This is very interesting but similar to that other thread along these lines I think calling them "stem cell implants" are deceiving. If you lipo'd a bunch of fat out of someone middle aged or older I think the amount of stem cells that could be harvested from that would be insignificant.

But more of a concern I have is if someone has that much extra fat on them to suck out, they probably need to diet/exercise to get to a normal weight first before they consider augmenting another area of their body.

I also wonder how long it really lasts, as far as firmness and maintaining shape/form.

It's tough to say. You know they always drum these things up to make them sound better than they really are. I remember when Radiesse first came out they were trying to say it lasted 5 to 7 years LOL yeah right!

Thanks for the giggle about Radiesse, la_angel! :D

Are these available yet and if so where?

I know it's being done in NY, and the article states it has been performed in Miami.
