To perform a quantitative analysis of adipocyte viability after fat processing during autologous fat transfer, comparing the processing methods of washing, centrifuging, and sedimentation.
An experimental study was conducted in which 24 fat samples were obtained after processing from 22 patients undergoing autologous fat transfer. Histologic analysis of periodic acid-Schiff-stained specimens was then performed.

In the last decade, controversy has arisen regarding the influence of fat harvesting, processing and injection techniques on adipose tissue graft. The aim of this study is to compare the influence of three widely used fat processing techniques in plastic surgery on the viability and number of adipocytes and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) of aspirated fat.
A prospective cross-sectional study was conducted in 20 adult healthy female patients in whom material obtained by liposuction of the lower abdomen was separated and processed by decantation, washing or centrifugation.

This clinical and experimental study compared adipose tissue transplant behavior after two different techniques of purifying: centrifugation at 3400 rpm for 3 min and serum lavage without centrifugation.
Clinical evaluation was performed under standardized conditions for lipofilling on a series of 51 female patients, intentionally selected to have similar characteristics and assigned to two groups based on the method of processing. Experimentally, a culture system in diffusion chambers with vitaline membranes was designed to mimic the behavior and to study the morphology of the adipose tissue used for autografting.

Autologous fat transplantation is an excellent tool for filling defects and augmenting tissue. The literature provides a variety of reports with varying degrees of success or failure. The procedure is operator dependent and relies on the techniques of harvesting, cleansing, and reinjection.

Autogenous fat transfer with lipoinjection for soft-tissue augmentation is a commonly used technique without a universally accepted approach. The high percentage and variable amount of fat resorption reduce the clinical efficacy of this procedure and often result in the need for further grafting. The purposes of this study were to evaluate the effect of different harvesting and preparation techniques on human fat tissue viability and to determine fat tissue viability rates among the different fat preparations transplanted into a severe combined immune deficiency mouse model at 3 months.
