Every tissue in your body is constantly repairing itself. Adipose tissue (fat) has been widely studied in literature and is known to have an innate healing potential. The use of fat was documented during World War I to aid in the healing of soldiers’ battle wounds.1 Since then, a large body of research has shown a variety of promising applications for fat in healing and regenerating damaged tissues.

What is Lipogems?
Lipogems is a cutting edge technology that gently processes and uses your body’s own fat tissue to cushion and support areas of injury or damage as your body heals itself. The fat is taken from the stomach, “love handles” or thigh areas using a local anesthetic to numb the area. Lipogems uses an FDA approved device that rinses and cleans the inflammatory oils and blood from the patient’s harvested fat and keeps the natural and beneficial properties of the fat tissue. This harvested fat is then precisely injected into the patient’s injured areas with the use of ultrasound guidance. Lipogems tends to stay in the area where it is injected instead of being reabsorbed by the body,4 allowing your body to maximize the benefits of Lipogems for an extended period of time. The Lipogems procedure can be performed in under one hour in an outpatient clinical setting or may be used in addition to your surgery to support your body in the reconstructing and repairing damaged or injured tissue. Lipogems has now been used in more than 8,000 clinical cases globally.
