Don’t Let Fear Win: Learn the Facts About Stem Cell Therapy
Posted on September 5, 2018
When you think about stem cell therapy, what comes to mind? Do you immediately think that stem cell therapy is invasive, difficult or painful? Have you thought about undergoing stem cell therapy in the past, but have not yet made a call to Park Avenue Stem Cell Center because you think the stem cell harvesting process may hurt? If you are putting off treatment because you believe stem cell therapy is going to be painful, think again. Fat stem cell therapy is minimally invasive, nearly painless and fast.
Is Stem Cell Harvesting Painful?
No. In fact, it is relatively quick and painless. Before the harvesting process begins, Dr. Singer numbs the area and makes a small incision in the body area donating the fat, such as the lower back, thigh or abdomen. This incision is so tiny that it may not even require a bandage.
Next, he inserts a small, special cannula tube into the incision to collect your fat through liposuction.
How Long Does Harvesting Take?
The harvesting procedure takes only about 15 to 20 minutes. This is because the harvesting of fat stem cells is significantly less invasive than other types of stem cell harvesting that may require general anesthesia.
After the harvesting procedure, you may experience some mild swelling and bruising in the collection area.
After Dr. Singer collects your fat cells, they are processed through spinning to separate the fat stem cells from other blood and tissue. One cannula of fat yields millions of stem cells, so they do not need to be proliferated in a lab before being used.
Now comes deployment, or the process of returning the fat stem cells to your body. Deployment is also nearly painless – there is only a quick prick of the needle in most cases.
After your fat stem cells are deployed back into your body, they begin repairing damaged tissues, reducing pain and decreasing inflammation caused by injury, illness and disease. Many individuals who choose fat stem cell therapy from Park Avenue Stem Cell require only one treatment, but many people like the improvements they see in their condition and schedule addition treatments.
