Our regenerative and stem cell specialist, Mr Ali Ghanem, is one of the world’s leading specialists in the new area of regenerative and stem cell medicine. Complementing his international multi-disciplinary background in Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Mr Ghanem was one of the first graduates of UCL’s prestigious PhD programme in Developmental and Stem Cell Biology. He translates the regenerative properties of stem cells and progenitor cells isolated from a patient’s own tissue into aesthetic regenerative solutions customised to the aesthetic area, the clients’ conditions and results desired.
The discovery of multi-potent stem cells in 2002 opened the gate to a new era of ‘regenerative medicine and surgery’, where stem cells harvested from a patient’s own fat tissue are used as a minimally-invasive alternative for anti-aging treatments. Stem cells suitable for use in clinical applications have been subsequently harvested from virtually every human tissue with adipose tissue, circulating blood, cartilage, skin and hair follicle being the most readily available sources of stem cells for clinical applications.
Progenitor and stem cells function in two ways:
- They are able to divide and differentiate into different types of specialized cells (tissue repair and regeneration role)
- As platelets, they are a rich source of growth factors and regenerative molecules that
enhance the body’s healing process. From treating signs of aging in the face, to hair loss and
chronic wounds, these innovative treatments work by taking progenitor and or stem cells from
one part of the body and injecting them into another part, such as the face, breasts, scalp,
limbs etc with the final desired outcome ranging from volume restoration, scar remodelling,
hair growth, accelerated healing, pain control or amelioration of a chronic disease process.
