I Am Considering Fat Grafting for Asymmetry Correction After Partial Mastectomy and Radiation Therapy (Completed 19 Months Ago).
I've been told that a 50% take can be expected, so I'm sure fat necrosis could be a complication. From what I've read, fat necrosis can sometimes resolve on its own. Are there any other possible complications that I should be aware of? Is fat grafting in a radiated breast generally effective and is it oncologically sound? How long do you have to wait to know how much of the fat survived? Thank you in advance for your response.
