Özet

Background: Determining the most advantageous size of liposuction cannula and injection needles in terms of adipocyte viability could help to increase fat graft survival. When recurrent injections are necessary, storing fat tissue which is harvested during the first operation could be a practical solution if it is stored at an appropriate temperature providing the highest amount of viable fat cells.
