What is Autologous Fat Grafting?
This procedure involves extracting unnecessary fat from abdomen, thighs, buttocks using a centrifuge to extract only fat to be grafted into the face. It can improve the overall dimension of the face which amplifies anti-aging to give you a younger looking face.
Recommended for those who
  1. 1. Have a sunken or uneven forehead
  2. 2. Have sunken eyelids
  3. 3. Wish to make their flat nose higher
  4. 4. Wish to amplify thin cheeks
  5. 5. Need to improve smile lines
  6. 6. Wish to correct an inverted triangle shaped face
  7. 7. Wish to look younger

Types of Autologous Fat Grafting

The main purpose of Autologous Fat Grafting is the three-dimensional look!

Autologous Fat Grafting is not only about filling the sunken area but it is also about making three-dimensional look on the face. Wonjin’s Fat Grafting can improve the overall dimension of the face which amplifies anti-aging to give you a younger looking face.

What is SmartPrep2 Autologous Fat Grafting?

SmartPrep2 Fat Graft has reduced the feeling of implant and improved the low engraftment of autologous fat grafting. It transplants only healthy fat and stem cell with an excellent engraftment. It maintains the transplanted fat as the blood vessels are generated and high nutrients are supplied to increase the vitality of the fat cells. Therefore, rejuvenation effect is expected with the effect of stem cell that regenerates skin.

Process of SmartPrep2 Fat Grafting

Stem Cell Fat Grafting extracts fat and fat cells for grafting and extracting stem cell purposes respectively. Then, the pure fat is extracted without being exposed to air using Lipokit and mix with extracted stem cell for grafting using Sceldis.

What is Stem Cell Fat Graft?

It is a complex procedure that amplifies engraftment by purifying and concentrating pure growth factors from extracted and separated fat cell. Especially, the fat from abdomen, hip, and thigh contains large amount of mesenchymal stem cells. This procedure is suitable for modern people these days because it is possible to extract a lot of cells without cultivation, cell deformation, and simple collection process that allows a quick recovery.

Stem cell used for Stem Cell Fat Graft

Stem Cell Fat Grafting does not affect the gene modification because the procedure only involves extraction of high concentrated stem cell. It does not require cultivation process because it contains adult stem cell. This allows the growth of nearby tissues with nutrition supply that enhances the skin elasticity and improves wrinkle.

What is Harvest-Jet Fat Graft?

It is procedure using the most advanced device to improve the regular fat grafting with low fat engraftment. It has improved the engraftment by using Water Jet to suck the fat cells in circular shape, and dual filtering by using the LipoCollector.

Process of Harvest-Jet Fat Graft

It sucks the fat on abdomen and thigh using the Water Jet and by dual filtering, healthy and pure fat cell can be injected on desired area.

Regular Fat Graft VS Harvest-Jet Fat Graft

Harvest-Jet significantly improves the problem of low engraftment of regular fat graft and able to separate the fiber and other debris automatically, with healthy and fresh fat. Therefore, it provides satisfying result with healthy fat.

Regular Fat Graft VS Harvest-Jet Fat Graft
Regular Fat Graft Harvest-Jet Fat Graft
Liposuction Damaged fat tissue due to direct contact of fat extraction Able to extract fat in circular shape without tissue damage by using Water Jet
Fat Separation Excessive cell damage due to high pressure high speed using the centrifugal separator Less tissue damage using low pressure and special filter
Air Contact Oxidation occurs due to air contact during collecting and centrifugal process Less oxidation occurs by processing collecting and filtering at the same time and inject right away
Side Effects Possibility of oil cyst and calcification due to damaged fat cells Low possibility of oil cyst and calcification and less damage on area where fat was collected

What is Lipokit Fat Graft?

Lipokit Fat Graft is the procedure using the equipment that can perform liposuction and centrifugation at the same time. This lowers the chance of infection because fat is extracted without air contact. It removes free oil which is responsible for the survival of fat and this allows cohesive fat grafting.

Regular Fat Graft VS Harvest-Jet Fat Graft
Category Lipokit Fat Graft Regular Fat Graft
Capacity of Syringe (Collectable Fat) 50cc 10cc
Air Contact Able to perform liposuction with 1 centrifuge Only able perform simple function of centrifuge
Liposuction Time Fast Slow
Probability of Infection Low probability of infection due to low less air contact High probability of infection due to high air contact
Survival rate High Low
Centrifugation Condition Possible to Differentiate Free Oil (Patent) Contain Free Oil in Fat Tissue

Process of Lipokit Fat Grafting

Lipokit Fat Grafting extracts fat and fat cells for grafting and extracting stem cell purposes respectively. Then, the pure fat is extracted without being exposed to air using Lipokit and mix with extracted stem cell for grafting using Sceldis.
