Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is devoted to recent advances in regenerative plastic surgery focusing on the development of new autologous and/or mini-invasive procedures, starting from past experience with substitutive surgery. Clinical advantages exist for the development of biotechnologies and new regenerative strategies to enhance plastic surgery techniques traditionally based on flap, graft and prostheses. To acquire this, advances in tissue engineering have to revolve around the improvement of mini invasive technology. During this case, the combined or uncombined use of autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP), micro-needling technique (MN-T), fat grafting, adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (AD-MSCs), human follicle stem cells (HFSCs), human adipose tissue-derived follicle stem cells (H-AT-d-FSCs) and biomaterials to enhance soft tissue defects (breast, face, buttock), hair re-growth and lower extremity ulcers appears to be fundamentals. A special focus must be dedicated to the innovative use of these minimal manipulation procedures.

For this Special Issue, we welcome submissions exploring cutting-edge research and recent advances in wound healing, hair science, breast reconstruction/augmentation, face rejuvenation and buttock augmentation. Studies comprising new strategies based on autologous and/or mini-invasive procedures are also related to regenerative strategies such as PRP, HFSCs, H-AT-d-FSCs, AD-MSCs, MN-T fat grafting, biomaterials and the development of new approaches are welcome, as are comprehensive review/systematic review papers.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. BioMed is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
