Fat Transfer: Q&AAsk a Question
Would Having Cancer Affect the Way a Facial Fat Transfer Would Survive?
Had a mini facelift back in March 2011. Facial fat transfer also done at the same time. Results were gorgeous. By late May, about half of the fat transfer had dissolved. Found out last week, I have cancer in the left lobe of my thyroid. I had the plastic surgery not knowing I had developed cancer. Would more of the fat grafting had survived if I were cancer-free? I realize the thyroid isn't located on the face, but wd a facial fat transfer dissolve quicker from a patient w/cancer?
