Dr. Broadway @ bodevolve is the first surgeon in Denver to offer his patients the option of fat cell preservation. This “sci fi” technique, that has taken off in Europe, allows a young patient to remove fat cells today during their VASER lipo procedure, store the fat through cryopreservation, and transfer the young fat cells back into the desired area of the body later in life.
There are a number of good reasons to store your fat for future use, not only for cosmetic treatments, but also post cancer reconstruction, and wound care. The fat you remove today will be younger, stronger and more viable than fat removed in later years. This option is far more appealing because it’s your own tissue and not foreign material, allowing for less rejection.
During your Denver lipo procedure, Dr. Broadway will remove the fat and adipose tissue from the desired area with ultrasound technology. Once aspirated, it will be immediately shipped to a facility in Texas, where it is processed and preserved until you are ready to inject it back into the body.
Banked fat can be used at any time to freshen up a previous cosmetic procedure, such as fat transfer to the face, without having to go through the lipo surgery and recovery again. Potential future uses of banked fat that are being researched and studied today include: spinal cord injuries, muscle disorders, heart attacks, kidney damage, and sport related injuries. The fat taken today could potentially help save your life in the future.

Fat grafting, or fat transfer has an extensive history, and has been performed in both plastic and reconstructive surgery practices for over 100 years. Utilizing fat over other materials such as dermal fillers, and buttock or breast implants, offers many advantages to patients:
Dr. Broadway has offered his patients standard fat transfer procedures for many years now, and has seen very successful results. But with science and research continuing to advance at a high speed pace, studies are now showing that fat transfer surgeries that include cell-enriched fat, can offer patients longer lasting, more durable results.
Dr. Broadway is proud to offer his Denver plastic surgery patients this advanced piece of equipment that cleans, and preps the fat to be re injected into the face, breasts, buttocks or scars caused from traumatic injury. Cell-enriched fat grafting allows Dr. Broadway to eliminate any unwanted debris including water, and tumescent fluid. When these” clean” fat cells are re injected, it is believed that they can provide more oxygen and nutrients, and integrate more successfully with the surrounding tissue. Patients will retain more of the fat, offering a better result.
