Frustrated by the progressive, age-related loss of volume that has resulted in some body areas, combined with excess fatty tissue in other areas? Then a stem cell ‘makeover’ may represent the perfect solution for you.
Stem cells are naturally-occurring cells in our bodies that are considered ‘pluripotential.’ That is, they have the potential to develop into a wide a variety of different tissue types, depending on the cellular environment into which they’re introduced. This is achieved by gently removing fat cells from one area of the body by liposuction. These cells are then processed using a centrifuge, thereby concentrating the stem cells. These stem cell enriched fat cells can then be reintroduced into other body areas where they are deficient, including, most commonly, the face, hands, breast or buttocks, restoring volume and rejuvenating areas from which volume has been lost.
Performed under intravenous sedation (i.e. “twilight” anesthesia) in a State Licensed, Nationally Accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (see ‘about Keystone Surgery Center’), stem cell makeovers are variable in length and depend on the extent and number of areas being treated. Patients are able to return home immediately afterwards and are able to resume work and comfortably engage in social situations in about 2 to 3 days.
When considering stem cell makeovers or indeed, any cosmetic procedure, be sure to select a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).
