Dr. Carlos Mata offers a noninvasive procedure called platelet rich plasma, which is used to mainly treat athletes and other patients who have tendon injuries. Using their own blood, these men and women will rebuild their damaged tendons by jumpstarting the healing process with their own growth factors. The blood is used to generate a higher platelet concentration, which is then injected to facilitate healing of ligaments, joints, tendons, and other musculoskeletal problems. In plastic surgery, Dr. Mata can also use this procedure to activate platelets injected into abnormal tissues or scars to release growth factors which increase the production of reparative cells. If you would like to learn more at platelet rich plasma treatments, please call and schedule your consultation.
"I had two procedures done earlier this year by Dr. Mata. The tummy tuck was in January 2016 and following after in February, thigh lift. After working out so many years, it was the excess skin and fat I had removed. For all my future procedures and for friends and family, I definitely recommend Dr. Mata. Growing up with physicians in my family ( my mother was a Pediatrician), he has a wonderful disposition very reminiscent of the days when doctors cared and took all the time you needed to address concerns. Dr. Mata also made sure I was mentally prepared for the procedures and was 100% transparent with what I can expect. It's not a form of weight loss, but body sculpting. He has a very nurturing way about him as well. My healing experience has been the most positive under his care and the care of the staff. You are given written directions and the nurses will answer any questions you have. After the procedures, of course, new clothes feel great in smaller sizes, but it's not seeing the unwanted skin and fat, always getting larger sizes to disguise my trouble spots that brings me happiness. I have no regrets. I highly recommend Dr. Mata and I'm so grateful. My arms are next! :-)"- L.N. / Google / Jul 06, 2016

Dr. Mata will want to schedule a consultation for PRP treatments to see if you are an ideal candidate. Many men or women, who seek PRP treatments, are patients with tendon injuries or are experiencing acute pain. Dr. Mata will discuss all of your treatment options at your consultation.
What To Expect
Your PRP procedure will probably take a couple of hours to complete. The process is immediate, and your healing should only take a few hours (with a maximum of one day). After your initial improvements within the first few weeks, the procedure will show a 95% efficacy rate, and up to 3 injections are made in the time span of 6 months.
