Adipose tissue is a real organ. Throughout its life, it has an intense proliferative activity, thanks above all to the fat cells that are found around the adult adipocytes. These are cellular precursors that have a great capacity for differentiation.
Adipose tissue is therefore very rich in multipotent mesenchymal stem cells, with the same growth potential as those contained in the bone marrow. With a difference: while the removal of bone tissue is more traumatic and its availability more limited, fat can represent an inexhaustible source, easily and immediately available.
