Good news about fat.
Not only can you move fat from places you don’t want it to places you do—you can save it for the future.
Interesting! But why would I do this?
By creating your own repository of fat, it’s there to use when you choose to have a cosmetic procedure (facial rejuvenation, breast augmentation, etc.) or you require reconstructive surgery, wound care, etc.
Your fat and cells will be removed during an ordinary liposuction procedure (done alone or with other surgeries). This may be performed using local anesthesia so you don’t have to be “put under” which reduces procedure cost and is easier on you.
If you’ve undergone fat transfer, you know you must have liposuction each time to retrieve fat. However, when you preserve your fat you’ll only need to have liposuction once. Then, your fat is safely stored and ready for multiple uses in the future.
There’s nothing greener than recycling your self. You’ll avoid putting synthetic substances into your body, while ensuring synthetics are not being manufactured on your behalf.
You’ll be using your own fat/cells. No foreign substances or objects have to be introduced into your body.
No matter how old you are now, you are the youngest you’ll ever be. Preserving your tissue today means you’ll save your younger fat/cells to use when you are five, ten, or even twenty years older. Also, stem cells react better to stress the younger they are.
Because your cells will be stored in a state of suspended animation with cryopreservation, the potency is maintained through the years.
In the long run, using your own fat/cells offers longer-lasting results, reducing the amount of filler and injections needed, and eliminating multiple liposuction procedures.
It’s the future.
While there are plenty of uses for fat and stem/regenerative cells now, the future looks incredible for the vast realm of possible treatments. Truly, saving your cells has the potential of one day saving your life.
Did you say, “stem cells”?
Yes. While you’ve heard of stem cells in bone marrow and embryos, you may not realize stem cells are in your fat. Actually, fat has the highest concentration of stem and regenerative cells – containing 500 times the amount found in bone marrow.
How much does it cost?
Each person requires procedures/services tailored to his or her physical needs and goals. Please consult with Dr. Accetta and his staff for the package that is right for you. (Pricing for fat processing and one year of storage often begins around $1,699.)
What do I have to do?
Just Let Dr. Accetta know you’d like to preserve your cells. Then you’ll complete the paperwork, make payment and undergo a liposuction procedure—your doctor and BioLife take care of the rest.
