This woman had a history of lumpectomy and radiation treatment for breast cancer, resulting in significant breast mismatch and tightness and fibrosis of the treated breast. She underwent 2 cycles of fat grafting to the prior surgical site, leading to softening of the tissue and scar. It was the donor site for the fat transferred to the breast.
