Stem Cell Fat Grafting in Korea at Lydian

Fat grafting procedures at Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic provide clients with a natural sense of volume to sunken face lines, helping to enhance the dimensionality of one’s face and an overall balance similar to contour surgery. Results will lead to a more sophisticated face or body shape. Both our face and body fat grafting operations guarantee natural and aesthetic results.

 

Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic utilizes the most effective method of stem cell fat transplant. We collect excess fat from areas where it has accumulated, such as the abdomen and thighs. In essence, this procedure is ‘two birds with one stone’ by also improving your overall body shape. Clean, even, and high-quality fat is collected through a thick retrieval syringe and then implanted in layers, creating a smooth appearance without any unsightly bumps.

What is Stem Cell Fat Grafting

Stem-cell Fat Grafting

Fat grafting on the body creates a natural, voluminous shape. It results in smooth body lines that are complemented by removing unnecessary fat present in the abdomen or thighs. Since the patient’s own fat is used, the removed fat can be applied to nearly all areas of the body.

 

Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic focuses on stem cell fat grafting, also known as adipose-derived stem cell therapy or lipo-transfer with stem cells, which is a medical procedure that combines liposuction and stem cell therapy to increase the survival rate of fat cells and enhance the results of fat grafting or fat transfer procedures. Below are the most common areas that can benefit from stem cell fat grafting.

Buttocks

Thighs

Bumpy Skin

Dented Scar

Target Area: Face Fat Grafting

Our face fat grafting procedure creates a natural, voluminous appearance to upturned face lines, bringing out a three-dimensional effect of the face. The Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic fat grafting technique not only adds volume, but it also maintains an overall balance through movement, rearrangement, and injection. This operation is ideal for those looking to improve aging skin and wrinkles.

 

In addition to using fat from other areas of the body such as the abdomen and thighs, Lydian uses a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) fat grafting method. This is by the centrifugation of one’s own blood. This blood is mixed with pure fat and aids in creating density and high-quality results.

Equipment

Our fat grafting procedures incorporate a wide range of high-end equipment, of which some have been designed and created by Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic’s own Doctor An. Use of the following equipment varies depending on the type of fat grafting procedure selected by each patient.

Lydian Nanofat Transplantation: Rather than a commonly used thick cannula, Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic injects small fat particles through a thin cannula. This helps for a hidden injection as well as the use of smaller fatcells. By using a nanofat transplant device, we can achieve a high engraftment rate, as it is inserted into the skin layer by layer.

Lydian Fat Transplant Equipment: Lydian facial fat transplant is based on state-of-the-art equipment such as Piogen, Smart Prep, and centrifuge. We aim for safe surgery with years of rich experience and know-how.

Piogen: This is an adipose stem cell automated extraction equipment that increases the safety of the grafting procedure through an automated system. No genetic modification and high concentration of growth factors can be extracted as we utilize a high-tech SVF extraction system.

Smart Prep 2: This is state-of-the-art stem cell extraction equipment that removes stem cell growth factors from blood and bone marrow. Separation and extraction is automated with reduced cell damage. This is particularly useful in the treatment of failed cosmetic surgeries and diseases.

Smart Prep 2

Centrifuge: This device is used for the purpose of dividing the homogenate into several parts using centrifugal force. It is the most utilized machine to separate pure fat and in the production of PRP.

Centrifuge

Eva ll: This is the latest liposuction device and is safe enough to be used with only local anesthesia. Eva II results in less frequent bleeding during the procedure and a shorter treatment time. In addition, skin elasticity is increased after treatment.

Vaser: A vaser melts the upper layer of fat close to the epidermis. It makes natural inhalation possible, helping to build crisp six-pack abs through 3rd generation ultrasound. This device also induces collagen formation, helping to increase skin elasticity.

Liposaver: This is used for delicate liposuction procedures. It helps to create sophisticated body and muscle lines, resulting in an overall lifting effect. Liposaver melts fat grains through high-frequency energy while simultaneously absorbing them.

Preoperative Precise Analysis Smart Ultrasound Sonon: This ultrasound device carefully analyzes the patient’s condition before the surgery. We collect a thorough analysis of fat thickness and muscle level by region. which is essential in establishing an optimal surgical plan.

Benefits of Stem Cell Fat Grafting

How Does Stem Cell Fat Grafting Differ from Traditional Methods?

Stem cell fat grafting differs from conventional fat grafting procedures whereby only fat is transferred, as stem cells contain numerous growth factors. The anti-aging procedure can achieve a higher engraftment rate than the existing autologous fat transplantation. In addition, it can invigorate the body by directly resolving nutrient deficiencies that can promote aging and deal with various factors such as scars and effects of aging.

 

In addition, advocates of stem cell fat grafting argue that this advanced approach can result in higher graft retention, better integration with the surrounding tissues, and superior aesthetic results when compared to conventional fat grafting techniques.

For those partaking in a body fat grafting procedure, patients can expect an engraftment rate of 70 to 80%

 

02. Customized Solution

We simultaneously use liposuction and fat transplantation to create a more balanced tone to the face and body.

Benefits of Stem Cell Fat Grafting

01. Liposuction

– The procedure starts with liposuction, where adipose (fat) tissue is extracted from an area of your body such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks.
– This collected fat is then processed to rid it of impurities, excess fluids, and non-fat materials.

 

02. Isolation of Stem Cells

– Within the processed fat are fat cells, connective tissues, and a small number of stem cells.
– These stem cells are isolated using techniques like centrifugation or enzymatic digestion.

 

03. Stem Cell Enrichment

– The stem cells, once isolated, are often concentrated to bolster their quantity. This step is performed before they are reintegrated with the cleaned fat.

 

04. Integration with Fat Grafting

– The mixture of stem-cell-enhanced fat is injected into target areas needing volume or improved contour, such as the face, breasts, buttocks, or hands.
– The presence of stem cells is believed to help with tissue regeneration and enhance the blood supply, improving the survival rate of the transplanted fat cells.

 

05. Grafting Procedure

– The mixture of stem-cell-enhanced fat is injected into target areas needing volume or improved contour, such as the face, breasts, buttocks, or hands.
– The presence of stem cells is believed to help with tissue regeneration and enhance the blood supply, improving the survival rate of the transplanted fat cells.

 

06. Enjoy Your Result – Tissue Regeneration

 – The stem cells in the mixture have regenerative capabilities, which are thought to encourage the growth of new blood vessels, as well as aid in tissue healing and rejuvenation.
