Fat Grafting for Regenerative
Medicine in Gilbert, Arizona

Are you seeking a natural and innovative solution to alleviate joint pain and enhance your joint function? At DrSkin Med Spa in Arizona, we are proud to offer regenerative medicine treatments utilizing fat transfer to the joints, a cutting-edge procedure that utilizes your body’s own resources for effective healing and restoration.

What is Fat Transfer to the Joints?

Transferring adipose tissue to the joints as a form of regenerative medicine is a revolutionary procedure that harnesses the healing properties of your fat tissue—adipose—to promote healing within arthritic or painful joints. Through a minimally invasive procedure, fat cells containing reparative properties are harvested from your body and injected into the affected joint, stimulating tissue repair and regeneration.

How Does Micro-Fragmented Tissue Work?

At DrSkin Med Spa, we utilize an advanced technique that involves micro-fragmenting the harvested fat tissue for this regenerative procedure. This process creates small clusters of fat cells that are rich in regenerative elements, including pre-adipocytes, fibroblasts, vascular endothelial cells, and immune cells. This mixture of cells is crucial for supporting tissue repair, providing cushioning, and promoting the overall health of your joints.

What are the Benefits of Fat Transfer to the Joints?

Here are some of the advantages of this procedure:

  • Non-Surgical Alternative: Transferring fat to your joints may sound like a complicated procedure, but it is not. This is a non-surgical approach that minimizes risk and downtime.
  • Natural Healing: By using your own fat tissue, the procedure harnesses your body’s innate regenerative abilities, promoting natural healing and tissue regeneration.
  • Minimally Invasive: The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort and a faster recovery time compared to invasive surgeries. With minimal scarring and a reduced risk of complications, you can expect a smooth and swift recovery.
  • Long-Term Results: Once injected, the micro-fragmented tissue remains in the injected area, maximizing the benefits of the procedure for an extended period.

What to Expect From a Regenerative Medicine Treatment

Your journey starts with a consultation at DrSkin Med Spa with one of our experienced medical professionals. During this initial appointment, your joint condition is assessed, medical history reviewed, and your symptoms, goals, and hopes discussed. Once the day of your treatment is decided and scheduled, you will be given some pre-treatment instructions to help ensure the best possible outcome.

On the day of the procedure, you will be comfortably positioned, and local anesthesia will be administered to numb the treatment area. Using a minimally invasive technique, a small incision will be made near the targeted joint. Fat tissue will then be harvested from a donor site on your body, such as the abdomen or thighs, using liposuction or a similar method.

The harvested fat tissue will undergo a specialized process called micro-fragmentation. This technique breaks down the fat cells into smaller clusters, concentrating the regenerative elements necessary for joint healing and function.

Once the micro-fragmented tissue is ready, it will be carefully injected into the targeted joints. The injection may be guided by imaging technology, such as ultrasound or fluoroscopy, to ensure precise placement. The regenerative properties of the fat tissue will then work to promote tissue repair, reduce inflammation, and improve joint function over time.

The Recovery Process and Results

After the procedure, you may experience mild soreness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. These effects are typically temporary and can be managed with pain medication, ice packs, and following any post-treatment care instructions provided by your medical professional. You will have a follow-up appointment to monitor your progress, assess your response to the treatment, and make any necessary adjustments to your aftercare plan.

Over the following weeks and months, you should begin to experience improvements in joint pain, function, and mobility. The regenerative process initiated by the transferred fat tissue takes time, and individual results may vary. Multiple treatments may be recommended for optimal results, depending on your specific condition and response to the initial treatment.

Currently, there is no definitive answer on how long these results will last, but clinical studies have provided evidence to suggest that you can anticipate long-term relief.

Are You a Candidate for Fat Transfer to the Joints?

Generally, individuals who are looking for regenerative medicine are those who have joint mobility issues, osteoarthritis, or another degenerative joint condition. Perhaps your current treatment is not working as well as you had hoped, or the NSAIDs you are taking are not providing relief.

However, as with most treatments, there are some contraindications that may make you ineligible for this kind of treatment, including:

  • Allergy to local anesthetics
  • Certain blood disorders
  • Active systemic infections
  • Ongoing cancer treatment
  • Breastfeeding or plans for
  • breastfeeding
  • Recent cortisone
  • injections
  • Autoimmune diseases
