- What is SmartPrep2 Breast Surgery?
- SmartPrep2 Breast Surgery is the advance procedure which has been enhanced from the previous fat grafting with low engraftment by adding stem cell extraction procedure to fat grafting procedure. This process involves extraction of patients’ own fat for breast augmentation, thus you can expect body contouring effect as well.
- Recommended for those who
- 1. Have extra fat on specific areas with flat chest
- 2. Are concerned about the engraftment and the maintenance of fat grafting
- 3. Are satisfied with the volume but has asymmetric size
- 4. Are concerned about the feeling of implant and being noticeable
- 5. Wish to restore firmness and volume
Types of SmartPrep2 Breast Surgery
SmartPrep2 Breast Surgery and Breast Fat Graft
Regular fat grafting has the disadvantage of low engraftment. Therefore, if large amount of fat is injected, it may cause deeper hollowness, sagginess and asymmetry on injected area. The advantage of stem cells is that it can be differentiated into any part of the body and cell with an excellent scar recovery and regeneration. Therefore, it is possible to maintain natural breast volume for a long time when the breast augmentation is done with stem cell.
|Comparison Category||SmartPrep2 Breast Augmentation||Breast Fat Grafting|
|Rate of Engraftment||High engraftment and blood vessel generation||Low engraftment|
|Number of Procedure||Less than 2 times||About 3 times|
|Possibility of Contamination||Less air contact contamination||Possibility of air contact contamination|
|Surgical Method||Perform both regular fat grafting and stem cell||Extract the fat and centrifuged to inject the fat|
|Effect||Skin elasticity/ Blood vessel and collagen generation/ Increase natural volume||Increase natural volume|
Features of SmartPrep2 Fat Grafting
Stem Cell can survive for 4 hours at room temperature!
Damaged Stem Cell by Normal Centrifugation!
During the normal centrifugation, it may lead to cell damage due to heat and contacting with air. It is important to choose the right device in order to prevent the stem cell damage. Therefore, Wonjin clinic uses up-to-date medical device to minimize stem cell damage.
|Unstable Process||Stable Process|
|-Number of alive cell is small
-Already differentiated cells during extraction process has no or minimal effect
|-Number of alive cell is large
-Healthy and lively cells will be regenerated in organ of human body and differentiate
Damaged Stem Cell by Normal Refrigeration!
During the normal refrigeration, stem cell gets damaged. Stem cells are recommended to be stored in minus 196 degrees liquid nitrogen for long term to prevent cell membrane damage reducing intracellular freezing. The satisfaction of stem cell fat grafting is higher than regular fat grafting but fresh cell can be reused for the 2nd session when needed.
The main function of stem cell is tissue regeneration, differentiation potential, improve immune function, growth factor activation, blood vessel regeneration, homing effect to regenerating the damaged area, multipotential cell which able to differentiate into variety tissues or organs, and self-renewal cell which to divide into increase the number of cells on its own. The high satisfaction can be expected only when the clinic is chosen for the stem cell procedure. Please consider the high quality of medical system, experienced surgeons, one on one specialized anesthesia system, surgery aftercare , and medical devices.
The Advantages of SmartPrep2 Breast Surgery
- You can expect semi-permanent effect by one time treatment.
- You can expect high survival rate than regular fat grafting by using healthy and young fat cells.
- You can expect close to no side effect by using your own tissue.
- You can expect natural feeling and shape, less pain and no massage required.
- You can expect better stability than regular fat grafting and lower infection and foreign body reaction than implant augmentation.
- You can expect close to no swelling and scar by using micro needle.
SmartPrep2 Breast Surgery Process
SmartPrep2 Breast Surgery is the advance procedure which has been enhanced from the previous fat grafting with low engraftment. Therefore, stem cell extraction is added to previous fat grafting procedure. After dividing the stem cell from the extraction process, it gets mixed with pure fat cell for the injection.
Why? Why would you choose Wonjin’s SmartPrep2 Breast Surgery?
Breast stem cell has great ability of cell differentiation with higher engraftment than the regular fat grafting. It is done by liposuction so extra fat can be removed and gain fuller breasts. The biggest advantage is natural feeling done by fat grafting and stem cell.
Quick return to daily activity? Because it is done by injection!
Breasts will appear natural on X-ray, CT, and other types of examination because the procedure uses own fat and stem cell. The breasts feel natural and it allows a quick return to daily activity with fast recovery because it is done by syringe injection.
Massage is unnecessary? Because it is safe with stem cell!
The procedure is done under local anesthesia and it is easier for those who are afraid of general anesthesia. We are using the FDA approved device which is proven for its safety and effectiveness. This procedure does not require a massage and maintains natural shape after surgery. It also reduces pain, bleeding, and nerve damages.
Looking natural? Because it is possible to breastfeed!
Stem cell breast augmentation does not use artificial implant and because it uses own fat, it does not affect mammary gland and breastfeeding.
What is Stem Cell?
Human Body is consisted of at least of 200 types and 60 trillion cells. Most cells are being used in its own tissue such as bone structure, nerve, and muscle but there are special cells that can differentiate into different tissue, and these are Stem Cells.
Stem Cells that are being used for SmartPrep2 Fat Grafting
SmartPrep2 Fat Grafting has nearly no gene modification since it is extracting highly concentrated stem cell with no developed stem cells included. Therefore, SmartPrep2 Fat Grafting helps around tissues to grow by providing nutrients to transplanted fat due to high concentration of growth factors, which lead to bring skin elasticity and wrinkle improvement effects.
