Question Stem Cell Facelift

Hello, Has anybody had The Stem Cell Facelift that was shown on Inside Edition? From what I've read it is different than getting fat transfer to the face, which have been around for a long time and are temporary, up to 5 years? And is there any doctors in Florida doing them. I read Suzanne Sommers is getting one this Month.. Anyone??? Thanks!!!!!

As per an expert PS researcher:

"The “stem cell facelift,” uses a patient’s own stem cells from their stomach fat, processing it somehow to extract the stem cells, then re-mixing them with some fat and injecting into the face. It’s touted as a “non surgical facelift” because it involves only injections and no cutting. It costs about $5,000 and takes about an hour under local anesthesia. Recovery is about a week. Sometimes the stem cells generate new tissue in the face that is tighter and younger-looking. Sometimes it does not work at all. There’s little chance that the patient might reject the cells because they’re from the patient and not a donor. Some of the before and after photos look like this works, however upon closer inspection they’re altered photos. If they had the procedure or a traditional face lift or not cannot be verified as well."

Sommers is always trying to act like she lives a healthy lifestyle and uses noninvasive measures to upkeep her appearance. These supposedly including a good diet, vitamins, natural injections, and supplements. The reality is she has had several rhinoplastys, a traditional facelift, lip injections, brow lift, fillers, fat grafting, and blepharoplasty.

Even if a stem cell facelift were to help, all they are doing is adding volume... that's not a facelift. If all you want is volume, Juvederm can accomplish that.

If Suzanne Sommers is getting one, it's just so she can claim it's a "natural" remedy. As Robyne pointed out, Sommers is being deceitful.
