Abstract:Facial recontouring with autologous fat transfer restores volumetric defects with high patient satisfaction. The scientific literature offers inconsistent results. The authors did not find clinical differences between centrifuged and non-centrifuged grafts. Volume gain may result from induced fibrosis, inflammation and native adipocyte growth or differentiation. The heightened interest in these procedures should instigate further investigation to refine surgical procedures and improve predictability.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
