* The Graduate Hospital, One Graduate Plaza, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19146 History I n 1985 the senior author utilized fat that was retrieved from lipo-suction procedures and experimented with its reinjection into other body areas. During these initial experiments a 3-cc syringe was used with a 12-gauge needle to aspirate fat from the local areas of the abdomen; the fat was then reinjected into a recipient site with an I8-gauge needle. Large quantities of fat were difficult to acquire very… 
Facial fat grafting with a prototype injection control device
The ICD optimally distributes fat as a uniform thread along the withdrawal tract of the cannula, thereby eliminating clumping and minimizing tissue trauma, resulting in reduced recovery time as well as more consistent and predictable clinical results.
Correction of the Ptotic Chin by Lipotransplants
The "witch's chin" results from the ptosis of the soft tissues of the chin which affords the ability to improve the ptotic chin contour without having to elevate the tissues.
Histopathologic Evaluation of Adipose Autografts in a Rabbit Ear Model
In this study, the temporal histologic events are progressive fibrosis; decreased amount of viable fat; inflammation beginning with a neutrophilic response, later a macrophage and giant cell response; and neovascularization at the periphery of the graft insufficient to maintain graft viability.
Fat Transplantation and Autologous Collagen: A Decade of Experience
The author's experience, over the past decade, with adipose tissue as a filler substance, shows that superficial and deep defects can be successfully corrected with adipOSE tissue.
Immediate Reconstruction with Autologous fat Transfer Following Breast‐Conserving Surgery
Immediate autologous fat grafting is a promising technique for partial breast reconstruction after BCS and has the advantage that enables the reconstruction of defects in areas difficult to repair, particularly in the upper inner quadrants.
Facial Augmentation with Autologous Fat
The minimally invasive technique using autologous fat transplantation has become a standard procedure in facial rejuvenation and the use of albumin during harvesting and transfer phases will facilitate graft retention.
Liposuction fat-fillant implant for breast augmentation and reconstruction
The confinement of liposuction fat in implants using the Lipovacutainer during a routine liposuctions is described, which shows slow liquefaction without interference with mammography studies.
Autologous Fat Transplantation
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 good results.
[Autologous fat transplantation in the modern reconstructive surgery of breast cancer].
The authors initiated that breast and plastic surgeons should promote adequate long term follow-up of breast cancer patients who underwent breast reconstruction with autologous fat transplantation by the establishment of national registries.
History of Fat Transfer
Non-autologous fat transfer is a common technique in facial rejuvenation, repair of defects and deficits, and more recently, for nonaesthetic purposes including neurosurgical and orthopedic.


Free Autogenous Pearl Fat Grafts in the Face‐A Preliminary Report of a Rediscovered Technique
Free autogenous fat grafts between 4 and 6 mm (the size of a pearl) have been used successfully to correct pitting acne, nasolabial folds, eyelid depressions, facial atrophy, facial wrinkles,
The fat cell "graft": a new technique to fill depressions.
