Dr. Shakhov always knew that with the advent of stem cell research, plastic surgery would benefit from it, in fact, he has been at the forefront, with many years of research, both in Russia and Europe. The use of stem cells as a mean to revive the process of regeneration in our own body, was certainly a very attractive proposition. When Dr. Shakhov was in Russia the Soviet leaders were actively seeking ways to prolong their lives and stay longer in power. Another important fact was that breast implants were scarce and expensive in Russia, and plastic surgeons sought ways to enhance women’s breast using fat transfer.

Dr. Shakhov know that body fat contains adult stem cells, along with other regenerative cells. Dr. Shakhov uses fat grafts in the face in order to rejuvenate the skin and adding volume.

Instead of cutting and stretching the skin, the new treatment involves taking stem cells from fat and flabby body parts (usually the abdomen, thighs or buttocks) and are injected to fill the patient’s face, chest or hands. Because the fat contains stem cells, it triggers the blood vessel and tissue growth.
