A preliminary analysis of the methods that have been used and the results achieved since fat grafts were first used in 1889 is presented. Descriptions of the techniques used by several practicing physicians were collected by personal communication and a review of the literature and are recorded in this paper. Although the process of fat transplantation has not been standardized, it can no longer be considered an experimental procedure as enough surgeons have shown that there can be consistently…

BAMBI: Bilateral Augmentation Mammoplasty by Injection; Breast Augmentation Using Autologous Fat Transplantation: The Controversy and Personal Experience
TLDR
Autologous fat, the subject of this article, was introduced in 1987 and an interest for a forum to look at this method more objectively to establish whether it can be approved as an alternative to implants.
The Use of Autologous Fat Transplantation to Remedy the Iatrogenic Lipoatrophic Effect of Tissue Expanders
TLDR
Autologous fat transplantation can be used as an adjunct to tissue expansion to fill the lipo-atrophic defects that may result from tissue expansion.
Autologous Fat Grafting: A Study of Residual Intracellular Adipocyte Lidocaine
TLDR
Evaluation on effects of multiple rinsing of viable adipocytes and precursor cells for contour augmentation, enlargement, or filling of defects concluded that a minimal of three rinses achieved substantial reduction of the lipophilic lidocaine concentrations held intracellularly after harvest.
Autologous Fat Grafting: A Study of Residual Intracellular Adipocyte Lidocaine Concentrations after Serial Rinsing with Normal Saline
TLDR
This study proves that serial rinsing of fat cells harvested with closed syringe system using a tumescent fluid technique does statistically reduce the retention of intracellular lidocaine.
ADIPOSE DERIVED STEM CELLS- A REVIEW OF THEIR CURRENT ROLE IN RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY AND REGENERATIVE MEDICINE
TLDR
The current research into applications, techniques of harvest, culture and tissue engineering of ADSC and the concerns about the oncogenic potentiation and genetic stability of the cultured cell lines are explored.

TLDR
New models to explain the concepts of periorbital rejuvenation to both the surgeon and the prospective patient are outlined herein, namely, three facial halos (around the eyes, around the perimeter of the face, and around the mouth) and asymmetric triangles around the eyes.

Autologous Fat Transplantation: Micro and Macro Techniques
TLDR
The clinical indications for autologous fat transplantation as well as different methods of harvesting the fat intended for transplantation are presented and new techniques and instrumentation intended to facilitate the extraction and injection of fat and make it as atraumatic as possible are described.
Autologous Fat Transplantation: A 3-Year Study
TLDR
Autologous fat transplantation was used to correct asymmetries, hemifacial atrophies, and senile atrophy of facial adipose tissue of the zygomatic, facial, maxillary, buckle, and nasal labial areas and was followed by the microimplantation of autologousFat for the improvement of facial rhytides, glabella frown lines, and facial wrinkles and folds.
Autologous Fat Tissue Augmentation
TLDR
This paper is a presentation of the author's experience in using a system for autologous fat tissue augmentation to correct a multiplicity of tissue defects in both reconstructive and cosmetic areas.
Fat-grafting injection for soft-tissue augmentation.
TLDR
Techniques for fat-graft injection obtained from liposuction and the instruments specially designed for this procedure are presented, and the final results obtained with this method are compared with different filling materials used for aesthetic and reconstructive purposes.
Historical review and present status of free fat graft autotransplantation in plastic and reconstructive surgery.
TLDR
Investigations of the various uses of free fat autotransplantation in animals and humans provide an understanding of the problems associated with the use of fat as a free graft and evidence of the dynamic nature of adipose tissue that strongly supports the cell survival theory and gives explanation to the unpredictable behavior of freefat autografts.
Autologous fat transplantation. Long-term follow-up.
TLDR
It is concluded that autologous fat transplantation is a safe and effective procedure and fat graft longevity is examined in relation to the cosmetic defect treated, the recipient site, and the donor site.
Autologous Fat Transplantation: An Evaluation of Microcalcification and Fat Cell Survivability following (AFT) Cosmetic Breast Augmentation
TLDR
An analysis of 5 years of experience using AFT in breast augmentation and maximum survival rates of fat cells exceed 80% and the incidence and control of microcalcification is discussed.
The Biographical History of Fat Transplant Surgery
TLDR
The history of autologous fat transplantation as it pertains solely to cosmetic surgery is reviewed and how the most modem technologies of the 1980s may indeed prove that such transplants are close to the ideal substitute for soft tissue deficiencies is defined.
Fat cylinder transplantation: an experimental comparative study of three different kinds of fat transplants.
TLDR
It is concluded that fat cylinders harvested with the new instrument are as good grafting material as excised fat, while aspirated fat in this study was clearly inferior for grafting.
Syringe aspiration and fat concentration: a simple technique for autologous fat injection.
TLDR
A simple technique is described for harvesting fat, removing serum, blood, and liquid fat, and then injecting the concentrated fat into contour defects to improve fat graft survival.
