Leneva Fat Grafting Foot 

Introducing LenevaTM a long-lasting fat grafting treatment for fat pad atrophy and pressure sores 

The Apex Foot & Ankle Institute in Thousand Oaks, California and Dr. Ryan M. Sherick are excited to be among the first practices in Southern California to offer LenevaTM, a new fat grafting system that arrived in the United States in November 2019.

This natural injectable product uses sterilized human fat tissue (known as adipose tissue), which is placed within a cellular framework. When placed under a pressure point, LenevaTM not only provides cushioning but also serves as a support structure for your body to generate new fat cells. This combination of transplanted fat and your body’s own fat cells forms a stable cushion that can offer long-lasting comfort over months to even years.

What happens during a Leneva™ treatment?

During a Leneva™ treatment, a minimally invasive procedure begins with local anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. A small incision is made in the treatment area, typically near the source of concern. Leneva™, a natural fat grafting system, is then injected into the area, providing support and cushioning. This process can be used for various medical and aesthetic purposes. Once the Leneva™ is in place, the incision is closed, and recovery begins. The procedure is quick, typically lasting an hour or less, and patients can often return to their daily activities with minimal downtime. The body gradually incorporates the Leneva™, offering long-lasting relief or enhancement.

How is Leneva™ different from other
treatments for fat pad atrophy?

Leneva™ stands out from other treatments for fat pad atrophy due to its natural approach. Unlike synthetic fillers, Leneva™ employs purified human fat tissue to create a more authentic and lasting result. It integrates seamlessly with the body, providing cushioning and support. This approach often results in a softer, more natural appearance. Other treatments may require multiple sessions, but Leneva™ typically offers long-lasting outcomes with just one treatment. Its versatility also sets it apart, as it can be used for various medical and aesthetic concerns. Leneva™ redefines the treatment of fat pad atrophy with its effectiveness, safety, and natural feel.
