It is with great pleasure that I submit a foreword for this new book. Many authors have written in detail about fat transplantation; however, experience and education are never enough on any of the cosmetic ? elds. The ? rst text on fat transplantation by Charles H. Willi dates back to 1926. This means that someone before us understood the importance of autologous resources that we have. The technique has naturally evolved and has developed in these years. It is of utmost importance for a cosmetic surgeon to know every detail about the techniques: anatomy, metabolism of fat, pharmacology, and eventually the treatment of compli- tions. A simple procedure is not necessarily a procedure that has no complications. All over the world and all over the centuries beauty has been a great spiritual force and has affected the evolution of civilization. Nowadays we are going toward an era in which major cosmetic surgical te- niques are not so requested anymore. Patients want to stay young; they do not want to become young again! Fat is a wonderful resource, which can be used for reconstructive purposes or for cosmetic ones. It is important for any surgeon paving the ? rst steps in this ? eld to study and read and learn every time a bit more in order to have the best results with the least problems. I congratulate the author and my friend Mel Shiffman for his precious contributions in everything he does.
