How it works and what to expect
Liquid Gold™ lipobanking combines the gentlest liposuction techniques for body contouring with new breakthroughs in fat grafting, autologous fat transfer, and regenerative aesthetics to give you the most innovative, least invasive and most natural approach to plastic and cosmetic surgery available today.
A comprehensive approach using FDA approved techniques
Start with a personal consultation
Liquid Gold™ starts with a highly personal consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Hartog M.D., one of the U.S.’s most respected cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons. This one-on-one assessment is used to discuss the specific procedure you are interested in using the Liquid Gold approach for – such as breast augmentation, facial rejuvenation, reconstruction, etc.
In this personal consultation we talk about:
- The results you want to achieve
- The specific procedure that you would like to use the Liquid Gold approach for
- What you can expect
- The best location for harvesting your body fat and the added benefits of liposuction
- Scheduling details for your procedure
And of course, we answer any questions you may have! This results in a customized plan for using Liquid Gold™ approach to achieve your specific goals.
Uses state-of-the-art liposuction techniques
Liquid Gold™ only uses the most gentle and advanced liposuction technologies in the world today including Body-Jet®, TickleLipo®, and Vaser® where appropriate. These technologies are used to gently harvest fat from convenient (or unwanted) areas including the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and thighs.
Unlike more traditional and potentially painful liposuction techniques the approach used by Liquid Gold™ is far less traumatic and liposuction, particularly for smaller grafting procedures, can be performed under a local anaesthetic or light sedation in our state and federally certified facility. That means you experience more rapid recovery and minimal downtime.
Purification ensures a quality graft
Once harvested the Liquid Gold™ approach uses PureGraft® to cleanse and purify your body fat. PureGraft® is an advanced FDA approved device that produces highly concentrated and purified fat tissue that is ready for body sculpting, breast reconstruction facial rejuvenation and many other cosmetic surgery procedures. High graft quality is ensured through advanced lipodialysis filtration technology. This carefully removes excess and unwanted fluid, free lipids, blood cells and other contaminants that result naturally from the liposuction process and ensures the cleanest, purest possible fat for immediate grafting or long-term storage in the Bougainvillea Clinique’s state-of-the-art cryogenic facilities.
Minimally invasive fat transfer
Liquid Gold™ harnesses the most advanced autologous fat transfer and microlipoinjection techniques to transfer your purified fat to a new location such as breast, face, hands, and buttocks: wherever you want a more youthful appearance or improved shape and body contour. Your purified fat is transferred into injection syringes and small parcels are gently injected through several layers of skin and muscle to ensure your living fat tissue finds a rich supply of blood.
Technologically advanced lipobanking facilities extends the value
Liquid Gold™ represents a true revolution in the fat grafting procedure. In the past, all fat harvested through liposuction needed to be used on the same day as the graft procedure. If additional fat was required in the future, the entire procedure would need to be repeated.
- With the Liquid Gold™ lipobanking technique; instead of doing liposuction and the actual grafting on same day, your fat is harvested and stored in the world’s first on-site StemSource® fat mini-bank at the adjacent Adrecyte Regenerative Medicine and Surgery Center a state and federally certified ambulatory facility.
This enables a sufficient quantity of fat to be harvested in a single procedure to allow follow-up fat injection procedures being performed over years if necessary.
The Adrecyte Regenerative Medicine and Surgery Center is one of the few facilities in the U.S. with the Cytori StemSource® device for separation of adult stem and regenerative cells from fat. These cells can be separated to enhance fat grafting procedures as well as other potentially beneficial uses in regenerative medicine.
Where needed, enhanced tissue preparation techniques such as the BRAVA® external expansion system may be recommended to further enhance the take of the grafted fat.
Post-surgical follow-up consultation
The Liquid Gold™ approach includes a personal follow-up consultation and examination to review the process, look at before and after photos, and ensure the procedure achieved the desired look you want.
Developed by a recognized leader in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery
The Liquid Gold™ approach has been developed and perfected by Dr. Jeffrey Hartog M.D., D.M.D, a well-known and highly respected plastic and reconstructive surgeon. With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Hartog is:
- The founder and director of the Bougainvillea Clinique in Winter Park, Florida, established in 1996
- The Medical Director of the Adrecyte Regenerative Medicine and Surgery Center
- One of a few physicians who have dual board certifications in Plastic Surgery and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
