Who Should Pay for Further Surgery? Flat Breast After Partial Mastectomy Filled by Fat Transer.
I had a partial mastectomy as a result of breast cancer. I was left with a small area of the breast that was flat. I opted for a fat transfer to fill this in. Since the transfer, I have what I describe as a kangaroo pouch, about 10 inches across the lower abdomen, almost pelvic bone to pelvic bone. The surgeon says this is because I had a hysterectomy scar there causing the skin to bulge. This is worse than the slight flatness of the breast was. Who has to pay for the tummy tuck to fix this??
