Stem Cells Q&A

How are stem cells gathered and refined?

Stem cells can renew/regenerate themselves, and some can also create cells that form different tissues. Not all of the cells in your body have this availability, which is why stem cells are so highly sought after.


Stem cells come from four primary sources:


  • Human embryos
  • Adult stem cells from tissues like fat or bone marrow
  • Adult cells that have been reprogrammed to perform as stem cells
  • Blood from an umbilical cord


Stem cells go through a stringent process of harvesting and refining. The specific steps depend on the type of stem cells used, but by the time these cells are ready to be used in plastic surgery or medical aesthetics applications, they’re in a clean and concentrated form.  

What are some ways I might benefit from stem cell therapy?

Stem cells can build new tissue, and also work to reduce inflammation in the treatment area. Some of the potential uses of stem cells in plastic surgery and medical aesthetics include:


  • Scar reduction
  • Fat transfer
  • Breast augmentation
  • Facelifts
  • Facial contouring
  • Skin rejuvenation


If your treatment goals align well with the benefits of stem cells, Dr. Sasaki will discuss your options during your one-on-one consultation. 

Am I a good candidate for stem cell therapy?

Many people can expect wonderful results from stem cell therapy. This approach uses human tissue to promote cellular growth and development, essentially giving your body a boost in its natural regenerative abilities. 


It’s important to work with a trained and experienced medical professional when pursuing stem cell treatments. Not only do Dr. Sasaki and his team use stem cells created through the highest safety standards, but they also have the skills needed to make the most of these powerful treatments.
