How do we store your fat? – Before & After The Procedure
In order to store your fat it must first be collected via a liposuction procedure. It is then cleaned either using the Adivive machine or a Puregraft bag. When your fat is cleaned in the Adivive machine, it is placed in to a special syringe and spun in a centrifuge. This process works to separate the fat from the tumescent fluid and fatty oils. The oil and fluid are discarded, leaving the pure concentrated fat to be re-injected or stored.
The other alternative generally used for higher quantities of fat is the Puregraft bag. This is a bag that the fat is injected in to after being harvested from an area of the body. The bag itself contains a filter which allows the tumescent fluid and oils to be separated in to a waste bag attached. This is then removed and the Puregraft bag will contain your concentrated fat for reinjection or storage, or both. Your fat is then processed in our fat bank hood, a pressurised sterile environment. The fat is stored at below 190 degrees Celsius. This means that it needs to be treated with a couple of additives to ensure that the fat cells are not damaged during this freezing process. These are calculated using the fat bank online registration system. The bags and vials that the fat is stored in are all labelled using barcodes specific to your file.
These are stored in a particular box or slot in the fat bank which is allocated to you. Like in the supermarket, we use a barcode scanner when placing your vials or bags of fat in to the bank and when we are taking them out of the bank, which ensures you are receiving your own fat.
