Adipose tissue is easily accessible and rich in pluripotent adult stem cells. Th ese can diff erentiate into fat, cardiac muscle, smooth muscle, skeletal muscle, cartilage, bone, nerves, blood vessels, liver and blood. Extraction of these cells from the fat is a relatively simple procedure. Applications in orthopedic and cosmetic fi elds are gaining popularity as a simple safe and eff ective procedure. We will present a short background on the embryonic vs. adult stem cells, will discuss in detail the method of stem cells extraction and preparation and will present an overview of clinical applications with special emphasis on cosmetic and anti- ageing fi elds. A new role for liposuction is appearing.
