The use of adipose tissue transfer in plastic and reconstructive surgery is not new and has been studied extensively. Due to different results with regard to adipose cell damage and the level of survival of the transferred tissue in clinical practice, the authors aimed to investigate the effects of centrifugation on fat aspirates to optimize the centrifugal force for fat transplantation and to obtain an increased number of intact adipose progenitor cells. The following different centrifugation forces were evaluated in vitro in terms of fat decantation: 3,000 rpm (1,500×g), 1,300 rpm (250×g), and 500 rpm (50×g).

This study aimed to observe the effects of ultrasound waves at different frequencies on abdominal fat tissue. External ultrasound-assisted lipectomy (XUAL) via both histologic and immunohistochemic examinations was used to assess adipose tissue alterations, including cells and collagenic fibers. The results, at the immunofluorescence level, show that ultrasound used at 1 MHz with a potency of 3 W resulted in no alterations or only limited cell destruction with collagen fibers intact.

Neurofibromatosis is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder, although it may occur as a spontaneous mutation; clinically it is characterized by typical peripheral nerve tumours (Neurofibromas) and cafe au lait spots; they are more frequent over the trunk and legs. In this particular case study a patient with neurofibromatosis is described, who, besides the characteristic cafe au tait spots at birth, has developed, late and rapidly, lesions of neurofibromatous origin in the submammary region, right hip and bilaterally in the areolar region.
