The Lipogems procedure is an innovative adipose tissue technology that is designed to harvest, concentrate and transfer a patient’s very own adipose-derived stem cells in order to accelerate healing and regenerate damaged tissue. The fat is collected from your midsection or “love handle” area.
What is the Lipogems Procedure?
Lipogems is simple, minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in Badia Hand to Shoulder center in approximately an hour or can be added to your arthroscopic surgery, if you’re scheduled to have one and Dr. Badia considers it appropriate.
The system unlocks your own fat’s natural ability to support healing of injured or damaged tissues. Using pure simple saline, it rinses and cleans—screens out the contaminants such as oils and blood from the your own (or “harvested”) fat,” shared Dr. Badia while highlighting the treatment for injury repair.
