Abstract

The main obstacle to achieving favorable outcome of soft-tissue augmentation after autologous fat transplantation is unpredictable long-term results due to the high rate of absorption in the grafted site. At the present time, adipose aspirates can only be used for immediate autologous fat grafting during the same procedure in which liposuction is performed; therefore adipose aspirates obtained from the procedure are usually discarded. It has been a strong desire of both surgeons and patients to be able to preserve the adipose aspirates, if an optimal technique were available, for potential future applications. For the last several years, cryopreservation of adipose tissue has been studied extensively in the author's laboratory. Several findings from this exciting translational research will lead to develop a reliable method for long-term preservation of adipose tissue in the future. In addition, successful long-term preservation of adipose tissue may open a new era in adipose tissue related tissue regeneration.
