Abstract

Fat grafting still remains technique dependent with possible less favorable long-term results because there are no standardized techniques used by the surgeon to perform the procedure. In this article, the authors have tried to standardize the techniques for fat grafting as first proposed and popularized by Coleman. These techniques, supported by the most recent scientific studies and understandings of clinical course following autologous fat transplantation, emphasize proper fat harvesting, processing, and placement so that a predictable long-lasting result can be achieved.
