Autologous Fat Transfer/ Fat Grafting Q & A

What is autologous fat transfer/fat grafting?

Autologous fat transfer and fat grafting are two names for the same cosmetic procedure. Fat grafting augments the size and shape of your breasts and buttocks using your own fat rather than silicone implants.

What happens during fat grafting?

During a fat grafting procedure, the doctors at Tangchitnob MD remove fat from the targeted areas of your body using the cutting-edge LipoLife system. The LipoLife first injects a tumescent solution that eliminates pain and stops bleeding.

Then your doctor inserts a specialized cannula (a long, narrow tube) under your skin. The cannula emits a laser that gently turns fat cells into a semi-liquid state while simultaneously suctioning the cells out of your body.

Turning the fat into a semi-liquid is vital for two reasons: It makes fat removal easier and the fat can be used immediately for your fat grafting injection. The LipoLife procedure ensures that 95% of the fat cells stay alive, which is essential when they’re grafted back into your body.

For the next step, your doctor at Tangchitnob MD injects the fat cells into your breasts or buttocks. Over the next few months, the fat cells rebuild a blood supply, becoming a permanent, living tissue that maintains your new shape.

How is autologous fat used for body-wide rejuvenation?

The doctors at Tangchitnob MD also use autologous fat or fat that’s obtained from your own body, to rejuvenate your face and hands, restore health to vaginal tissues, and treat hair loss.

Autologous fat rejuvenation is possible because your body fat is a rich source of adult stem cells. Adult stem cells continuously divide and regenerate new cells that develop into many types of tissues, such as collagen, skin, muscle, fat, and blood vessels.

After using the same LipoLife process to remove fat from your body, your doctor at Tangchitnob MD uses the innovative ALMI™ procedure to separate stem cells from the fat and inject them into areas needing healing and rejuvenation.

What concerns are treated with the ALMI procedure?

The ALMI procedure rejuvenates your face and hands by:

  • Diminishing lines and wrinkles
  • Healing damaged skin
  • Restoring texture and tone
  • Improving your skin’s strength and elasticity
  • Augmenting your lips and cheeks

The ALMI FemShot treats vaginal atrophy, a condition that often occurs after menopause, causing symptoms such as vaginal dryness, loss of vaginal elasticity, and painful intercourse. An injection of stem cells treats these symptoms by triggering collagen production.

ALMI also effectively treats hair loss by mixing stem cells with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that’s made from your blood. The mixture is injected into balding areas of your scalp, where it regenerates hair follicles, stimulates new hair growth, and improves hair thickness.
