before and after photos featuring these areas of the body can be found here. The use of Renuva in these areas can give a natural-looking enhancement that does not appear to be overdone or artificial. Unlike hyaluronic acid filler that gradually dissolves over time, Renuva provides lasting results by replacing the allograph adipose matrix with your own fat. The procedure to inject Renuva is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime as well. Overall, there are numerous benefits to consider Renuva for enhancing volume loss.


Renuva is a safe and effective treatment for volume loss in various parts of the body. With its proven efficacy, minimal downtime, and versatility it is shaping the future of cosmetic enhancements in Plastic Surgery.
