Vogue Magazine Explains Coleman Fat Grafting

Posted October 12, 2010 in Hand and Forearm Rejuvenation, Home, Media, Natural Facial Rejuvenation

In October’s Vogue Magazine, Catherine Piercy Reports how Coleman Fat Transplanatation Works

“In a nutshell, here’s how it works:  Fat is suctioned from the abdomen, love handles, or back—’anywhere there’s excess,’ says Coleman—using low-pressure liposuction, and is transferred to another area of the body through a series of precise injections with a syringe-like instrument.  There, the tiny blood vessels within the fat will connect to the tissue around it and take up residence in their new environment.  Once it settles into place, you may see more than an increase in volume.  ‘The quality of the skin—its color, its texture—improves,’ says Coleman, who also notes a softening in the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite.  That’s because fat is loaded with adult stem cells—as many as one million per cubic centimeter, by recent estimates—making it ‘a dynamic, living form of repair and rejuvenation.’”

This is an excerpt from an article named “BLOW UP” in Vogue Magazine October 2010, about fat grafting for changing body contours featuring the developer of LipoStructure, Sydney Coleman, a New York City Plastic Surgeon.
