Cosmetic Fat Bank
Cosmetic Fat Bank
First Cosmetic Fat Bank of Australia Incorporating
If you’re planning liposuction, store your fat for future cosmetic use. Use your own fat as a soft anti-ageing filler for the face and other areas.
Bank your fat
We are excited to announce that my practice has just launched Australia’s first commercial cosmetic fat cell storage bank. This is a major breakthrough in cosmetic surgery.
WHY COSMETIC FAT BANK?
The Cosmetic Fat Bank of Australia was developed to allow fat to be stored indefinitely for further cosmetic therapies.
The banking is a highly sophisticated process that involves cleaning, preparing and slowly freezing the fat to -190 C.
This installation has cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and I believe it will change the entire approach to the treatment of ageing.
The concept of removing fat from one part of the body and injecting it into another part of the body is one of the most exciting techniques and developments in the field of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery. By using liposuction techniques, fat can be harvested from one part of the body and then re-injected into another part of the body where it is needed.
The obvious advantage of fat is that it’s your own and therefore the body cannot react against it. More recently it has been shown that fat naturally contains fat stem cells that have beneficial effects. They can also be used for Joint Therapy.
Patients considering liposuction melbourne are now able to get a direct benefit in years to come from their own fat that would be removed. In the past the problem with using fat has always been that best results are obtained with multiple injections, as with any filler. This previously meant multiple sessions of taking fat as storing fat in a regular freezer is inaccurate and only a small percentage of the fat survives. Now multiple further treatments are possible with only one liposuction melbourne.
Fat Can Be Injected Into:
Face: Full-face rejuvenation with fat stromal / stem cells for general youthfulness of the skin or localised areas such as cheeks, lip folds, the lips or the eyebrows.
Hands: Rejuvenation by thickening the skin on the back of the hands.
Buttocks: for fuller volume and shaping.
Any other areas: such as the neck, areas of cellulite, scars and depressions or defect for elevation.
Patients who have had a Fat Transfer to Face area.
To carry out this procedure, Dr Lanzer uses two new devices: “The Adivive and the Cell brush”.
The Advive: is a fat preparation machine: it concentrates and purifies the fat so that it’s rich in Adipose (fat) Derived Stromal /Stem Cells (ADSC).
Using the Cell brush, Dr Lanzer can insert micro- droplets of fat under the entire face / skin to cause smoothing, firming and tightening, as well as returning a more youthful shape back to your face.

How does the Fat Bank work?
Fat is taken by liposuction, concentrated with the Adivive and then prepared for freezing in a special highly sterile biological cabinet. To ensure safety and precision, the fat is bar-coded so that one can be absolutely sure that at a later date their own fat is being reused.
The fat is Cryopreserved and frozen using a special slow freezing device that takes about 90 minutes. The fat is then placed in the ultra cold freezer for long-term storage. The freezer is -190C compared to a regular freezer of -20C.
We put the patient to sleep once and do the liposuction. Get the fat out once and have as much as we require for later injections.
Fat is harvested from patients via liposuction melbourne before being drained and cleaned. Protectants will then be added to the lipids before being put into a slow freeze.
When we are talking about Breast reduction via liposuction, liposuction can usually be expected to provide no more than a 55 percent reduction in breast size. Women who require more than a 55 percent in breast reduction size may be happier with the results of traditional surgical breast reduction surgery despite the unsightly scars connected with the excision of skin and breast tissue. Breast reduction by liposuction will produce smaller result of the breasts that a woman had before liposuction. One can expect the breast reduction result to be significantly smaller, to be elevated and virtually to result in no scars. However, the breasts’ overall shape will be quite similar to their shape before liposuction.
All photographs represent one person’s experience, and results may vary for each patient. All photographs are of actual patients of Dr Lanzer. The visible change in these photographs has occurred as a result of the procedure/s undertaken. Best results are obtained when the procedure is combined with a balanced diet and exercise.
Some before and after photos shown are not exact, in that they vary in light, contrast, clothing, background, distance from camera, hairstyle and make-up.
We offer a FREE, No Obligation Cosmetic Surgery Consultation and a detailed explanation of the procedure.
Dr Lanzer can email all patients a detailed consent form which provides information related to the surgery. This information is made available to all patients before surgery, allowing enough time for the patient to ask any questions they may have.
