Adipose tissue cryopreservation

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.

Where fat tissue used?

  • In aesthetic medicine.

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.

  • Liposculpture is widespread throughout the world as the most physiological way for the body to correct appearance.
  • Adipose tissue can be used as a universal filler or a highly effective way to activate the regeneration processes.
  • It’s mostly used in correction of:
    • lips
    • cheeks
    • neck
    • knees
    • buttocks
    • hands

Comparison of adipose tissue and hyaluronic acid as a filler:

Adipose tissue:

  • Allergic reactions or postoperative rejection of the material are excluded
  • Long-term effect
  • The recovery of the skin nutrition, stimulation of regenerating processes, fat tissue survives in the introduction and creates the necessary frame to maintain the shape.

Hyaluronic acid:

  • Possible allergic reactions or rejection of the material
  • The effect maintains only for few months
  • The process is based on the use of water molecules – hydration of the skin.

In regenerative medicine:

Adipose tissue can be used to produce a variety of cellular components.

Adipose stem cells treat diseases such as:

  • Injuries and degenerative changes of the musculoskeletal system: osteoarthritis, ligament ruptures;
  • Burns: thermal, radiation, chemical;
  • Diseases of the genitourinary system: stress urinary incontinence, urethral structure, impotence (erectile dysfunction);
  • Diseases of the organs of vision: glaucoma;
  • Chronic liver and kidney disease;
  • Systemic diseases: scleroderma, etc.;
  • Improvement of the results of treatment of complex surgical operations on internal organs

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!

Biological insurance is actual for everyone!

The intake of adipose tissue is carried out in adulthood and in almost any condition of the patient, but:

  • The activity of adipose tissue cells and its amount decrease with the age;
  • Regenerative ability of the body reduces;
  • In case of disease, the sampling of biomaterial and its processing take time, which delays treatment.

The procedure for banking adipose tissue is better to plan, while you’re healthy (without any signs of disease) and the sooner, the better!

What for?

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.
