Breast Reconstruction Revision with Fat Grafting
From experience, this is a very appropriate surgical plan to improve your results aesthetically. I frequently perform implant exchange with fat grafting at the same time for breast reconstruction revision cases and the results have been excellent. Good luck with your surgery.

Fat grafting can be an excellent way to manage lumpectomy scars or to augment implant or autologous (your own tissue) reconstructions.
Be sure you have appropriate mammograms prior to treatment and visit a plastic surgeon experienced with the technique in breast reconstruction.
Best of luck!
Fat grafting is and excellent way to smooth contours!
Fat grafting is a valuable tool in breast surgery. This technique has gained more popularity over the past 7 years. There are many techniques used to harvest the fat, process the fat and then re-inject the fat. Conventional suction lipectomy is performed with a small diameter cannula, processed by separating the liquid and fibrous tissue from the fat, and then placed into syringes for re-injection or through a closed system.
