Regenerative therapy is an innovative process that utilizes an individual's own cells to promote healing within their body. Scientists have found that regenerative therapy permits the body to heal itself using adult stem cells that can be harvested from several areas on their body. At Jansen Plastic Surgery, we offer regenerative therapy for cosmetic purposes, as well as joint pain management. Our team has seen exciting improvements to patients' complexions, as well as a stark decrease in joint pain. Beginning with a consultation to discuss your concerns and medical history, one of our experienced physicians can create a regenerative therapy treatment plan for New Orleans, LA area men and women who desire a natural solution for pain management and skin rejuvenation.
Regenerative therapy uses Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) fat cells that are obtained from one of several locations in your body, typically the abdomen, hip, or thigh. Once we have safely aspirated the cells, we will concentrate them and inject them back into your body in the desired area. The face for facial rejuvenation, the knee,hip or base of thumb for arthritic joint problems. At Jansen Plastic Surgery, we most commonly treat arthritic joints, knees, hips, as well as the facial skin for cosmetic rejuvenation. The process may take up to an hour from the time of aspiration to the injection of the SVF.
Once your procedure has been completed, a member of our team will allow you to rest for a little while before leaving our facility. Before you leave to return home, a customized aftercare plan will be given to you to help your SVF harvest site heal quickly and without incident. You may be asked to return to Jansen Plastic Surgery for follow-up appointments so that our surgeons can check on the progress of your healing. Patients should carefully follow all post-procedure instructions to ensure a seamless recovery.

"When you are diagnosed with breast cancer, you have a lot of decisions to make. Lumpectomy? Mastectomy? Reconstruction? Immediate or delayed? Implants? Silicone or Saline? Using my own tissue? It can be very overwhelming! Dr. Tandon is patient, compassionate, knowledgeable and most importantly, extremely skilled in performing a variety of reconstruction procedures.Being a nurse with past experience in caring for patients with breast cancer was somewhat advantageous in sorting out my treatment and reconstruction options. I am also uniquely aware that surgical skill varies among surgeons. After diligent research, and my consultation with Dr. Tandon, I felt completely at ease with my decisions and confident that I had chosen the right team to provide me with the best breast reconstruction possible. The type of reconstruction we ultimately chose required an incredible amount of specialized surgical skill. I underwent bilateral skin and nipple sparing mastectomies with DIEP flap reconstruction and I could not be more pleased with my cosmetic results. Dr. Tandon is that rare combination of highly skilled surgeon combined with a kind compassionate bedside manner. I am forever grateful!"- M.E. / Google / Apr 30, 2019

Frequently Asked Questions
What About Rejection?

How Many Treatments?
As each patient is unique, we do not ensure that any number of treatments will cure your condition. However, we can inform you that in many cases, joints loss stabilizes and skin heals in as few as one treatment with regenerative therapy. Regardless, at your consultation, one of the Jansen Plastic Surgery physicians will create a customized treatment plan that is unique to your specific needs and concerns. Your plan may include one or several treatments, depending on your condition.
