Stem Cell Therapy in Korea at Lydian

Although most of us have heard of stem cell, what is Stem Cell Therapy and what makes it different from regular liposuction?


Stem Cell therapy is a medical treatment that uses stem cells to promote the repair and regeneration of damaged tissues in the body. During the procedure, stem cells are harvested from the patient’s own body, cultured, and injected into the target area, where they can promote the growth of new tissue and blood vessels, and help to repair and regenerate damaged cells.


It is also important to note that stem cell therapy is still a relatively new area of research, so it is crucial to consult with a qualified and experienced medical professional who can help you understand the risks and benefits of the procedure, and guide you through the process, and guide you through the process while pursuing a great result with long-term safety and effectiveness.

What is Stem Cell?


What is Stem Cell?

Cells are the basic component of our body, and various cells exist in our body. After a certain period of time, cells die and new cells are created again.

These cells are born through the differentiation of stem cells that have the ability to differentiate into specific tissue cells. Stem cells have the ability to help regenerate damaged tissue or cells and proliferate indefinitely.


Type of Stem Cell

Stem cells can be classified into three main categories: embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, and adult stem cells. Among them, adult stem cells licensed in Korea and used for therapeutic purposes can be differentiated into specific tissues in the body such as bones and organs, and can be extracted from bone marrow, adipose tissue, umbilical cord blood, and peripheral blood.

Adult Stem Cell serves to supply new cells to replace dead cells by external shocks or aging.

                              How Can I Tell The Difference?                              

Stem cell therapy is a promising treatment for a variety of diseases and conditions. One way to determine if stem cell therapy is effective is by measuring the activity level of natural killer (NK) cells before and after treatment. NK cells are cells that are part of our natural defense system and play an important role in controlling tumors and infections.


To understand how stem cell therapy affects NK cell activity, it’s important to note that not all NK cells have the ability to fight abnormal cells like cancer cells. Some NK cells lack this ability. Therefore, it’s the activity level of the NK cells that matters rather than the number of cells.

By monitoring NK cell activity before and after stem cell therapy, we can assess whether the treatment has improved the patient’s immune system. This information can help doctors determine the effectiveness of the treatment and make adjustments as needed. Overall, measuring NK cell activity is an important way to evaluate the effectiveness of stem cell therapy and ensure that patients are receiving the best possible care.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Stem Cell therapy is a medical treatment that uses stem cells to promote the repair and regeneration of damaged tissues in the body. During the procedure, stem cells are harvested from the patient’s own body, cultured, and injected into the target area, where they can promote the growth of new tissue and blood vessels, and help to repair and regenerate damaged cells.

Where should I get Stem Cell?

Stem cells can be obtained from a variety of sources, with fat cells and bone marrow being particularly popular options. If you’re considering liposuction, you could collect your own stem cells from the extracted fat.

How can I use stem cells?

Stem cells can be utilized in various procedures, such as fat grafting, Brazilian Butt Lift, scar revision treatment, breast augmentation, and even skin regeneration. In addition to using stem cells in cosmetic procedures, they can also be injected into the bloodstream, where they can naturally migrate to areas in need of cell regeneration or differentiation, a process known as the Homing Effect in the medical field.

Why Stem Cell Therapy is so expensive?

As a liposuction clinic with experience in extracting stem cells from fat cells, we can tell you that the equipment required for this process is expensive and not widely available, only limited number of doctors have access to them, creating a high entry threshold. Furthermore, due to the meticulous care required during the extraction process, the cost of stem cell extraction is comparable to that of bespoke tailoring or handmade goods. As a result, only a limited number of people have access to these machines.
