Improved Adipocyte Viability in Autologous Fat Grafting With Ascorbic Acid-Supplemented Tumescent Solution.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

From the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive, Aesthetic and Hand Surgery.

Introduction: In reconstructive surgery, fat volume augmentation is often necessary for esthetic or functional reasons. As an alternative to synthetic and xenogeneic materials, autologous fat grafting (AFG) based on liposuction is gaining popularity, yet successful transplantation and long-term volume maintenance are difficult. Standard tumescent solution formulations neglect adipocyte and stromal vascular fraction (SVF) cell survival during extraction, as well as SVF differentiation into adipocytes thereafter, all of which are crucial for the success of AFG.

Adipose-tissue-derived therapeutic cells in their natural environment as an autologous cell therapy strategy: the microtissue-stromal vascular fraction.

Eur Cell Mater 2019 02 22;37:113-133. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology, Krankenhausstraße 7, A-4010 Linz,

The prerequisite for a successful clinical use of autologous adipose-tissue-derived cells is the highest possible regenerative potential of the applied cell population, the stromal vascular fraction (SVF). Current isolation methods depend on high enzyme concentration, lysis buffer, long incubation steps and mechanical stress, resulting in single cell dissociation. The aim of the study was to limit cell manipulation and obtain a derivative comprising therapeutic cells (microtissue-SVF) without dissociation from their natural extracellular matrix, by employing a gentle good manufacturing practice (GMP)-grade isolation.

Autologous fat grafting: Harvesting techniques.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2018 Dec 13;36:212-218. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Departamento de Biomedicina - Unidade de Bioquímica, Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade do Porto, Porto, Portugal.

Autologous fat grafting is widely used for soft-tissue augmentation and replacement in reconstructive and aesthetic surgery providing a biocompatible, natural and inexpensive method. Multiple approaches have been developed in the past years, varying in the location of adipose tissue donor-sites, use of wetting solutions, harvesting, processing and placing techniques. Despite many advances in this subject, the lack of standardization in the protocols and the unpredictability of the resorption of the grafted tissue pose a significant limitation for graft retention and subsequent filling.

Influence of Recipient Site on the Function and Survival of Fat Grafts.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Jan;82(1):110-115

Department of Pediatric Surgery, the Memorial Hospital of Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, PR China.

Background: Autologous fat grafting has become an increasingly common procedure for soft tissue augmentation throughout the body. However, the long-term outcome is always unpredictable because of inconsistent graft survival. Based on the "law of use and disuse," we speculate that the volume loss of fat grafts will occur when transferred into a site where there is less fat. Read More
