Dr. Coleman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Coleman "Sydney Reese Coleman is the physician who first observed and announced to the scientific community the amazing regenerative ability of fat grafts and the associated stem cells. Since 1987, he has developed procedures and instruments that utilize transplanted fat to not only fill bodies, but also to harness the powerful rejuvenating and reparative abilities of fat. He is a board certified plastic surgeon practicing in Manhattan and is an assistant clinical professor at New York University (NYU) Hansjörg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery and also at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC). The Coleman Technique and The Coleman Cannulas He is best known as the originator of a successful method for grafting fat. To describe his technique of fat grafting he trademarked the term LipoStructure® (alternatively referred to as Structural Fat Grafting, Coleman Fat Grafting or the Coleman Technique). The Coleman technique after 30 years continues to be the standard in fat grafting. Dr. Coleman's passion is to improve the instruments and techniques for fat grafting, adipose derived stem cells and adipose technologies. Dr. Coleman has just completed his third text on fat grafting :Fat Injections From Filling to Regeneration, is currently finishing his first electronic text on the Coleman Technique. Background Soon after his first successful attempts at fat grafting, he observed an improvement in the quality of aging or sun-damaged skin. Later he witnessed the reversal of pathological conditions after fat grafting of scarring, therapeutic radiation injury, scleroderma, steroid atrophy and other skin conditions. As such, your fat is a repair organ for the body, and moving fat into an area of your body can repair diseases and conditions. This is the basis of an entirely new approach to medicine and surgery in which your own body can be used to cure diseases and conditions rather than using drugs or invasive procedures. Sydney Coleman's Involvement in Regenerative Medicine and Surgery Since 1988, Dr. Coleman has given presentations on fat grafting at scientific meetings throughout the world and has published extensively. Dr. Coleman has just completed his third text on fat grafting :Fat Injections From Filling to Regeneration, is currently finishing his first electronic text on the Coleman Technique.. Sydney Coleman's Recent Research Pursuits Dr. Coleman is actively involved in research projects to quantify the regenerative ability of fat grafting and stromal vascular fractions in battle injuries. This research is sponsored by the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine Biomedical Translational Initiative at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC). Dr. Coleman has been collaborating with MTF (Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation), the country's largest tissue bank on Murine and more recently human clinical trials looking at the utilization of Human Acellular Adipose tissue. In 2015, he conducted the first human trials. In 2014, Dr. Coleman was awarded his first Lifetime Achievement by the ASPS Trustees'. It is the highest award given by the American Society of Plastic Surgery. His second was received this past July, at The Aesthetics Show in Las Vegas."
