Fat Injection from Filling to Regeneration represents a unique collaboration among the world's leading experts in Fat transplantation and explores the advantages of fat grafting procedure. The objective of the book is to provide basic knowledge about the biology of fat and fat grafting and then to demonstrate the incredible range of aesthetic and reconstructive applications for this important tool. Special emphasis is given to the remarkable regenerative effects of transplanted fat stem cells on the surrounding tisue. 53 contributors from all over the world share their scientific findings on the regenerative potential for fat stem cells as well as their insights on fat grafting. The book includes 30 chapters preceded by a brief editorial commentary to highlight its relevance and importance. Fatty tissue has the highest percentage of adult stem cells of any tissue in the body. A possible explanation for the positive effects of autologous fat grafting to manage pathologic clinical conditions as radiations, burns and vocal cord paralysis exists: the repair cells (stem cells) in transplanted fat may restore damaged tissue. Studies are needed to delineate the role of adipose derived stem cells in the repair of damaged tissue both in normal situation and after free transplantation of fat. The book represents the first attempt to give an answer to these challenging questions.
