Fatty tissue is known to be a rich reservoir of stem cells. Physicians have been taking advantage of this fact and are using stem cells to treat orthopedic injuries, neurodegenerative and chronic diseases and now, hair loss.
Stem Cells Derived from the Patient’s own Fat Stimulate Hair Growth
The procedure is done as an outpatient with local anesthesia and a mild oral sedative. A small liposuction procedure is performed on the belly, flanks or “love handles” to obtain the patient’s own fat. A special process is used to isolate and concentrate the stem cells from the fat and these are then injected into the scalp. As you can see from these photos, results are very positive. While we do not know for how long the hair will continue to grow, we believe that occasional re-treatment will keep the process going.
