Liposuction method can adversely affect adipose tissue-derived stem cell yield and growth

Adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cell yield and growth characteristics are affected by the tissue-harvesting procedure which was published in Cytotherapy (vol. 8 issue 2, 2006, pages 166-177)states that:

“Ultrasound-assisted liposuction resulted in a lower frequency of proliferating adult stem cells, as well as a longer population doubling time of adult stem cells, compared with resection…”

Those seeking adipose stem cell therapy should ask their doctor if he or she is using ultrasound assisted liposuction to collect the fat sample.

*Stem Cell Institute does not use ultrasound assisted liposuction.
