Abstract

Summary:

Cell-assisted lipotransfer has shown much promise as a technique to improve fat graft retention in both mouse and human studies. However, the literature varies as to whether fresh stromal vascular fraction or culture-expanded adipose-derived stromal cells are used to augment volume retention. The authors’ study sought to determine whether there was a significant advantage to using adipose-derived stromal cells over unpurified stromal vascular fraction cells in a mouse model of cell-assisted lipotransfer.
