The results of grafts of fat obtained through liposuction are presented. They are the outcome of the current revitalization of the old technique of fat extraction and transplant. Both doctor and patient should be aware that a successful treatment is achieved through continuity. Fat grafts evolve with respect to time and permanence with reabsorption a part of the normal evolutionary process. Fat reinjection is a consequence of tissue reabsorption or a complement of the preceding injection. There is no complication associated with repeated reinjection. All cases reported here include patients with two or more reinjections, depending on their pathology and evolution.
