Lipo Transfer

This is the use of your own fat taken from one area and reinjected into facial lines and wrinkles after preparation. This organic natural filler has the longest lasting result due to the partial permanent ingrowth of a percentage of the fat cells at the injection site. There is new research currently being performed on the role of ADASC( Adipose Derived Adult Stem Cells) in these long lasting results. They are present in high concentrations in abdominal adipose tissue routinely used in LipoTransfer. The effect these ADASC have on new vascular growth and therefore oxygen support of the fat cell is what is felt to provide such longevity to the natural results. The adipose tissue is harvested by tumnescent anesthesia liposuction. The fat is processed in the surgery suite and then immediately injected. Often only mild oral sedatives and local anesthesia injections are needed. The recovery is rapid with return to normal daily activity the next day except for strenuous exercise or heavy lifting. Ice compresses aid in the prevention of bruising which is generally no more than for artificial filler injections. Discomfort usually requires nothing more than Tylenol.
