Fat Grafting in Foot Under the Metatarsal Area
If the fat is being grafted to the ventral portion of the foot, pressure is going to be a huge issue. I am not sure exactly where or why the fat is being grafted, but I have not offered it to a patient there as whatever is placed must be hearty on its own or will be destroyed by the demands of the foot.
