Many doctors often ask “What’s the difference between tSVF & cSVF?”. While the two sound similar, there are several key differences.
tSVF → tissue SVF, the “lipoaspirant”, unprocessed total complex that includes the adipocytes themselves (the fat), blood vessels, etc.
- Includes all cellular and biological components of the tissue
- It has a bioactive matrix (an extracellular matrix aka a scaffolding)
- Requires no manipulation to be used but it can be manipulated to make particle size smaller and grafts more effective
- Can be found in ALL ATC deposits throughout the body and can be harvested & then used up by the microenvironment that has been degenerating/aging
- Once harvested and reintroduced to target site, the cells will reinforce the cells that are already in the site
- Individual cells are less effective than the complex itself → the tSVF is critical
cSVF → cellular SVF
- Requires digestion, incubation, and isolation process to create a “pellet”
- This pellet can then be given via IV or given back to the adipose tissue complex
- Does not have a matrix
- Commonly used in research settings and in “cell-enrichment” protocols
