Fat Transfer in a teen for morphea.

I have successfully treated a number of young women with morphea (localized scleroderma) with fat transfer.  It usually takes 2 or three treatments several months apart.  It is important that the condition is stable and not active and it may be best to wait until you have stopped growing (around 16).
