Description: Adipose Tissue Was Considered An Unreliable And Unpredictable Material For Tissue Reconstruction Until Very Recently. With The Development Of Standardized Techniques For Harvesting, Processing And Delivering Fat Grafts Pioneered By Sidney Coleman Md, The Indications And Uses For These Grafts Quickly Spread. Initially Thought Of As STRUCTURAL Grafts, Their Regenerative Impact Was Evident To Practitioners. This Finding Was Buttressed By The Discovery That Adipose Tissue Is An Abundant Source Of Mesenchymal Stem Cells, Capable Of Delivering Therapeutic Doses Of Mscs In A Single Operative Session (ZUK Et Al 2001). Current Advances In Fat Grafting Technology Have Focused On Delivering The Full Regenerative Potential Of Adipose Derived Mscs Within The Constraints Of Fda Regulatory Standards. Fat Grafting Is A Regenerative Technnology Already In Use Clinically For Many Conditions Including Reversal Of Radiation Damage, Degenerative Joint Disease, And Many Other Conditions. We Are Just Beginning To Understand How To Harvest The Full Potential Of Fat Grafting.
