A method for augmenting hard or soft connective tissue, such as skin, tendon, cartilage, bone or interstitium, in a living mammal comprising implanting a proteolytic enzyme-solubilized, purified, native, in situ polymerizable collagen solution into the mammal at the augmentation site. The solution polymerizes at the site into a stable, non-reactive fibrous mass of tissue which is rapidly colonized by host cells and vascularized.
