Lipogems is an award-winning FDA-cleared medical device that utilizes adipose tissue technology. This highly advanced and innovative technology uses your fat tissue to cushion and support areas that have been injured to aid your body in healing itself.
The Lipogems device gently processes adipose tissue taken from the abdomen or thigh areas. It is then precisely injected into the area of injury using ultrasound or X-ray guidance.
Fat has 100-500 times more reparative cells than other similar tissue in the body. Research has shown that as a person ages, their FAT maintains its reparative properties, unlike similar tissue, which may lose healing capacity with age.
When used in orthopedic medicine, Lipogems technology supports a healing environment to help repair, replace, reconstruct, and support damaged or injured tissues.

Lipogems are a safe and effective treatment option for orthopedic conditions and are FDA-cleared with many clinical studies.
Under local anesthesia, lipogems treatment is typically not painful. In a minimally invasive and immediate procedure, the physician will make a tiny puncture through your skin and collect a small amount of fat from either your midsection or “love handles.” You may experience mild to moderate swelling at the injection site.
Most patients see results within 2-3 months; however, some patients have reported improvement within a day after the procedure.
Because Lipogems is a newer procedure, it is not yet covered by insurance. Please contact our clinic to learn more about your financial options and ask specific insurance questions.
