Does the cell harvesting hurt?
Posted on June 22, 2016
Mini-lipoharvesting can be performed under local anesthesia through a tiny 2mm puncture in a very short time. This generally is completed within 10 – 15 minutes. Patients report minimal discomfort and can be back to work right away. Patients can also save some of the fat from elective cosmetic procedures by telling their surgeon ahead of time to contact Cells On Ice and they will be provided with a kit for sending some fat to our facility. Sadly, much fat is simply “thrown away” after these liposuctions and patients do not realize that they are disposing of their own “liquid biologic gold.”
