Aim: The objective and aim of this evaluation and study is to evaluate graft survival between fat harvested from abdominal and medial thigh for facial contour distortion. Study design: A Randomized Control Trial. Place and duration of the study: In the Department of Plastic Surgery, Ittefaq Hospital Trust, Lahore for two-year duration from March 2018 to February 2020. Methodology: Average fat survival at the start of the study, in the first and twelfth week. Patients meeting the inclusion criteria were randomly divided into two groups. Fat was harvested from medial thigh in Group A and from abdomen in Group Band the results were compared for fat survival. Fat survival> 6.00 mm over the past 12 weeks was considered excellent. ANOVA and chi-square test were used to compare the average fat thickness (mm) between groups. Complication between group with statistical significance p < 0.05. Results: The average final fat thickness in group A was 6030 +0.095 mm and 4.989 ± 1.094 mm in group B (p = 0.001). The average age of the respondents was 27 + 7.44 years (range from 12 to 60 years). Thirty patients (76.9%) in group A, none in group B. showed an excellent response (p = 0.001). Conclusion: Transplant survival with medial thigh fat better evaluation than results from abdominal fat.
