Abstract:

Due to its various advantages, including minimal invasiveness, high safety and sufficient availability, autologous fat transplantation has been widely used in the repair of soft tissue defects in the oral and maxillofacial regions; however, its high postoperative fat absorption rate remains a major problem for clinicians. In recent years, it has been found that the high levels of growth factors and dense threedimensional network structure in Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) provide a suitable microenvironment for the growth of fat in transplantation areas, which can promote the adhesion and proliferation of adipose-derived stem cells. PRF is an ideal material to solve the problem of a high fat absorption rate. This article reviews the efforts of clinicians to reduce the absorption rate of fat transplantation, analyzes the effect of PRF on adipose stem cells, summarizes the clinical application of PRF in oral and maxillofacial fat transplantation, and preliminarily summarizes and discusses some problems existing in PRF in oral and maxillofacial fat transplantation. The hope is that PRF will be more widely used in oral and maxillofacial fat transplantation.
