Can Fat Necrosis Continue to Apprear 2 1/2 Years After Breast Reduction?

I had breast reduction 2 1/2 years ago First two mamo's were fine (BI-RADS 2). This years mamo is now a 4 due to significant increase in califications in right breast. I have two large, hard palpable masses which radiologist and oncologist surgeon feel are fat necrosis and want to biopsy to confirm. If biospy turns out to be negative, should I still consult with my plastic surgeon to see if these areas should be removed due to their size and density. I have strong family history of BC.
