The big scar is because they take an actual piece of fat about the size of your hand out. They said it's more effective in removing the stem cells then if they did the liposuction thing. They did explain it in more complex terms to me but i can't remember the exact wording.
It is a hell of a scar but she seems to be coping ok with it. She doesn't lick it touch it or even look at it and it's not red or inflamed at all so i'm assuming it's healing well.
The shaved bits are where the stem cells were injected (both knees, both elbows and one hip).
