Fat Grafting or Transfer of fat from one part of the body to another part of the body has been used in cosmetic surgery (e.g. to the face) as well as in reconstruction surgery. For those patients undergoing breasts reconstruction surgery, liposuctioned fat has been used to transfer fat from unwanted bulges to the reconstructed breasts for contouring as well as volume.
Here is a patient who had a right breast mastectomy who presented for breast reconstruction. Fat liposuctioned from her abdomen and flanks were used to reconstruct the right breast as shown.
