Objective: To compare the quality of post burn facial scars before and after injection of unfiltered nanofat.
Place and Duration of Study: Plastic Surgery Department, Mayo Hospital, Lahore, from January 2016 to December 2016.
Methodology: 48 patients with post burn facial scars were included, age range 4 to 32 years with Fitzpatrick skin types between 3 and 4. Patients with hypertrophic scars, contractures or keloids were excluded. Scars were assessed by a senior plastic surgeon and the patient on the POSAS. Fat was harvested from the abdomen and/or thighs with a 3 mm multi-port liposuction cannula (containing several sharp side holes of 1 mm) using Coleman's technique, emulsified, and transferred into 1 ml Leur lock syringes for injection into the subdermal or intradermal plane. Final follow up was scheduled at 6 months and scar was rated by the patient and the same surgeon on the POSAS. Pre and post op scar scores were compared and p-values calculated.
