The lipogem system is used to liposuction fat cells from the patients thigh or abdomen. The device then rinses and cleans the oils and blood from the patients harvested fat and maintains the unique regenerative properties of the fa ttissue, such as stem cells. The stem cells are then injected into the injured site and can promote healing and symptom reduction as early as three weeks after treatment.
Lipogems technology can be used in orthopedic medicine to assist in healing of tissue. The procedure is typically same day in clinic.
