Lipogems is a game changing regenerative medicine therapy that can be used to treat a wide range of orthopaedic conditions.
It is a very simple procedure. The entire process is carried out in just one surgical step. Fat tissue is taken from your own body and transformed into an injectable substance that has unique and remarkable healing properties. The procedure is minimally invasive and transplanting your own cells eliminates the risk of rejection.
The procedure itself only takes around 90 minutes. The area of fat tissue is injected with anesthetic and saline, and then the tissue is extracted. The fat is then subjected to the Lipogems process – which takes around 20 minutes – to turn it into an injectable substance. This substance is then administered into the areas that requires healing.
Is it safe?
The Lipogems method is incredibly safe. The fat tissue we extract is immersed in a saline solution, which means we minimize any trauma to the cells. In addition, residues that promote inflammation are removed from the cells to help ensure quick and easy recovery.
Your fat tissue contains a high volume of MSC (Medicinal Signaling Cells), and when activated after local injury, establish a regenerative microenvironment by secreting bioactive molecules which regulates the local immune response, and in addition supports and encourages your body to heal.
