Plastic surgeons across the country and around the world are performing

more breast enhancement procedures than ever. As increases in breast

cancer awareness, diagnoses, and treatment continue to trend, many women

require surgery after mastectomy in order to regain their original

feminine shape. One of the most recent developments in breast

enhancement surgery is the technique of lipofilling, which involves

using fat from other parts of the body to increase the size and enhance

the shape of a woman’s breasts.

Initial results with this technique have proven especially positive in

women that undergo breast reconstruction after mastectomy procedures for

breast cancer treatment. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has

recently published results of preliminary studies on this type of

procedure. The complication rate seems to be extremely low and the

lipofilling results do not affect post-cancer follow-up with

radiographic imaging. This is especially important in breast cancer

survivors and has long been a concern with saline and silicone implant

materials.

In an initial evaluation of over 500 women, most had the procedure done

by plastic surgeons almost three years after their original mastectomy

or lumpectomy. The average amount of fat transferred from one part of

the body – such as the thighs – to another was around four fluid ounces

or just over 100 cc. In some instances, the injected fat was absorbed by

the body and the procedure was repeated. However, the overall

complication rate was very low, with few serious complications. Less

than three percent of women experienced mild to moderate complications

including fat necrosis.

Unfortunately, breast cancer occurred again in just over five percent of

women. This was detected in follow-up mammogram results that showed

abnormalities. Emphasis in the study was placed on the fact that the

lipofilling did not interfere with the ability to detect new cancer and

the new cancerous tissue was removed promptly upon biopsy.

As such, lipofilling seems to be a promising and positive option for

women undergoing breast reconstruction after mastectomy or lumpectomy

for breast cancer. The low complication rate and lack of radiographic

interference makes it almost perfect for breast cancer survivors.

Further studies are needed to extrapolate many of the results to a

larger population and ensure the complication risk remains low. If you

have questions about this or any other type of surgery, contact one of

the many plastic surgeons in your area today. He or she will be able to

give you more information about lipofilling and let you know if this

procedure is appropriate for your goals.

If you are in need of a whole new look a plastic surgery makeover might be an option to consider. You can completely change your appearance as well as the way you feel about yourself.

Does the thought of a complete plastic surgery makeover sound appealing to you? If you are ready for a big change and want to take on something permanent this could be the way to go. What would a complete makeover entail? That's the best part. You can work with your doctor to choose the procedures that are right for you.
