Fat banks … Forget money, now you can take your fat to the bank. Yep, in Australia people are having fat sucked out of them and stored in a fat bank -- which they will later have injected into them to fight the signs of aging.
According to Melbourne cosmetic surgeon and dermatologist, Dr. Daniel Lanzer, “Fat banking is a highly sophisticated process that involves cleaning, preparing and slowly freezing the fat to -310 degrees Fahrenheit … I believe it will change the entire approach to the treatment of aging.” Seems the fat is purified and then inserted in “micro-droplets” under the skin to help with smoothing, firming and toning -- especially in the face. “The concept of removing fat from one part of the body and injecting it into another part of the body is one of the most exciting techniques and developments in the field of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery,” said Dr. Lanzer.
