Lead Equine Veterinary Surgeon Dr Tim Watson Explains Lipogems Equine
How did Lipogems® begin?
Pioneered by Dr. Carlo Tremolada, a renowned Italian maxillofacial plastic surgeon, who was searching for a way to create a smoother, more viscous fat graft for filling defects and creating natural volumetric enhancement of the face
Unexpectedly, his patients experienced a significant decrease in bruising and inflammation normally associated with these procedures, and demonstrated substantial regenerative effects on the underlying tissues.
Subsequently, scientific colleagues at the University of Miami, the Pasteur Institute in Paris, and UCLA, have identified and validated unique regenerative characteristics within the Lipogems®.
The Lipogems® system received FDA 510(k) clearance in the U.S in December of 2014 and later reviewed in November 2016.
The efficient closed-loop device, initially used only in plastic and reconstructive surgery, showed remarkable benefits for orthopaedic indications, opening enormous market potential. Equines within the UK can now be treated by veterinary surgeons trained by the Lipogems® Equine and Lipocast Biotech UK team. To read more about the technology of Lipogems® click here.

How is Lipogems® different?
The Lipogems® system is a sterile single-use medical device intended for the closed-loop processing and transferring of autologous adipose tissue in a single surgical step. Lipogems® is a non-expanded and micro-fragmented adipose tissue graft that is injected into damaged areas of the body in order to provide a cushion and structural support while promoting a healing environment. The Lipogems® process preserves the natural healing properties of adipose tissue by maintaining the fat’s Vascular Stromal Niches.
The micro-fragmentation of the tissue is key to the treatment process as it triggers the body's own damage response mechanism.
Lipogems has been directly translated from human application to veterinary application
- No lab culturing
- No cell isolations
- Lipogems is a complete tissue structure graft
There are no other comparative treatments that trigger the body's own damage response mechanism in a single step non-enzymatic, no-centrifuge procedure that is completed on-site, under an hour either in surgery for small animals or under standing sedation for equines.
