General Surgery

In the field of general surgery, Lipogems® has been used as a valid approach for treating fecal incontinence. Cestaro et al. reported great improvement in incontinence score, thick- ness of the internal anal sphincter, and resting pressure in three patients treated with Lipogems® injection into the anal sphincter. The same encouraging results were obtained by other researchers.

In oncology, Lipogems® is useful and powerful when injected in atrophied tissue after radiotherapy. Promising results in terms of restoration of skin elasticity and thickness have been reported in patients who had head and neck surgery and breast reconstruction. Encouraging results also have been found in burn patients.
