Experience the ONLY FDA approved Adipose Tissue Treatment
Liopogems Patient Video
Advantages of Lipogems
• FAT is minimally invasive to harvest
• Most people have a lot of extra FAT
• FAT is the highest quality tissue
• FAT has 100-500 times more reparative cells
than other similar tissue
• FAT provides cushion and support
• For patients that suffer from orthopaedic
conditions in multiple areas of their body, Fat cells can be delivered to multiple areas in just one visit
• Research has shown that as a person ages, their FAT maintains its reparative properties unlike other similar tissue, such as bone marrow, which may lose healing capacity with age
• FAT contains many supportive and reparative cells that help to promote a healing environment throughout the body
THE AMAZING POWER OF FAT
Fat is a versatile tissue that plays essential roles in the way our body functions, but one of the most remarkable is the role that fat may play in how we heal. A variety of studies over many decades have been conducted exploring the healing potential of fat. There is even documentation describing the use of fat to accelerate the healing of soldiers’ battle wounds during World War I! So what have we learned from history and research about the healing potential of fat?
HOW EXACTLY DOES LIPOGEMS WORK?
LIPOGEMS is ideal for patients that have an orthopaedic condition, unable to get major, invasive surgery, would like another option to major, invasive surgery, or would like to be used in conjunction with their surgery.
Microfragmented adipose tissue processed by the LIPOGEMS System is used to provide cushion and support to help the natural healing process by supporting the repair, replacement, reconstruction of damaged or injured tissue.
The LIPOGEMS minimally invasive procedure is performed in a physicians office or a surgical setting and can be completed in less than an hour.
The fat is first harvested. It’s then gently processed and/or cleaned with the LIPOGEMS device and then delivered into areas in the body to promote healing.
One great advantage of LIPOGEMS is that the fat cells can be delivered to multiple areas of the body. For patients that suffer from orthopaedic conditions in multiple areas of their body, the LIPOGEMS device can easily process the fat tissue to be used in all those areas in just one visit.
Professor Caplan is “The father of the MSC”, explains in this clip how this new branch of science works.

"You are ALIVE because you continuously renew (rejuvenate) various tissues/organs. Within the body, cells of the skin, gut, and blood, among others come to maturation, function for a time and then expire to be replaced by a continuous stream of cells which renew the tissue."
