For over 20 years, bone marrow has been used in all stem cell treatments, but for the last 8 years, fat tissue has been an increasing alternative source due to its numerous advantages. Today, Cell-Enriched Cosmetic Surgery utilises the patient’s own fat and fat-derived stem and regenerative cells to regenerate the face. As the fat and cells used are extracted from the patient’s own body, there is no risk of rejection and the results look and feel very natural.
Patients seeking a natural way to rejuvenate their faces after changes due to ageing are the right candidates for this treatment. However, as the fat used in the procedure is harvested from the patient’s body, an adequate supply of excess fat is required. Dr Tiryaki will discuss how and where the fat can be harvested with you during your consultation.
To harvest the fat, a mini-liposuction under local anaesthesia is given and Dr Tiryaki will be able to explain the ideal areas for removal for your body. The normal areas of focus are the stomach, hips or thighs and the whole process, including the isolation process and transfer, will usually take around one hour depending on the areas to be treated.
Why choose Cell-Enriched Facial Rejuvenation?
Traditional alternatives to this procedure include implants, injectable fillers and lipofilling (also known as fat grafting).
Cell-Enriched Cosmetic Surgery produces the same outcome as these more established treatments, but with certain key benefits including:
+ Fat derived stem cells are biocompatible, easily available and accessible
+ Fat-derived stem cell treatments produce natural-looking, aesthetically pleasing results
+ There is no risk of rejection as the product is autologous
+ Stem cell treatment on the face remove fine lines that form over time due to decreasing collagen and elastin fibres
+ Might combine two aesthetically enhancing procedures in one treatment, liposuction plus soft tissue enhancement
+ Cell-Enriched Fat produces longer lasting more durable outcomes, avoiding repeat procedures required with traditional alternatives
