Fat Transfer to Breast Overview

This is an implant process that has been in existence for about 100 years through its combination with liposuction has only been practiced for the past two decades. It is being used as an alternative to breast implants where fat cells from hips, stomach, and other fat abundant body regions undergo liposuction before placing their contents in the breasts. Careful placement of fat cells under the skin as small tunnels result in growth and increased breast volume over time. Although techniques have been evolving as it pertains to this procedure, some major problems like changes in mammograms have been noted making it hard for the radiologist to detect cancer.
