Importance The use of autologous fat transfer (AFT) or lipofilling for correcting contour deformities is seen as one of the major breakthroughs in reconstructive plastic surgery. Its applications in facial reconstructive surgery have been of particular interest owing to the prospect of achieving autologous reconstruction by a minimally invasive approach. However, its unpredictability and variable degree of resorption have limited its utility and much skepticism still exists regarding its efficac...

Background:Unpredictable volume maintenance in the long term is a major limitation of autologous fat grafting. Objectives:The authors compared results of autologous lipotransfer to the face with or without enrichment of fat with the stromal vascular fraction (SVF). Methods:Thirty patients with asymmetric depletion of facial volume were included in a prospective study. Patients were randomly assigned to undergo a single session of autologous fat transfer with washed adipose tissue (control group)...

Learning Objectives:After reading this article, the participant should be able to: 1. Understand the theory and principles behind successful avascular fat transfer; 2. Apply these principles into techniques that yield safe and successful fat grafting operations; 3. Identify the well-established indi

Summary Introduction Options for breast reconstructions enclose autologous tissue transfers or implants. Fat grafting is gaining more interest in this specific field of breast surgery. This study concentrates on the technique and aesthetic results of breast reconstruction with fat grafts combined with implants, in women who have undergone total mastectomy. Methods Breast reconstructions (n = 23) was performed using a protocol of intratissular expansion with serial deflation-lipofilling. In order...

BACKGROUND: Autologous free fat graft outcomes are not always predictable, and variables that can potentially influence fat graft retention are still not well understood or investigated. The purposes of this study were to assess fat graft retention in the management of craniofacial contour deformities and to identify possible predictive factors of this retention. METHODS: A prospective analysis was conducted using consecutive patients with unilateral craniofacial contour deformities who underwen...

Abstract Objective The fatty tissue regenerative properties have already been used to correct secondary scars (mastectomy, HIV lipodystrophy), resulting in improved elasticity and tissue quality. However there has been limited experience in treating the sequela of head and neck cancer treatment using fat tissue grafting. The objective of this study was to perform a preliminary evaluation of the injection of autologous fat (IAF) technique, for the sequelae treatment in head and neck cancer patien...

Summary Background Breast reconstruction involves the use of autologous tissues or implants. Occasionally, microsurgical reconstruction is not an option because of insufficient donor tissues. Fat grafting has become increasingly popular in breast surgery. The challenge with this technique is how to reconstruct a stable and living "scaffold" that resembles a breast. Methods Breast reconstruction (n = 7) was performed using intratissular expansion with serial deflation–lipofilling sessions. Mean a...

Summary Background Patients with congenital or acquired deformities always need fat graft at least twice to remodel facial contour. The purpose of this study was to objectively evaluate the outcomes of the first and second fat grafts for Romberg syndrome by using three-dimensional (3D) volumetric analysis. Method A retrospective study was conducted using the medical records of 13 patients with Romberg disease who were treated with fat graft twice for facial filling. Patient and surgeon satisfact...

BackgroundAutologous fat grafting (AFG) has been widely used to treat progressive hemifacial atrophy (PHA). However, objective and quantitative analyses in patients with PHA are complicated because of multidimensional atrophy and fat absorption. This study aimed to introduce a new method to predict

BACKGROUND: Although fat grafting has become a widely used technique in aesthetic and reconstructive surgeries, resorption is still a challenge. Micronized acellular dermal matrix (ADM) has been considered as a stable, biocompatible soft tissue coverage material that can be used as a volume filler. Here, we compared the bioacceptance and sustainability of ADM hyaluronic acid (HA) filler with human fat graft in a mouse model. METHODS: Harvested human fat and ADM/HA filler were injected randomly o...
