EATONTOWN, N.J., Jan. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American CryoStem Corporation (OTCQB:CRYO), a leading biotech company in the field of Regenerative Medicine, is proud to announce that Eterna M.D. of Orlando, FL will be offering American CryoStem's new ATGRAFT™ fat storage service to their patients for future natural cosmetic enhancements.
By using the ATGRAFT™ fat storage service, Eterna M.D. patients can access selected sizes of their stored fat to undergo layered fat transfer procedures over time.
With this new service, a patient can undergo a standard liposuction and store their excess body fat as a natural biocompatible filler for a fuller, more natural look and feel for immediate or future use in cosmetic enhancement procedures. Demand for liposuction surgery has been on the rise and thanks to new technologies patients can make good use of their unwanted body fat resulting from a liposuction and save it for future procedures.
Fat transfers offer the most natural look and feel for aesthetic augmentation and corrective cosmetic procedures. An alternative to synthetic materials, patients can use fat from an undesired location to enhance a multitude of areas throughout their body. Storing a patient's fat tissue for cosmetic enhancements provides them with many benefits not available from a one-time fat transfer procedure. Patients can now have one liposuction and simply visit Eterna M.D. for multiple transfer procedures by using their stored tissue for more a pleasing, natural result.
"The wave of the future for cosmetic and regenerative medicine relies on fat transfer and storage. Having the ability to store the fat and retrieve it to be used either as "intelligent fillers" or for future Regenerative Medicine procedures since they are rich in growth factors and stem cells," stated Dr. Mercado, owner of Eterna M.D. "I firmly believe this the way of the future, to store your fat following liposuction procedures for future cosmetic procedures or to retrieve your stem cells from your own stored fat for clinical applications such as osteoarthritis and sports injury is a breakthrough in medicine."
American CryoStem's ATGRAFT™ tissue storage customers also have additional opportunities to further process portions of their clinically prepared adipose tissue samples for future uses in Regenerative Medicine therapies or to create personalized skin care products made from their own adult stem cells.
Physicians that would like to offer ATGRAFT(TM) tissue storage services to their patients should call 732-747-1007 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an informational kit.
