While research is still unlocking all the mysteries of fat grafting, plastic surgeons know the procedure yields many positive results.

In fact, there are case studies where fat grafts were used to enhance function such as reconstructing a patient's lips after adverse reaction to "black-market" silicone injections or the reversal of therapeutic radiation injuries.

The researchers will present the findings and case studies during a panel discussion at the ASPS Plastic Surgery 2009 conference in Seattle, members of the American Society of Maxillofacial Surgeons.
