In the recent past years there has been an explosion of physicians claiming they are injecting stem cells with the promise of slowing the aging process or improving skin quality or breast size. In most cases, the amount of true stem cells being injected is almost imperceptible and of little clinical benefit. Most of the time they are injecting either blood plasma taken from the patient or are attempting to harvest a small amount of stem cells from fat that has been removed with liposuction. These attempts to market stem cells are hype in most cases or as in the case cited below, involve altered cells that have not been proven safe to use by the FDA. I caution you from believing the claims and waiting until these treatments have been approved by a national organization rather that believing the claims made in advertising pieces. The citation is below.
