Abstract

Autologous fat grafting is an increasingly popular practice in the field of plastic surgery. Since the 1980s, it has become one of the most commonly performed procedures by plastic surgeons. Fat grafting has applications in a variety of clinical scenarios, ranging from breast reconstruction to facial volume loss. Recently, the benefit of fat grafting has been employed in wound healing and the treatment of troublesome scars. In this article, we describe the role of fat grafting in the treatment of keloid scars and venous ulcers.
