The November #PRSJournalClub featured “The Architecture of Fat Grafting II” from this month’s @PRSJournal.

The study evaluated the architecture of fat grafting by assessing the relationship between the diameter of fat grafting cannula and injection volume on the size of fat deposits. Larger cannulas (14G or greater) were associated with larger fat deposits and thought to be at greater risk of central necrosis when injecting more than 1.0cc per pass. The authors concluded that use of injection cannulas less than 14G in diameter and smaller injection volumes should be considered to prevent central fat necrosis during fat grafting.

Resident Ambassadors to the PRS Editorial Board Dr. Francesco Egro (@FrancescoEgro), Dr. Nicole Phillips (@DrNikkiPhillips), and Dr. Ira Savetsky (@IraSavetskyMD) led an informative podcast discussion with special guest Dr. Matthew Hanasono as an introduction to this month’s topic. You can listen to the podcast below:
