Imagine the possibility- Harvesting some fat (from your love handles, your cellulite) and use it to regenerate and heal defect on your skin.

Vanity aside, this is something that has tremendous application. Aside from regenerating skin for cosmetic reasons, I am pretty sure the researchers’ ultimate goals would be to use it to treat more serious injuries such as burnt victims and grafting for non- healing wound.
