portada - PRS - Vol. 132; No. 2 (2013)Despite rapid growth, gluteal fat transplantation is an operation in search of science and a teachable technique. Long operating times, tedious syringe transfers, inability to shape the recipient site, and the risk of fat embolism all headline as impediments to clinical adoption of the procedure. Expansion vibration lipofilling is a syringe-free surgical strategy that is a logical extension of Separation, Aspiration, and Fat Equalization (SAFELipo). In expansion vibration lipofilling, there is simultaneous disruption of recipient-site connective tissue, internal expansion using exploded-tip cannulas, and backfilling of these spaces with roller pump–propelled fat.

portada - PRS - Vol. 132; No. 2 (2013)Gluteal augmentation with fat transplantation is increasing in demand but has been associated with a concerning number of fatality reports. Despite these reports, various surgeons have safely performed gluteal fat transplantation on a large number of patients with no reported mortality. The important aspects of safely performing gluteal fat transplantation are reviewed. Proper patient selection, favorable instrumentation, patient positioning, proper technique, and knowledge of anatomy are critical to improving the safety of this procedure. Adherence to these key principles should allow a reduction in mortality from this procedure, which would safely allow its continued offering in the setting of increasingly high demand.

portada - JPRAS - Vol. 71; No. 2 (2018)Rejuvenation of the dorsal surface of the hand for various conditions, such as cutaneous dyschromia, fine wrinkling, skin laxity, visible extensor tendons, and varicosities appear vital to prevent wrist and digit flexion resulting from hiding of the aged appearance of the hand. Numerous fillers have been applied to re-contour the aging dorsal surface of the hand and the results were variable. The micro-autologous fat transplantation (MAFT) technique, proposed by Lin et al. in 2006, has demonstrated its feasibility in facial rejuvenation. In this study, we applied the MAFT technique for the rejuvenation of the dorsal portion of the hand.

cov200hThe treatment of sequelae after conservative breast cancer treatment can be a challenge. Lipomodeling, although controversial in the beginning, is a safe technique that can help in the treatment of these deformities, without an important impact on the imaging surveillance. Depending on the severity of the deformity, one or several sessions of fat transfer can be required.
