Fat Grafting and Spider Veins
Fat grafting may have the potential to make veins more prominent given that the fat is injected to improve rippling, which suggests lack of tissue in that area. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
The fat transfer for the breast is deep to the skin and will not effect the spider veins at all. Are your implants subglandular or submuscular
Does fat graft cause/exaggerate spider veins?
Hello! Fat grafting to the breast should not impact spider veins at all. The surgery is deep to the skin layer, and the veins are in the skin. This procedure should not exacerbate spider veins. Good luck!
