EATONTOWN, N.J., Sept. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American CryoStem Corporation (OTCQB:CRYO), a leading strategic developer, marketer and global licensor of patented adipose tissue-based cellular technologies for the Regenerative and Personalized Medicine industries, today announced the opening of three new adipose tissue (fat) collection centers at Dr. Park Avenue's NJ locations. Dr. Park Avenue is a leading provider of aesthetic and cosmetic services in the Tri-State area with locations in Brick Township, Franklin Lakes and Hoboken, New Jersey.
Dr. Park Avenue's newest center, conveniently located at 44 Hudson Place in Hoboken, is scheduled for its grand opening Saturday, September 28, 2013. In conjunction with the opening, Dr. Park Avenue will formally introduce American CryoStem's ATGRAFT™ fat storage service for patients interested in fat grafting as an alternative to artificial fillers by using their own stored fat tissue to undergo transfer procedures to the face, hands, breast and buttocks.
With one liposuction, patients can store their excess body fat as a natural filler for immediate or future use in cosmetic enhancement procedures. Fat transfers have been used for many years to fill in facial flaws, such as hollowed cheeks, sunken eyes, indented scars or to repair surgical defects. Today, new fat transfer techniques (also known as fat grafting) are used to augment many other areas of the body, including the hands, face, buttocks, biceps, triceps, and breasts. Consequently, demand for natural fillers is on the rise increasing the need for preserving fat tissue in a safe, secure storage environment.
Renowned Surgeon Dr. Paul Fondacaro, Founder and Medical Director of Dr. Park Avenue, stated, "I firmly believe that the future of cosmetic medicine is going to rely on the principles of fat storage. When a patient stores his or her own fat tissue, it allows us to plan ahead, set a schedule of grafts or transfers and optimize the patient's procedures to achieve the patient's desired results. All of this is accomplished with a single tissue harvest, which allows multiple layered fat transfers in the future, eliminating the need for further liposuctions. Moreover, by teaming with American CryoStem, we are assured that our patients' tissue is stored in an FDA registered, cGMP compliant human tissue processing and cryo-storage facility that promotes the highest possible clinical standards."
Customers of American CryoStem's ATGRAFT™ tissue storage services also have additional opportunities to further process portions of their clinically prepared adipose tissue samples for future uses in Regenerative Medicine therapies and/or to create personalized skin care products made from their own adult stem cell growth factors.
Physicians that would like to offer ATGRAFT™ tissue storage services to patients should call 732-747-1007 or email email@example.com for an informational kit.
