The Lipogems procedure uses cutting-edge technology that gently processes your body’s own fat tissue in order to, amongst other things, cushion and support areas of injury or damage as your body heals itself. The microfragmented fat is injected precisely into areas of the body in order to help support tissue healing and repair.

The Lipogems Procedure: Experience the Difference

  • In our minimally invasive, point-of-care procedure, your physician will make a tiny puncture through your skin (you won’t even need a stitch!) and take a small section of fat from either your midsection or “love handles.”
  • Next, your collected fat will be processed in the special Lipogems device using sterile saline solution. This occurs through a very gentle process called micro-fragmentation, during which your fat is washed, rinsed, and resized into smaller clusters while maintaining the natural beneficial properties of your fat.  Impurities in your fat such as blood, cell debris, and oils are removed as the desirable remainder of your fat is concentrated.Your physician then will use a small needle to inject the microfragmented tissue into the treatment site.
  • The simplicity of the procedure means that it requires only local anesthesia (you won’t have to be put to sleep) and can be performed in approximately one hour in an outpatient facility such as a physician’s office or surgery center. There is minimal recovery time from the Lipogems procedure.
