Fat Necrosis and Infection After Breast Reduction?
Thank you for the question.
As you probably know, an area of fat necrosis is an area of tissue that is poorly vascularized; it does not receive enough blood flow and is exposed to a greater risk of infection. Therefore, it is possible even 3 months after breast reduction for this relatively unhealthy tissue to become infected. If this does occur, an excisional or drainage procedure may be necessary.
I hope this helps.
