Stem Cell Overview
procedure is done for whole body anti-aging.
The stem cells have the ability to continuously divide and transform
into different cells that the body needs for repair and regeneration
to delay aging and to even repair damaged cells and regenerate sick
cells or organs. The anti-aging effects are manifested in terms of
increase in energy resulting in longer productive hours, increased
mental alertness and comprehension and in some patients increase in
sexual desire. Anti-aging is also seen in the improved quality of
the skin color, radiance and texture. These anti-aging benefits sum
up to better quality of life for the patient.
As a preparation, you
need to fast or stop food and drinks and water at least 4 to 6 hours
before the procedure.
The procedure is
done in the operating room under sterile conditions. Local
anesthesia with or without sedation by an anesthesiologist is used.
100cc of fats are suctioned out from the abdominal or tummy area as
in liposuction and these are processed to extract the stem cells
that are attached to the fats. All the fats are thrown away so there
is no danger of fat embolism.
The stem cells are then
activated using the growth factors released from the plasma of the
your blood. Once activated, the stem cells are added to the
intravenous fluid that has been running and infused to your vein in
30 minutes to 1 hour. The whole procedure takes 4 hours to finish.
You may remove the abdominal binder after 4 days and one or two
sutures are removed after 7 days.
You may resume exercise,
gym, and sport activities after 14 days.
The effect on your
body starts to appear or be felt from 2 weeks to up to 11 months. If
you have a disease condition or degenerative disease, it takes
longer. In some patients, they submit themselves to another
transplant to accelerated their improvement and experience more
immediate quality of life. The transplant can be repeated upon
patient's choice earliest one year after last transplant.
