Due to this treatment is “autologous”, which means that the biological samples come from our own body, there is not rejection at all and therefore the derived side-effects are minimal or non-existent. The only side-effects are related to the mere administration of the treatment such as local redness or irritation and rashes, no more.
These side-effects normally disappear after a few hours after the treatment.
A local anaesthesia is administered so there is not local pain, not even after its effects have disappeared.
However, the typical contraindications are: breastfeeding, pregnancy, inflammatory and acute allergic processes.
There are a few conclusive clinical trials which discard that the use of SVF with pluri-potential mesenchymal stem cells from fat tissue may create any type of tumours since these cells cannot convert themselves into tumour cells and biologically they don’t have anything to do with them because they belong to different cell lines. Therefore this possibility is totally discarded.
