Tissue engineering holds promise for the treatment of post-operative, congenital or post-traumatic loss of the subcutaneous fat layer, which can result in scar tissue formation, deformity, and a loss of function. This work reviews the key progress to date in the field of adipose tissue engineering of our group of work. The general strategy involves seeding an extracellular matrix (ECM) substitute with cells capable of contributing to the regenerative response. These studies have shown the promise of adipose tissue regeneration for women that suffered a radical mastectomy a consequence of cancer of mama.
