Procedures

Stemform has developed techniques to safely isolate adipose derived stem cells (ASCs) from patients’ fat tissue, and to subsequently expand these cells in our approved laboratories in a controlled and safe way.

The expanded ASCs can be used in various cosmetic treatments such as breast augmentations and facial filling/rejuvenation procedures.

We offer our treatment solutions to certified customers such as selected private hospitals, clinics and surgeons, so that our customers are able to offer their patients safe, natural, reliable and permanent cosmetic treatments.

To our knowledge, Stemform is the first company in the world, regulated by appropriate health authorities, to offer such procedures, so that individuals can proudly use their own body to achieve their cosmetic desires in the most natural way – i.e. using nothing more than their own tissue and cells and rely on the outcomes.

Regardless of Stemform treatment, patients receive a minor liposuction on day 0 under local anesthesia at one of our certified customer’s clinics or hospitals. The patient’s lipoaspirate is transported to the closest Stemform laboratory – clean room – for further processing. Depending on the procedure agreed between the patient and doctor as well as the age of the patient, the final harvesting of the cells happen between day 14-28. The patient’s cells are then transported back to the agreed surgical facility, where the actual procedure will take place in line with the patient/doctor agreement.

Breast treatment

As the body ages, most women expirience a breast volume loss, particularly after giving birth. Other women may not have much volume to begin with or simply want bigger or more evenly sized breasts. Either way, not every woman is willing to go through surgery, scaring their breasts, and placing foreign objects in the body just to rectify the situation.

This is where natural breast augmentations come to mind. Since breast tissue is comprised mainly of fat, the idea is to take excess body fat from a patient desired part of the body and place it where it is wanted – i.e. the breasts.

However, conventional lipofilling (fat transplantation) solutions for breast augmentation, albeit generally a safe procedure, results in unreliable outcomes and require multiple treatments under general anesthesia to reach satisfactory results, and often never fulfil the patient’s desires. It may also not be a realistic solution for many (e.g. thin women with just enough excess body fat for one procedure).

The Stemform ASC procedures provide the surgeons with the most versatile filler solution, which is not justa 100% natural being the patient’s own tissue and cells, but also create reliable and permanent results after just one treatment.

Furthermore, the versatile filler solution allows doctor/patients to agree on the most attractive breast look in the specific case. Stemform ASC procedure enables unparalleled surgical flexibility to meet the desires of patients.

That way, a patient can comfortably return to their lives with peace of mind knowing they are getting a reliable, safe, and natural solution the first time, and not worry about unpredictable outcomes, or complications associated with breast implants that are temporary in nature.

Patient Process
Patients receive a minor liposuction on day 0 under local anesthesia at one of our certified customer’s clinics or hospitals. The patient’s lipoaspirate will be transported to the closest Stemform laboratory – clean room – for further processing. Depending on the size of the breasts and age of the patient, the final harvesting of the cells happens between day 14-28. The patient’s cells are transported back to the agreed surgical facility, where the actual procedure will take place in line with the patient/doctor agreement.

Patient Outcomes
Natural breast augmentations with the Stemform method is very reliable. If a patient and doctor has agreed on a 300ml (300cc) increase in breast size, a patient can expect to achieve such results within an acceptable range (range: 75%-120%), depending on the amount of fat tissue available for transplantation, age of the patient and preoperative breast size. After approximately six weeks, the breast volume stabilizes and become part of the body metabolism. The injected volume will have survived and a permanent result has been achieved subject to stabile weight. The outcomes are beautiful and natural – link to pictures.

Facial treatment

As we age, our skin changes. It becomes thinner, the subcutaous layer of fat also decreases, and the skin no longer looks as plump, and smooth as it once did. Facial aging already begins in our 20s, when skin firmness begins to decrease. This is a result of both internal (i.e. genetics and natural aging) and external (e.g. sun exposure, smoking, pollution) factors.

Fortunately, we live longer lives than previous generations thanks to better nutrition and medical advances, but on the flipside, it means we witness deterioration signs of our aging over a prolonged period.

Established solutions are offered to patients today to address the signs of facial aging, but whether it is resurfacing treatments, synthetic fillers/stimulators, or toxins to relax the skin, the results are modest and certainly short lived. Conventional lipofilling is natural, but results are unreliable, and require multiple treatments for modest gain. Surgery is invasive and highly dependent on the skills of the surgeon.
The Stemform ASC facial procedures address all the issues of the established solutions by providing a versatile filler solution that not only is 100% natural being the patient’s own tissue and cells, but also create reliable and permanent results after just one treatment.

That way, patients can comfortably return to their lives with peace of mind and not worry about the risks or side effects associated with invasive surgery solutions and/or repeated use of synthetic and chemical compounds.
Stemform’s ASC Facial solutions are used as a:

Filler – to replace lost facial volume or adding volume to the cheeks, folds, frown, and lips by injecting a filler consisting of ASCs and freshly harvested fat.

Wrinkle Corrector – to reduce facial wrinkles and finer wrinkles around the eye and mouth by injecting a high concentration of ASCs to fat under & in the dermis.

Rejuvenator – to rejuvenate the facial skin by injecting a high concentration of ASCs to fat in the dermis across the entire facial area to make the skin smooth and bring increased turgor and thickness to the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin.

Patient Process
Patients receive a minor liposuction on day 0 under local anesthesia at one of our certified customer’s clinics or hospitals. The patient’s lipoaspirate will be transported to the closest Stemform laboratory – clean room – for further processing. Depending on the facial treatment, the final harvesting of the cells happens between day 7-28. The patient’s cells are transported back to the agreed surgical facility, where the actual procedure will take place in line with the patient/doctor agreement.

Patient Outcomes
Facial filling & rejuvenation with the Stemform method is reliable with natural and aesthetic outcomes.

Full body treatment

As we age, we experience an undesired volume loss in the breasts, face and bottom), and gain volume in less attractive areas (e.g. stomach, hip, lower backside, thighs). Regardless of health, BMI, physical shape and caution from external factors, our body will eventually go through the same cycle.

However, through our customers, Stemform offers a full body treatment range, where the patient’s body is reversed to an improved aesthetic shape and youth. A full and thorough liposuction of the less attractive areas will take place. The required fat for breast augmentation, the facial procedure, and bottom lift will be placed aside, washed, spun down, and mixed with the patient’s expanded adipose derived stem cells, and injected into the specific areas, where it is needed.

Instead of focusing on just the breasts or the face, patients can get a full body sculpturing.

Patient Process
Patients receive a minor liposuction on day 0 under local anesthesia at one of our certified customer’s clinics or hospitals. The patient’s lipoaspirate will then be transported to the closest Stemform laboratory – clean room – for further processing. Depending on the scope of the full body treatment, the final harvesting of the cells happens between day 14-28. The patient’s cells are transported back to the agreed surgical facility, where the actual full body treatment will take place in line with the patient/doctor agreement.

Safety

To ensure a safe procedure, your doctor will talk to you about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for Stemform treatments. You should not get a Stemform treatments, if:

You have a history of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) to any of the used products (e.g. the anesthetic substances)

You have a history of eating disorders

You are prone to bleeding or have been diagnosed with a bleeding disorder

You are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Tell your doctor if you are on any medications that decrease your body’s immune response (immunosuppressive therapy). Tell your doctor if you are using any “blood thinners” such as aspirin, warfarin, or any other medications that affect bleeding.

The liposuction procedure is the most invasive part of the Stemform treatments and can cause mild bleeding, bruising, and changed skin color for a short period. Other commonly observed side effects are mild in severity and include redness and swelling at the injection site, headache, and tenderness for a short time. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection. You will be required to wear compression garments six weeks postoperatively. You will receive a detailed oral as well as written information about the procedure, including possible side effects and the expected postoperative process.

The Stemform treatments are only available through a Stemform licensed and certified practitioner.
