After a bi-lateral mastectomy I had fat graphting from my hips and tummy to my breasts and face. Insurance covered the fat graphting (reconstruction) for my breasts.
The breasts look very good. A majority of the fat transfer stayed and greatly reduced the pain in the area as well. I'm very pleased with the results.
The facial graphing was a mistake. After 3 major surgeries due to the breast cancer I thought Id treat myself and have a bit of padding added back to my 48 yr old face. Not only did none of the fat transfer take, I actually have less fat in my face now 75 days post surgery. The before and after pictures brought me to tears! After breast cancer I really didnt need that!
My Dr was quite disappointed with the results as well and has suggested I try Sculpra to add back some of the fat to my face that was there before the graphting. (at a tune of $7k)
I completely regret the facial fat graphting. It was painful, caused severe bruising, and was a complete waste of money.

The Dr and his staff were wonderful. The procedure for my face did not work for me. The procedure worked very well for breast reconstruction.
