Stromal vascular fraction (SVF) at our plastic surgery office in Phoenix, AZ is performed through an innovative harvesting technique (liposuction) of stem cells with varied growth factors from your own fat tissue. Your growth factors are vital to your everyday health as they influence bodily activities, such as handling inflammations, causing cells to die or grow, or trigger specialized cells to perform particular actions in their respective locations. Our board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Carlos Mata, can provide stromal vascular fraction therapy as an application of stem cells to help generate and repair damaged tissues. Researchers have found that lipoaspirate contains different kinds of cells that may be used for fat grafting, and thus produces better cosmetic outcomes like improved texture, volume, and viability of regenerated cells.
"I had two procedures done earlier this year by Dr. Mata. The tummy tuck was in January 2016 and following after in February, thigh lift. After working out so many years, it was the excess skin and fat I had removed. For all my future procedures and for friends and family, I definitely recommend Dr. Mata. Growing up with physicians in my family ( my mother was a Pediatrician), he has a wonderful disposition very reminiscent of the days when doctors cared and took all the time you needed to address concerns. Dr. Mata also made sure I was mentally prepared for the procedures and was 100% transparent with what I can expect. It's not a form of weight loss, but body sculpting. He has a very nurturing way about him as well. My healing experience has been the most positive under his care and the care of the staff. You are given written directions and the nurses will answer any questions you have. After the procedures, of course, new clothes feel great in smaller sizes, but it's not seeing the unwanted skin and fat, always getting larger sizes to disguise my trouble spots that brings me happiness. I have no regrets. I highly recommend Dr. Mata and I'm so grateful. My arms are next! :-)"- L.N. / Google / Jul 06, 2016

Ideal candidates for stromal vascular fraction should be in overall good health, have excess fatty tissue to be harvested for use, and have a viable body region for cell regeneration. At a personalized, private consultation, Dr. Mata can discuss whether or not stromal vascular fraction is a viable option for your specific case. He can also explain in detail how the process works, risks, benefits, and more.
What To Expect
The expectation of stromal vascular fraction is that this is a regenerative process that accelerates wound healing, formation of new bold vessels, and enhances generation of cells to act as fillers in procedures like breast enlargement, reconstructive surgeries, scar revision, and skin rejuvenation. The healing process for this procedure takes about 2 months.
