Autologous staged fat tissue transfer in post-traumatic lower extremity reconstruction.

Benjamin MA, Schwarzman G, Eivazi M, Zachary L - J Surg Case Rep (2015)

Bottom Line: The patient is a 52-year-old female who presented to clinic after a right lower extremity traumatic injury that required multiple re-operations, which lead to dense scarring and volume loss along the extremity inferior to the knee joint.The patient received two staged autologous fat injections and reported positive outcomes.Further research in the refinement of this technique and patient follow-up will lead to better graft survival and reconstructive outcomes.

RJV141F2: Right lower extremity post-fat transfer 3 sessions two-view.

Mentions: The post-operative course was not complicated, and a drastic improvement was noted in both form and appearance of the patient's lower extremity after the staged fat transfer reconstruction procedure (see Fig. 2). The patient noted improvement in mobility and decreased neuralgic pain that she had described prior to the procedure. Most importantly, the patient appreciated the symmetry between her lower extremities and reported improved self-esteem and decreased anxiety regarding her medical condition (see Fig. 3).Figure 2:
