To the Editor We read with great interest the article by Liu et al titled “Association of Autologous Fat Injection in Facial Artery With Ophthalmological Complications.”1

The authors sought to determine the association of autologous fat filling with ophthalmic function complications in rabbits. They observed that minced fat injection was associated with more ophthalmic complications than injection of fat granules or fat lipid, and increasing the injection volume of fat tissues was associated with increased incidence of morbidity and mortality.1 The similarities between the rabbit and human ophthalmic systems ensure the practical significance of the study.
