Breast reconstruction Case Study 24
This lady has previously had a wide local excision of breast cancer and an implant based reconstruction. She subsequently needed to have her implants removed and then underwent autologous fat transfer in order to give back some of the volume that was lost. She had some fat injected into the right side with more fat injected into the left. The result is shown 4 months after fat grafting and at this stage it is unusual for further fat to resorb. The left side will always sit higher than the right due to the radiotherapy although there has been an improvement in size and shape and symmetry.
