Plastic Surgery’s Did You Know? Fat Grafting and Stem Cells

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

The popularity of fat grafting today has more to do than just with it’s generous supply in most patients, being composed of a natural substance¬†and its ability to be placed by injection. All admirable qualities of a grafting material for sure. But within fat it has been discovered that stem cells exist…and a lot of them. Fat has as much as 300 to 500 times the number of stem that bone marrow has. This makes the potential to be transplanting stem cells as well as fat which theoretically may have a rejuvenative or youth-inducing effect. This has led to a lot of marketing and claims about various ‘stem cell’ procedures for aesthetic enhancement in plastic surgery. Such claims, however, remain unsupported by science as of yet.
