Autologous Fat Grafting?

Autologous fat grafting
One of the potential risks of autologous fat grafting is having palpable fat nodules develop. Usually treatment with 5-FU/kenalog will help these to resolve. With proper harvesting and injection, and appropriate follow up, the risks can be minimized.
