Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The fat will be harvested from medial thigh in Group A by consultant Plastic Surgeon. The procedure will done under local anesthesia. The duration of procedure will be around 60 minutes. The procedure will be done to correct the contour deformity of the patients by filling the fat in different layers of skin and underlying tissue in single procedure. Tumescent or infiltration Solution was made of 0.5% lidocaine with 1:200000 epinephrine diluted in 200 ml lactate ringer solution. This was injected with 17 G cannula in subcutaneous tissue of donor area. The injection and harvesting was done at 2:1. The fat with 23G cannula was harvested and prepared with the help of gravity. The fat separated from fluid and oil. The extracted fat was injected with 1cc syringe attached to 14 G needle in multiple layers. 20-30% over correction of contour deformity was done because of chance of absorption. At the end of the procedure, the steri strip over the recipient and dressing for donor sites was applied.

Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
by balloting method by researcher. The Ballot with Group numbers was put in a jar and each time when a patient arrives the researcher pick one and assign the group to that patient.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Simple randomization using balloting
Masking / blinding
Open (masking not used)

Summary
Brief summary
Fat grafting is an ideal procedure for contour deformity of head and neck after congenital disease or trauma. In this study the fat survival will be checked to confirm which donor site fat survived more. The outcome will be measured by comparing the width of the subcutaneous tissue by ultrasound.
