If mastectomy or lumpectomy is part of your breast cancer treatment, you may choose to have reconstructive surgery to restore your appearance and boost your self-confidence.
Breast Cancer Reconstruction With Fat Transfer
Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, is a minimally-invasive option in breast cancer reconstruction. It can be used to improve the contours of the breast after lumpectomy and radiation treatments or to improve the shape of a breast reconstructed with implants or tissue flaps.
Fat transfer is performed by harvesting fat from other areas of the body with excess fatty deposits with liposuction, purifying the fat, and then injecting it into the breasts. After a one-on-one consultation and careful evaluation at Cara Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, Dr. Kahng can recommend the best breast cancer reconstruction option for you.
