Abstract

Since the end of the 19th century, autologous fat grafting has been performed often by plastic surgeons. The procedure evolved from work by Coleman, who developed the lipostructure technique. With the “Coleman technique,” fat tissue is extracted by nontraumatic liposuction, purified after centrifugation, and injected to fill tissues or to contribute cells to damaged tissues. Autologous fat grafting has many applications, including breast reconstruction, breast augmentation, facial rejuvenation, primary and secondary facial lipoatrophy, liposuction sequelae, buttock augmentation, scar revision, and radiodermatitis. If 2 small-volume plastic syringes are needed for injection, the 3-way stopcock allows us to fill both syringes simultaneously, which has cut our fill time in half With the 3-way stopcock, we can also fill just one syringe at a time, similar to the metal transfer system.
