Instead, it seems to stimulate the production of autologous tissue and scar formation via ‘‘lipocytic dermal augmentation’’; and, because the injected fat cells may lose the race with time with respect to nourishment from existing tissues, its use often yields unpredictable correction (16–18). Using solid fat grafts quite often results in successful augmentation of larger soft tissue defects (19–21). However, many physicians feel that a graft simultaneously containing both dermis and fat will take better and more predictably.
