Lipogems is a regenerative medical procedure that utilizes the power of highly specialized cells found in our body’s fat (“Adipose tissue”).
These cells are capable of healing areas of the body that have suffered injuries and is applicable to multiple organ systems in the body, such as musculoskeletal, neurologic, urologic, gynecologic just to name a few!
Not only can these cells be used for healing, but also in Aesthetic medicine, as fillers for the face and hands.
In November 2017, the FDA reaffirmed that the Lipogems system meets the new guidelines’ criteria for minimal manipulation of the tissue. “Fat has been used for many years in support of the repair or replacement of damaged or injured tissue,” according to Dr. Arnold Caplan of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. “Fat has a high concentration of reparative cells and is a very powerful tissue. How the fat is processed makes a huge difference on the quality of the tissue and if it meets the new FDA guidelines.”
Lipogems is unique because it keeps the cells and tissue intact, and thus functions much like the way it does naturally in the human body—and meets the new FDA guidelines for minimal manipulation.”
Accept No Substitutes
According to Carl Llewellyn, President of Lipogems, USA, “There are many stem cell treatment centers and clinics using technologies that are not FDA cleared or approved. Many of these clinics are selling stem cell treatments unproven for safety and efficacy, and these lack FDA review and oversight.”
“In fact, many of these clinics are using a process to create a ‘stromal vascular fraction’ of cells isolated from fat tissue, which the FDA considers to be more than minimally manipulated, and thus, requiring significant regulatory oversight as an experimental drug.
