Dr. Kai-Uwe Schlaudraff, a plastic surgery specialist from Geneva, Switzerland, recently addressed the topic of therapies based on stem cell enriched fat transfer before members of the Cell Society's 1st Annual Clinical Meeting.

Dr. Kai-Uwe Schlaudraff (, a plastic surgeon who performs a wide range of plastic surgery procedures in Geneva, delivered a presentation on the topic of stem cell enriched fat transfer at the Cell Society's 1st Annual Clinical Meeting at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa in La Jolla, California. The meeting was held February 18 and 19, 2011.

"The desire to know more about the use of stem and regenerative cells in cosmetic medicine is widespread," says Dr. Schlaudraff. "Practitioners, patients and policy-makers worldwide must take an educated approach to weighing the benefits and risks of utilizing these therapies."

The Cell Society's meeting was designed to do exactly that by bringing global thought leaders like Dr. Schlaudraff together to educate physicians about the numerous "clinical applications of adult stem and regenerative cell therapies" which are being put into practice worldwide.

"More and more, I am integrating stem cell enriched fat transfer techniques when performing liposuction and bodysculpting procedures in Geneva, Switzerland," notes Dr. Schlaudraff. "Using cell enriched fat grafting, volume can be added to areas of the body and face including buttocks, breasts, cheeks, lips and hands. I also use this therapy to improve the appearance of scars and other skin imperfections."

Dr. Schlaudraff's presentation, "Autologous Fat Grafting to the Breast - Use, Safety, Risks," was well received as a key entry in the Breast & Soft Tissue Application portion of the Cell Society meeting. The event was jointly sponsored by the Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower and Medical Education Advocates.

"While any discussion of fat grafting can get quite technical, I've put the information I think would benefit patients the most on my website," adds Dr. Schlaudraff. "Resources there include a diagram of the surgical procedure, a list of areas that can benefit from treatment, and a detailed description of how cell enriched fat grafting improves upon the traditional technique."

Dr. Schlaudraff has been a major contributor in many clinical research projects with a focus on growth factors and fatty tissue, as well as adipose-derived stem and regenerative cells and fat grafting to the breast. He is a key opinion leader whose work has been published in well-respected clinical journals worldwide.
