Glad you're happy with what you got done. So am I. I saw a paper published a few months ago in Journal of Surgical Research "Cryopreservation of whole adipose tissue for future use in regenerative medicine". Just like they can freeze...
If you go back for another procedure you should have some fat banked. I had some banked after a lipo to the love handles. The following year I had some used on my face. I still have some in the cryo bank and I don't have to harvest...
Did you bank some of the fat too? We all need a little touch up to our hands, eyes, lips, etc. as we age. I got some fat banked. Next time I need to some for fat transfer I won't need to go through another harvest.
If you're getting a large amount of fat removed you should have some of it banked. Do the cryobanking of fat like they do the banking of stem cells from your baby. That way the young cells/tissue are available to you later. No need...
Don't forget to ask your doc about fat banking. I did that and ended up needing the fat for a minor reconstruction to my face after an accident. Can also be used for facial fullness, crows feet, lips, etc. I did mine through AdiCyte.
