Positively reinvest fat in yourself

WINTER PARK, Fla., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Each year, millions of Americans make New Year's resolutions to get in better shape and improve their looks. Now, medical technology might provide another option to reach body image goals: investing your fat.

Employing specialized techniques for extracting, storing and grafting fat tissue, Dr. Jeffrey Hartog, an expert in using adipose tissue for medical procedures, is able to use patients' own fat to enhance breasts, improve scars, diminish the signs of aging and provide breast cancer survivors with an alternative to implants after lumpectomy and mastectomy procedures.

"People reinvest things that mean a lot to them, like time and money," said Hartog, director of Winter Park, Fla.'s The Bougainvillea Clinique. "Why shouldn't you be able to reinvest something for yourself that creates a positive out of something that doesn't make you happy?"

As improvements in the use of fat for medical procedures continue to develop, so do Hartog's available procedures and options for patients to reinvest their body fat. Upon using gentle liposuction to remove fat from areas such as the thighs or abdomen, it is then injected in very small amounts in the desired areas, allowing the body to quickly build and attach the blood vessel networks needed for the fat tissue to survive.

Hartog's first passion with using fat is assisting women diagnosed with breast cancer to reconstruct their breasts. His wife, Michelle, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 and they saw outstanding results with the innovative autologous fat transfer procedure, or AFT.

Another available technique, known as Nanofat Skin Rejuvenation Therapy, uses body fat's stem and regenerative calls to restore and maintain a person's youthful appearance. Similar to the AFT procedure, nanofat therapy adds a step by liquefying fat into a very fine consistency. This provides smooth restoration to fine lines in the neck and face, wrinkles and decolletage areas like under the eye.

"Fat's versatility allows patients to refine and customize their results with greater precision," Hartog continued. "Another added benefit of reinvesting fat is the virtually scarless results."

A leading authority on using fat to improve looks, Hartog and The Bougainvillea Clinique give patients the option to reinvest their stored fat for future use through the FDA-registered Liquid Gold lipobank. Stored fat, a long-term and natural resource, offers patients a much more economical alternative to frequent use of artificial fillers and allows patients to repeatedly reinvest in themselves.

Located in central Florida, The Bougainvillea Clinique is the premier destination for people seeking the best in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Jeffrey M. Hartog, M.D., and his wife, Michelle Hartog, R.N., established these facilities with the goal of improving people's quality of life through state-of-the-art plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures. The practice is adjacent to the Aesthetic Surgery Center of Winter Park, a free-standing state- and federally licensed surgical center that caters to all client needs.
