Miami, FL board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso now offers his patients platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections at his office. Using PRP taken from the patient's own blood (red and white cells plus platelets), it is applied via injection to joints with acute or chronic injuries. The growth factors in the blood are proteins that can help heal injuries more quickly. If you would like to learn more about how Dr. LaGrasso can apply PRP to your joints so that it can help repair an injury or decrease inflammation in your joints, call and schedule a consultation with him at your earliest convenience.

"Surgery with Doctor Lagrasso - Miami, FL - I have been wanting to do this procedure for a while. I had shape, but wanted my waist to be smaller and much more defined. I was really unhappy with how I looked and this seemed like a great alternative. After searching through several doctors, I decided to go with Dr. Lagrasso. His bed side manner is truly impeccable, he is patient, professional, and super detailed. I could not be happier with my choice. Today was my surgery, and even though I'm super swollen, bruised, and in ridiculous amounts of pain, I can already see the conturing in my body's shape. I am very hopeful that once the swelling goes down, my body will look like I always dreamed it to. I am staying in the recovery home of Miriam landford, and honestly, I don't know what I would do without her. She has tended lovingly to every single one of my needs. From making me delicious healthy fresh foods to help me gain my strength again, to keeping me warm, comfortable, as well as managing my medications as well. Her house is quiet, peaceful, relaxing, immaculately clean, and beautiful. I couldn't be happier with my choices. Now just waiting for the pain and swelling to go away :("- K. / RealSelf / Oct 17, 2016
A small amount of blood will be taken from the patient and prepared into a PRP serum through centrifugation, and it will separate the platelets from other blood cells. Once the PRP is made, it can be injected into the site of the injury. This process can take a few hours to complete.
Patients may have mild redness in the treated area for up to 5 days. Some patients may notice other mild reactions, including burning, tightness, and skin flaking. Patients will be able to resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment, but heavy activity and exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours.

WHERE CAN I HAVE PRP?
We use PRP injections in the joints to help with regeneration with the additional concentration of growth factors placed at the site of inflammation or injury.
DO I HAVE TO HAVE SURGERY?
No. We provide PRP for patients even if they have not had surgery on the injured area. Keep in mind, we can also use PRP for patients after they have had surgery on a joint to aid in the healing process.
The best candidates for PRP are patients that have tried other medications, physical therapy, surgery and other methods of recovering from sprains, injuries, and chronic conditions. These patients may want to try PRP to heal the area more quickly and improve their health.
