Gentle Is Better: The Original "Gentle Technique" for Fat Placement in Breast Lipofilling.

J Cutan Aesthet Surg 2018 Jul-Sep;11(3):120-126

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University of Rome "Tor Vergata," Rome, Italy.

Context: Breast lipofilling usually involves three different stages (harvesting, processing, and placement), and in each of these phases, adipocyte cells can be damaged. Our technique of fat placement is quite different from the others as we focus our attention on the last stage of fat graft procedure, which could explain the better results in graft survival.

Aims: Our method is focused on eliminating any unnecessary manipulation of the graft so as to optimize graft retention and clinical outcomes: Controlled movement and slow rate of fat injection are the cornerstone of our technique and guarantee a nontraumatic fat transfer and a greater survival rate of adipocytes.
