Adipose tissue is a type of connective tissue. It consists of fat cells – adipocytes. Adipose tissue performs many functions in the human body. They include: energy supply, thermal insulation, protection of organs from mechanical damage (fat layer), endocrine function.
Adipose tissue is the best natural filler in plastic and reconstructive surgeries. Also a unique mixture of cells with a wide range of activities for the treatment of a large number of diseases can be taken out of the adipose tissue. Moreover, adipose tissue cells can be built up in large quantities in the laboratory.
There are two types of adipose tissue: brown and white. They differ not only in color (white is white or slightly yellowish, and brown stays brown), but also the amount of energy released. Brown emits more heat, which warms the body better. Newborns have a lot of it. As a person grows up, its amount decreases.
In modern plastic surgery liposculpture is actively developing as a promising direction, which creates the desired lines of the body by moving adipose tissue from one area to another.

In regenerative medicine:
Adipose tissue can be used to produce a variety of cellular components.
Adipose stem cells treat diseases such as:
And many others.
The possibilities of adipose tissue use and products based on it are constantly enlarging, and frozen tissue can be stored without loss of properties without limit!
The intake of adipose tissue is carried out in adulthood and in almost any condition of the patient, but:
The procedure for banking adipose tissue is better to plan, while you’re healthy (without any signs of disease) and the sooner, the better!
Biological insurance or personal biobanking allows you to create a reserve of your own healthy vital and active cells and tissues for treatment, rejuvenation, prevention of diseases and improve the quality of life over time.
How it happens?
Biomaterial sampling is taken under local anesthesia in a day hospital. The next day you will be able to return to your daily routine without any constrains.
Risks and discomforts
Risks from sampling biomaterial are minimal and are completely similar to risks of surgical intervention, blood collection or a visit to the dentist. Minor pain and bruises may appear after sampling, but they disappear within a couple of days.
Think about the future now!
With the most modern developments – most of the deceases can be prevented, and if the trouble happened, there is a real opportunity to improve the effectiveness of traditional treatment.Sign up for a consultation
