Özet

Although fat grafts are considered the ideal soft-tissue fillers, the main concern dealing with this technique is not being able to predict long-term graft survival due to high absorption rates. The purpose of this study was to investigate the angiogenic effects of preconditioning the recipient area with micro-needling and to determine its overall impact on fat graft survival.
