Fat Transfer: Q&AAsk a Question
Grafted Fat and Its Life Cycle, What Should be Expected?
I've heard that 10% of our fat cells die and get replaced each year. Is this true? If this is the case what happens to a fat graft, does this cellular turnover also happen to the grafted fat or does it fade away approx 10% per year? What exactly in the fat replaces the cells that are dying?
