Autologous fat grafting

What is autologous fat grafting?

Autologous fat grafting is a breast reconstruction procedure that involves gentle liposuction of fat cells from anywhere in the body, and then carefully injecting them to rebuild the breast. This technique can also help to improve breast shape and contour after implant reconstruction, flap reconstruction, or lumpectomy.

The technique may involve between two to five procedures to completely rebuild a breast, depending on individual factors, such as breast volume. For some patients, we can start to rebuild the breast at the time of the mastectomy.
