and Stemcell Fat Transfer Replacement (CAL®)
At Nirunda , Our board certified plastic surgeon can remove artificial breast implants and perform stemcell fat transfer by CAL to your breast augmentation at the same time.
By replacing the artificial implant with fat taken from patient’s own body, a natural looking breast, soft and responsive to movement, can be attained. 70 percent of the all side effects of cosmetic surgery are caused by artificial implants. Breast augmentation by implant can achieve a dramatic increase in the size of the breast relatively easily, but there are number of complications that may be caused by the implant. Some of the complications that would occur are capsular contracture (deformity by hardening), rupture or leaking of the implant, deformation or asymmetry of the breasts, infection or implant exposure from skin necrosis. They can also be easily noticeable unlike non-implanted breast, on reclining, the unnatural height and shape will indicate the presence of an implant, and the implant will be visible on x-ray.
Stemcell Fat transfer treatments are performed by using the patient’s own excess fat from the abdomen, hips, or buttocks to rejuvenate targeted areas of the face. Depending on the extent of the procedure, a general anesthetic or IV sedation is utilized for comfort. After any unusable fat cells have been removed, the harvested fat is then injected to the target site to restore volume.
What is Stemcell Fat Transfer by CAL®
Stemcell Fat Transfer or CAL (cell assisted liposuction) is a procedure where we harvest stem cells from fat extracted out of your own body and then, after mixing them with more fat, also taken from your own body, we transfer it to restore a youthful contour to the face, breasts, lips, hands and buttocks. The enriched stem cells within the fat will encourage the growth of new blood vessels to nourish the transplanted fat and may also stimulate the production of new fat cells. Compared to conventional liposuction-transplantation techniques, the survival rate of this enriched fat is much higher.
