Renuva in East Greenwich, RI

What is Renuva® Fat Transfer?

Renuva® is an allograft adipose matrix, meaning it’s made with fat tissue collected and purified from a donor. The donated fat goes through a rigorous screening and preparation process so there’s no allergy test required— this means it’s safe for use in most people. Specially engineered for optimal integration with your body’s tissues, it comes with little downtime since there’s no need for a liposuction procedure.


With Renuva®, you can enjoy improved skin contours and reduced appearance of cellulite, dimples, and areas of low volume.


Candidates for Renuva® Fat Transfer

Patients who can benefit most from Renuva® are those who are looking for effective volume restoration without the need for surgery. Renuva® can be used in many different ways, including correcting scarring from previous procedures, small skin defects, cellulite, and restoring volume in the hands. During a consultation, Dr. Andrea Doyle will assess your goals and determine your best options with Renuva®.

What Conditions Does Renuva Fat Transfer Treat?

Renuva fat transfer is used to restore lost volume in sunken areas of the face and body. Renuva can be injected into the cheeks, hands, nasolabial folds, earlobes, and neck to achieve a more youthful look by restoring volume in these areas. It can also be an effective treatment for contour deficiencies such as hip dips, cellulitis, or deep scars. In addition, Renuva fat transfer also improves skin texture overall, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and loose skin.

What Are the Benefits of a Renuva Fat Transfer?

Renuva is the first treatment that can restore lost volume by using a patient’s own natural fat. Because of this, Renuva gives patients natural-looking, rejuvenating results that can reduce signs of aging and increase patient confidence. As a non-invasive treatment, Renuva is also a great option for patients unable to commit to the process and recovery of a traditional fat transfer surgical procedure. This reduces a patient’s recovery time significantly since there is no downtime required from a Renuva fat transfer procedure. Without the need for general anesthesia, this treatment also eliminates the risk of anesthesia complications.

Renuva® Fat Transfer Procedure

Renuva® only takes a few minutes versus a traditional fat transfer procedure. Dr. Doyle will carefully inject the adipose matrix into your specific treatment areas for natural-looking and subtle improvement.
