Clinical Trial Summary

This study aims to investigate the preparation of the recipient site prior to autologous fat grafting (AFG) using different methods.


Clinical Trial Description

Autologous fat grafting is emerging as a powerful tool for soft tissue reconstruction and augmentation and is widely used in plastic surgery. However, there is great variability in terms of long-term graft retention (survival). Moreover, the recipient site preparation is the phase of the procedure which received less attention in clinical and pre-clinical investigations. To provide information regarding an effective preparation of the recipient site may potentially lead to improvements in fat graft survival.
