Fat Grafting With Expanded Adipose-derived Stromal Cells for Breast Augmentation: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

Aesthet Surg J 2022 Jun 15. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Department of Plastic Surgery and Burns, Copenhagen University Hospital, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Background: The main challenge with fat grafting is that a varying part of the graft is lost to post-surgery resorption. Previous studies suggest that adipose-derived stromal cells (ASCs) can improve the volume retention of fat grafts but there is a lack of randomized trials to support its use in clinical practice.

Objectives: This trial aimed to investigate whether ASCs improve fat graft volume retention in patients undergoing breast augmentation with lipofilling. Read More

[Lipoabdominoplasty in post-bariatric Surgery: a relevant Alternative to Fleur-de-Lis abdominoplasty?]

Handchir Mikrochir Plast Chir 2022 Apr 13;54(2):98-105. Epub 2022 Apr 13.

Sana Klinikum Hameln-Pyrmont, Plastische und Ästhetische Chirurgie, Handchirurgie.

Background: The number of bariatric procedures, and thus also the number of post-bariatric operations, has increased dramatically in recent years. Although long scars are common in post-bariatric surgery and accepted in favour of body shape reconstruction, we increasingly notice the wish for aesthetically pleasing results in addition to the desire for body contouring. In particular, Fleur-de-Lis abdominoplasty (FdL) is viewed critically by younger patients after massive weight loss due to the visible vertical scar. Read More
