The paper examines the use of adipose-derived stem cells in aesthetic surgery which is rising in popularity in soft tissue augmentation procedures such as breast, face, buttocks and scar deformities. It also investigates advancements that have been made in the field and analyses current clinical trials.
Adipose-derived stem cells are harvested from one region of the body through liposuction and then transferred to the desired area to achieve aesthetic results. The procedure does not replace implants due to limitations in achieving shape and size, however it helps make small corrections, increases volume and helps rejuvenate the treatment area.
