Plastic surgery, fat is now stored in the ‘bank’ – Medicine

First case in Italy of self-transplantation of cryopreserved adipose tissue in plastic surgery thanks to a public-private partnership between Lipobank, a research and development company in the field of cryogenic tissue science and Banca della Cute RER (Emilia-Romagna Region).


Until now it was only possible to carry out a fat transplant immediately, whereas in this way it will be possible to use cryopreserved adipose tissue. The operation was performed by Damiano Tambasco, head of plastic surgery at the San Carlo di Nancy hospital in Rome (GVM Group).


“Until a few years ago, fat was discarded – explains Tambasco – while today it has become so precious that it is kept in banks”. The surgery was performed last April 4 on a patient who had undergone liposuction surgery in June 2023.


“This technology has enormous potential – adds Tambasco -. Its application, even in the field of plastic and aesthetic surgery, has unprecedented advantages. The patient I operated on a few days ago suffered from hypoplasia of the buttock and had facial a series of scars that created severe discomfort, because they were very evident. Thanks to the adipose tissue cryopreserved during the liposuction, it was possible, through a minimally invasive procedure carried out with very small cannulines, to carry out infiltrations in the hypoplastic and scarring areas autologous adipose tissue represents the best filler there is because it is a completely natural filler that has no side effects, but only benefits. Cryopreservation allows you to take a single sample of fat and then use it later and compared to other techniques it presents a whole series of advantages, first of all the fact that the grafted fat is absolutely biocompatible and both harvesting and reimplantation occur through minimally invasive interventions”.
