We present a lower body contouring technique with a report on two patients. The procedure is determined by the body contour of the patient.

Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) possess multipotent differentiation capabilities, including the ability to repair and regenerate injured tissues. Recent studies have reported that ASCs have effects on fibroblasts that are related to wound healing. On the other hand, keloid is a result of pathologic wound healing, and keloid fibroblasts are known to have(More)
