Mr Omar Tillo
Consultant Plastic Surgeon
Many options for improving the appearance of your face will include undergoing a surgical facelift or using fillers and chemicals. This can often be an unappealing option, especially for those who want a natural procedure with a minimal recovery period.
Stem cell facial rejuvenation uses your own stem cells and fat to improve the appearance of the skin. Stem cells and fat are taken from one area of the body, treated, and then transferred into the face. This causes new tissue to grow, causing the facial skin to appear healthier and more youthful.
You will be a suitable candidate for this procedure if you are wishing to rejuvenate your face and improve the signs of ageing, but do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure or use any chemical products.
You will need to have reasonable expectations about what the procedure can achieve.
Before undergoing stem cell facial rejuvenation, you will meet with the surgeon for a consultation. They will be able to assess whether or not you are an eligible candidate, or whether another procedure is more suitable for you.
Stem cell facial rejuvenation is performed as a day case, so you will be able to return home once your procedure is finished.
The procedure will be performed under a local anaesthetic; you will be awake for the procedure but will be unable to feel any discomfort.
The procedure involves undertaking liposuction on a donor area of the body. The area will vary from each person depending on where the fat is available, however, common areas include the abdomen or inner thighs. Stem cells will also be taken from the blood and bone marrow. Once the liposuction has taken place, the stem cells and fat are separated. The stem cells are then injected into the face.
The stem cells works to produce new tissue, making the skin tighter and improving the appearance of wrinkles.
This is a non-surgical procedure, so there is minimal recovery time.
You may notice some bruising and swelling, particularly where the liposuction took place.
You will be able to see results gradually and may become visible after a few weeks. Results will continue to improve over time.
You will be able to notice that your skin is thicker and you will have fewer lines, while cheeks and eye bags will not appear as sunken.

This causes new tissue to grow, and as a result, the skin begins to appear tighter, fuller and more youthful.
This is a suitable procedure for those who are wishing to improve the signs of ageing on their face.
