Everyone has those problem areas that no matter how much diet and exercise they do, they simply won’t budge. Advanced Liposuction procedures offer patients the ability to sculpt those problem areas with minimal downtime. Now, patients have the option to bank their fat and not thrown it away. Banking fat and stem cells saves valuable tissue that would otherwise be thrown away as medical waste  and preserves its regenerative properties for future medical or anti-aging treatments. This process allows youthful cells to be maintained over an entire lifetime for use in: wound care, breast reconstruction and augmentation, facelift, anti-aging and stem cell therapy.

How does it work?
The process is simple. Fat, which is naturally rich in adult stems cells is obtained using an advanced liposuction technique, then processed/stored using cryopreservation.

Natural Anti-Aging Alternative:

Dr. Todd Malan is utilizing fat as a natural filler rather than synthetic fillers such as Juvederm, Restalyne or Sculptra for cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Using fat from your own body by means of fat grafting or fat transfer removes the risks associated with introducing foreign materials to the body vastly improving patient safety.

Top Five Reasons to Bank Your Fat:

1) It’s Bio-Insurance.
Invest in yourself! By creating your own repository of fat and stem cells, it’s there to use whenever you choose. Adult stem cells are already showing much promise for many medical and degenerative conditions. By banking your fat and adult stem cells you are able to protect valuable tissue and cells for future health concerns or utilize them for a natural aesthetic, reconstructive or anti-aging alternative.

2) It’s Easy!
Fat is removed using Dr. Malan’s advanced liposuction technique. Then, your fat is safely stored and ready for multiple future uses, avoiding the need to have liposuction each time you’d like to use fat or adult stem cells.

3) It’s Young.
Preserving today means you’ll be saving your younger tissue and cells to use later as the challenges of aging arise. Because cells are stored in a state of suspended animation, with cryopreservation, their potency is maintained. Younger tissue and cells have a higher regenerative capacity making them a valuable component of your age management plan.

4) It’s All You.
You’ll be using your own tissue, so no foreign substances or objects will be introduced into your body. There is absolutely no risk of rejection when you are utilizing your own tissue and stem cells. There’s nothing “greener” than recycling yourself.

5) It’s the Future.
Fat is your body’s richest source of adult stem cells. At current, there are several exciting and well-documented therapies for fat and adult stem cells. The future of age related medicine offers remarkable promise for longevity and improved quality of life by utilizing your body’s natural building blocks. Saving your fat and adult stem cells today is an investment in your future aging needs.

He is frequently asked to be a guest speaker on the topic and to participate in FDA trials for emerging technology.

He believes a customized approach in which he can tailor your specific procedure to your desired goals is far more effective.

3) What is the downtime associated with an advanced liposuction procedure?

Typical downtime is 1-2 days depending on the number of areas being treated. Many patients like to have their procedure performed on a Friday and return to work the following Monday. After 1-2 days patients can start getting back into their regular routine. Patients can expect to be sore and have some swelling. Many report they feel as though they have had a hard work out. If you are treating several areas at once or have a very challenging physical job, you may want to plan for a lighter schedule. Each patients experience is as individualized as they are, listening to your body will ensure you have an optimal healing experience.

4) When will I see results from an advanced liposuction procedure?

Results can be seen immediately, however the body does not heal instantly. As a result of your procedure, you will experience some swelling in the treated areas. The swelling is your body’s way of telling you it is healing. Depending on the amount of fat removed and your personal constitution will depend how quickly the swelling or inflammation resolves. We have found post operative supplement use to be very effective in assisting the body resolve inflammation. Our medical staff will advise which products are most effective. Typically at 4 weeks post operative, patients will see a noticeable benefit from their procedure. Clothing will fit better and the treated area will be smaller.
5) How long will it take before I can work out after having advanced liposuction?

Most patients who have an advanced liposuction procedure can return to light to moderate cardiovascular exercise within the first week of their procedure. Typically, patients can return to a more vigorous exercise program at the end of two weeks. We encourage each patient to ease back into exercise and really listen to what their body is trying to communicate to them. Your recovery is as individualized as you are and it’s important to acknowledge the communication your body is providing while you are healing. If you are doing too much too soon, the body will tell you by feeling tired.

6) Will I have bruising from an advanced liposuction procedure and how long will it take for it to go away?

You should expect some bruising. Bruising varies from patient to patient. Taking preoperative measures such as avoiding alcohol, aspirin, fish oils and flax seed oils two weeks prior to your procedure will significantly reduce your risk of bruising. Additionally, starting a homeopathic remedy such as Arnica one week prior to your procedure will assist in preventing bruising. You will be provided with detailed preoperative instructions prior to your procedure and our medical staff will review all instructions with you thoroughly. Typical bruising can last up to 2 weeks. If you are someone who is prone to bruising then proper preoperative planning and use of Arnica is strongly advised.

7) Will I have scarring from having an advanced liposuction procedure?

While scarring is not typical, it is a risk with any type of surgical procedure. Dr. Malan and our medical staff will consult with you prior to your procedure to address if you have a history of keloid scarring. If you are prone to scarring, we will discuss care and use of specific products that can assist in preventing keloid scarring of the incision site.

If you are not prone to scarring then typically patients will not notice incision sites 1-3 months after their procedure. It is our goal to minimize the amount of incisions and strategically place them for the best aesthetic outcome. Incision sites are very small and after 1-3 months typically patients will not be able to see where the incisions were placed. It is important to follow postoperative instructions regarding incision care. One important step is to always apply sunscreen to incision sites within the first year of your procedure.

Fat transfer is a dream come true. Remove fat from where you don’t want it and place it where you do! As we age, we lose fat to our face, breasts, buttock and hands. Dr. Todd Malan has been using fat transfer for years to help patients restore a more youthful appearance but it wasn’t until recently that other doctors started speaking out about the benefits and adopting the procedure. Dr. Todd Malan is consistently ahead of the curve when it comes to innovative approaches to aging. He also offer stem cell enhanced cosmetic procedures and fat/stem cell banking.

Stem Cell enhanced procedures use the adult stem cells that are found naturally in your own fat. These stem cells are separated from a portion of the fat harvested during liposuction and carefully concentrated. Then the stem cells, which are the rejuvenating cells that have been shown in recent studies to repair damaged cardiac tissue, are added to cleaned fat that will be injected into the areas in need of volume restoration. The effect is that the stem cells help keep the fat alive, stimulate collagen and repair damaged tissue. This means skin behaves and responds more like younger skin.

Fat is a natural alternative to using synthetic fillers which only last up to a year, if you are lucky. Fat on the other hand, can last for several years and be permanent. Keep in mind, it doesn’t stop you from aging, but it certainly is an effective weapon for looking and feeling your best for as long as possible. The trick to aging is to minimize sun exposure, alcohol intake, absolutely no smoking and reduce stressors. Diet and exercise along with checking hormone levels also help. The key to age management is a synergistic approach.

If you are considering fat transfer, keep in mind that not all doctors use the same technology or technique. Cost can vary, but the rule of thumb is you don’t go to the cheapest doctor in town. Do your research and its always a good idea to go to someone who specializes in fat transfer or the procedure you are looking to have done. Dr. Todd Malan is the preferred choice for fat transfer, stem cell enhanced cosmetic procedures and fat/stem cell banking. Find more information at: InnovativeCosmeticSurgery.com

It’s fair to say that men are just as concerned about how they look and feel as us ladies. Men seem to care but talk to us women less about their physical flaws, where women seem to openly complain and over talk physical aging concerns.  Maybe men feel like we will think they are less manly, but the fact is we like men who care about how they feel, look and care for themselves. Let’s face it a well-balanced man translates into stability.

For years men have been challenged with aging, weight gain, hormone changes yet few were willing to talk. The options for those who did  were limited.  A man who developed the pot belly and man boobs were simply told just diet  and exercise. Sometimes diet and exercise  as we know is just not enough.  Dr. Todd K. Malan offers men a new option through his combined method of water assisted liposuction and laser lipo.  This minimally invasive procedure can reduce and sculpt those problem areas with little downtime. The results speak for themselves. Check out the video below of Anthony’s success story. To see more photos like these also visit: innovativecosmeticsurgery.com

For example, Madonna’s hands are the topic of public conversation continuously; In the age of high definition TV and paparazzi ridden streets critics don’t miss a beat. Her face, skin and body are flawless, many even say she looks better now at 52 than she did at 32. The only visible part that shows aging is her hands!

Society is catching on too, because the newest trend in cosmetic surgery is *Ditching Granny Hands* by way of fat transfer.

Many patients are maximizing their results with The Stem Cell Enhanced Hand Renewal Procedure. By adding in your own rejuvenating adult stem cells a patient can repair damaged aging cells which in turn helps the skin and tissue mimic younger skin . “This is a viable option for a patient who is undergoing liposuction or a patient who wants to remove only a minimal amount of fat for the procedure,” explains Dr. Todd Malan. This procedure is performed awake and results are immediately visible. Some minimal swelling is to be expected , but you can resume normal activity after 2-3 days.
