Let’s face it: aging is tough. Among the many challenges we face as we age, slowing metabolism and joint pain are perhaps the hardest to deal with. This gives rise to a sedentary lifestyle, and a vicious cycle of decreased physical activity and increased weight. Typically, a patient would have to address these issues with two separate specialists. That would mean more costs, and more downtime.

Enter LipoRe: an innovation pioneered by GIOSTAR Chicago, that harnesses the power of awake liposuction and the regenerative capabilities of stem cells in one procedure. 

How Does LipoRe Work?

Total body rejuvenation and cosmetic fat reduction provide patients relief from orthopedic and other degenerative conditions, along with the aesthetic benefits of body contouring services. LipoRe provides patients with a “one-stop-shop” experience, in which can alleviate joint pain while trimming unwanted fat from various parts of their body. LipoRe leverages groundbreaking lab techniques developed by regenerative medicine pioneer (and GIOSTAR Chairman and Co-Founder) Dr. Anand Srivastava, along with the expertise of renowned plastic surgeonDr. Michael Gellis. 

LipoRe is performed in our in-office surgical suite. Since no general anesthetic or IV is administered, the patient is awake, relaxed and numbed. During the procedure, the surgeon will make small incisions and use a cannula to extract excess fat. At the same time, the patient’s adipose is extracted to harvest the stem cells.

Upon extraction, the adipose tissue is sent to GIOSTAR Chicago’s state of the art in-house laboratory. A recovery garment is worn home. Patients may experience a few days of numbness in the extraction area, or minor leakage of pink fluid from the area of fat extraction. This is the tumescent that we use. Slight swelling can last a few weeks, as can a small bruise in the area of cannula insertion. Patients are usually back to work in 2-3 days, depending on their activity level.
