Fat grafting is often performed for cosmetic and reconstructive needs to areas all over the body. Fat grafting to the breasts accounts for $68 million and the face $126 million according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Procedural Statistics. For small volume fat grafting, the standard procedures are messy, time consuming, and require assistance. Push-to-Spin Syringe is a novel device to make small volume fat grafting more efficient, clean, and profitable. It will allow aspiration of fat, centrifugation, and re-injection back into a patient thus avoiding contamination, saving cost on surgical equipment, and increasing practice productivity.
