Kerastem – Stem cell-enriched fat grafting for hair

Concept Clinic is the only clinic in Switzerland and one of the only three aesthetic surgery establishments in Europe to offer Kerastem to their patients. Fat grafting is an innovative hair restoration procedure, which can significantly reduce and prevent hair loss.

There is a real link between fat and hair growth. In fact, hair follicles are anchored in scalp fat which stimulates their growth. With age, the amount of fat decreases which in some individuals can cause extreme hair loss. With its method of injection of stem cell-enriched fat grafts, the Kerastem hair treatment makes it possible to nourish the scalp again and to regain a healthy head of hair using a natural implantation process.

Consultation and surgical procedure

During your consultation, Dr Schlaudraff will determine with you the nature of your alopecia and your expectations of the Kerastem hair restoration treatment. He will then analyse your donor area and your scalp.

Kerastem treatment is carried out in our modern and fully equipped surgical rooms, which meet with the highest standards of comfort, safety and hygiene. During the procedure under local anaesthesia, Dr Schlaudraff will perform a micro-liposuction of the previously defined donor area in order to remove the equivalent of a small quantity of adipose cells. He will repeat the operation for the extraction of stem cells present in your fat. Thanks to Kerastem technology, the adipose tissue is then purified and combined with regenerative stem cells, in real time, to avoid the cost of sending and treating cells outside the clinic. The cell-enriched fat is then injected into the scalp using a fine cannula. With local anaesthesia, the procedure is totally painless.

Recovery and results

Only one treatment is required to increase the hair count and thickness. However results are not instantaneous and only start to show after 4-6 months. The recovery time after a fat graft is very short. After one week, there are no visible marks on the skull. You will be able to resume your activities in less than 48 hours after the fat graft. After a few weeks, the bald area begins to cover itself. The hair regrowth is visible within four – six months following the procedure, and the final results appear between 6 to 12 months after the hair restoration.

Complementary procedures for fat grafting

To maximise regrowth and increase the hair count, Kerastem treatment can be combined with FUE hair transplantation (Follicular Unit Extraction).

Stem cell-enriched fat grafting is also used for other surgical treatments for the body, face or during reconstructive surgery.
