n our minimally invasive, point-of-care procedure, your physician
will make a tiny puncture through your skin and take a small section of
fat from either your midsection or “love handles.”
Next, your collected fat will be processed in the special „Lipogems“
device using sterile saline solution. This occurs through a very gentle
process called micro-fragmentation, during which your fat is washed,
rinsed, and resized into smaller clusters while maintaining the natural
beneficial properties of your fat. Impurities in your fat such as blood,
cell debris, and oils are removed as the desirable remainder of your
fat is concentrated.Your physician then will use a small needle to
inject the microfragmented tissue into the treatment site.
The simplicity of the procedure means that it requires only local
anesthesia (you won’t have to be put to sleep) and can be performed in
approximately one hour in an outpatient facility .There is minimal
recovery time from the Lipogems procedure.
As with all procedures, the Individual results may vary. The lifetime
of any procedure is limited and depends on several factors like patient
weight and activity level. Your doctor will counsel you about
strategies for your post-procedural care. It is important to closely
follow your physician’s instructions regarding post-procedure activity,
treatment and follow-up care.
More than 25,000 Lipogems procedures have been performed worldwide,
and your physician can speak with you about the possible outcomes
associated with this procedure. Your own powerful fat has 100-500x more
reparative cells than other similar therapies. Lipogems is the only
technology that is FDA cleared for use in orthopaedics.
