This week, James E. Craigie, MD, of The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction answers your question.
Question: Do doctors do lipomodelling of the affected breast to make it more natural looking? Implant does not help. Thanks.
Answer: Thanks for your question. We perform fat grafting as part of the breast reconstruction process. If you had breast reconstruction with an implant and the results are not natural, fat grafting can help. There are some situations that require removing the implant in order to get a more natural result. Let me know if you need more info.
