Next Generation Fat Grafting

The World’s First On-Site Liquid Gold™ Cytori StemSource® Mini-lipobank

The Bougainvillea Clinique is the first plastic surgery facility in the U.S. to offer Liquid Gold™ lipobanking and one of the few U.S. facilities with the Cytori StemSource® device for separation of adult stem and regenerative cells from fat.

Rather than using a large amount of body fat for grafting in a single procedure, the Liquid Gold™ banking approach allows us to harvest a quantity of your fatty tissue once, using an advanced liposuction procedure. Your fat can be stored and retrieved when needed in smaller amounts, and grafted with simple injection procedures. The benefits of this approach are:

  • Faster recovery with less swelling, lumpiness, and trauma than conventional high volume approaches to fat grafting
  • A more controlled and finessed approach due to easy access to ADRC-rich fatty material for added volume enhancements and touch-ups over time

lipobanking is the Key

Using a technologically advanced cryogenic freezing process, your fat is “banked” for future use in syringe-sized parcels at the Adrecyte Regenerative Medicine and Surgery Center adjacent to the Bougainvillea Clinique. Making your fat readily available for future procedures means the Liquid Gold™ approach is ideal for:

  • Staged breast enlargement or reconstruction
  • Repeat procedures for facial or hand enhancement and other fat grafting procedures

Perfecting an Established Technique

Fat grafting has been part of plastic surgery for over 100 years because body fat has long been considered the best and most natural filler for a wide range of procedures. However, fat harvesting and grafting technologies in the past were not sufficiently advanced to ensure a high percentage of fat graft “takes.” Fortunately fat harvesting using gentle liposuction techniques, and grafting technologies using fat purification and precise micro-grafting procedures, have become very sophisticated over the past 10 years. This has led to a significant improvement in the percentage of graft “takes.” Ultimately, your fat is natural and it is yours. It’s not a product, and it’s free.

Harvesting Fat for Use Now…and Later

Until the Liquid Gold™ approach, banking harvested fat has been prohibitively expensive or impractical. As a result, unused fat from a liposuction procedure would be thrown away. Thus, fat would need to be harvested every time a procedure was required. Not only does Liquid Gold™ use the most advanced, state-of-the art fat harvesting and grafting techniques, it makes lipobanking a practical and affordable reality. And since Liquid Gold™ enables you to store your ADRC rich fatty tissue indefinitely, stem and regenerative cells may also be used in the future for other potentially lifesaving situations now being studied, such as in the treatment of heart attacks.
