Stem Cells and Plastic Surgery


According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), patients should be wary of claims regarding the efficacy of stem cells in plastic and reconstructive surgery procedures. While some studies have been conducted on stem cell use for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation, claims that they can be used for breast enlargement, facelift and other more advanced procedures are not backed by any scientific research and, in fact, run contrary to existing evidence on the efficacy of stem cells.

There is no doubt the stem cells may one day prove very useful in plastic and reconstructive procedures, but that day is not yet here. If you are looking for effective techniques that offer time-tested and reliable results, the best thing to do is to work with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can customize a procedure to meet your exact needs.
