Doctor Credits Stem Cells For Restoring Woman's Shrinking Face

For more than 15 years, cosmetic surgeons have been performing fat transfer surgery to plump-up lips, cheeks, eyebrows, and temples, restoring volume lost in the normal process of aging.  More recently, fat transfer techniques have returned to the spotlight because of the abundant stem cell supply found in the body's layers of fat.  Stem cells have the potential to develop into more mature tissue including skin, bone, or fat components.  Dr. Kotlus says that these characteristics make fat "a valuable cosmetic and reconstructive building block for surgeons.  At the same time, many patients have gravitated toward fat transfer as opposed to synthetic materials because it is natural and has a negligible risk of rejection by the body."

Today, Emma smiles and tears form in her eyes when she recalls her experience with the procedure done more than 6 months ago.  "I look more like the person I'm supposed to be," she beams.  It's possible she may require further treatment if the disease becomes active again.  But for now she is pleased with her restored appearance.  She is especially happy that Dr. Kotlus agreed to perform the reconstruction free of charge.  "My insurance wouldn't cover the surgery because they said it was cosmetic.  But I wasn't trying to look younger or different.  I just wanted to look normal." Dr. Kotlus says he was touched by Emma's story and personality.  "This was a special circumstance and a special patient," he states.
