Fat Grafting for Facial Rejuvenation: My Preferred Approach

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The author provides his preferred approach to fat grafting for facial rejuvenation. The preferred donor sites include low abdomen and inner thigh. Fat grafts should be harvested with low negative pressure to ensure the integrity and viability of adipocytes. Fat grafts can be processed with proper centrifugation that can reliably produce purified fat with concentrated growth factors and adipose-derived stem cells, all of which are beneficial to improve graft survival. The approach described in this article is supported by the most scientific studies and thus may provide a more predictable long-lasting result if performed properly.
