FAT GRAFTING – HOW TO HARVEST

Researchers at MD Anderson were trying to decide what method was the best to use to get the best fat to re-implant.  Success of a fat graft depends on adypose derived stem cells and the stromal vascular faction.

They found that direct excision of fat from the abdomen or using Coleman’s technique with a centrifugation yielded the most ASC and SUF cells.  Also the abdomen was a better site to harvest from than the flanks or axillae.  I am still not sold totally on centrifugation.
