Fat Transfer

Fat Transfer Stem Cell Therapy in Mason City

Regenerative Cell Institute offers a variety of fat transfer procedures as part of their aesthetic rejuvenation services. Using advanced autologous fat transfer techniques and a proprietary method of combining fat and enriched platelet rich plasma, Dr. Santos utilizes the patient’s own unwanted fat to effectively fill frown lines, laugh lines, and crow’s feet and rejuvenate other parts of the body by using the fat to add volume to the tissue.

What to Expect

Dr. Santos personally evaluates each patient to assess their condition and determine the best course of treatment.  Once the care plan is in place, unwanted fat is removed from the patient’s abdomen and re-injected into the desired area (face, hands, breasts, or buttocks).  When needed, liposoulpt will be used on specific areas of body to add volume. Our gentle, non-traumatic methods provide patients with a fast recovery with minimal downtime.

Fat transfer procedures are simple, safe, and completed in office as outpatient.  Treatments can take anywhere from 2 – 4 hours to complete.

Natural Breast Augmentation

Regenerative Cell Institute’s innovative natural breast augmentation technique uses a simple fat transfer procedure to add natural volume and increase breast size by 1 – 2 cup sizes.  This regenerative breast augmentation procedure is used to restore damaged breast tissue, serves as an alternative to traditional breast implant procedures, and results in a more natural looking breast enhancement.

Using the patient’s own fat cells, which are a rich source of regenerative cells, Dr. Santos offers the most advanced, completely natural method of non-surgical breast enlargement.  Fat cells are harvested from the abdomen, hips, or thighs, and used to enhance breast size and shape using a gentle liposuction technique and technology. This also helps to reshape and contour the area of the body from which the fat is being harvested.

Advantages of Natural Breast Augmentation:

  • Naturally Increases breast size by 1 – 2 cup sizes.
  • Enhances breast volume and shape.
  • Results in a more natural look and feel.
  • Alleviates the need for implants and their associated risks.
  • Advanced method is among the safest, gentlest method available today.
  • Entire process involves little to no pain/discomfort, no general anesthesia, with faster recovery and little downtime.

Brazilian Butt Lift™ and Augmentation

A Brazilian Butt Lift™ is a butt augmentation procedure that uses liposuction to harvest fat from one or more areas of the body, and inject it into the butt cheeks and the outer hips. It can address a range of concerns, including flat or sagging buttocks, asymmetry, or other disproportions sometimes due to massive weight loss. This butt augmentation procedure is completed naturally and requires no silicone or general anesthesia.

Advantages of Brazilian Butt Lift™ and Augmentation:

  • Body’s own unwanted fat is used to add dimension to the buttocks.
  • Defines the natural female curvature providing immediate projection to the gluteus area.
  • Alleviates the need for implants and their associated risks.
  • Results in a more natural look and feel.
  • No major incisions or trauma to the body is involved.
  • Does not require general anesthesia.
  • Faster recovery and little downtime.

The greatest benefit of the Brazilian Butt Lift™ surgery is that the fat cells that survive the transfer will live in their new location forever.  Dr. Santos expects roughly 60% of the injected fat to stay in the area in which they were injected; the body will naturally reabsorb and eliminate the rest.   The injected fat cells will behave like the rest of the fat in the body and are thus susceptible to weight fluctuations. To have the highest chance of long-lasting results, patients should be prepared to maintain their weight following the procedure, rather than trying to lose weight.

Hand Rejuvenation

Over time, oils in the skin begin to dry out and lose elasticity, and the skin on our hands begins to wrinkle and thin.  Aside from the face, the hands are one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging and our hand rejuvenation treatments reduce the visible signs of aging.

Regenerative Cell Institutes hand rejuvenation procedures are specifically designed to take years off the appearance of the hands by naturally restoring the hands’ volume and skin tightness. With this procedure, hollow areas of the hands are plumped up, volume is restored to the bony regions, and structure is regained. Regenerative fat transfers make it possible to plump the skin and maintain a younger, more natural appearance.

This painless procedure takes 30 minutes – 1 hour and is performed under local anesthesia. It is safe, effective, and requires little to no downtime.
