  • Breast Surgery After Double Mastectomy

    For patient Lynn, she decided to have breast augmentation at 36 years old. 10 years later, she decided to do it again, but only a year and a half after that procedure, Lynn was diagnosed with breast cancer. This led her to decide to return to her surgeon, with whom she had a great relationship, due to her two previous procedures, to perform a third. She decided to have a mastectomy with her oncologist, with her board certified plastic surgeon doing her reconstruction. 

  • Breast Augmentation Using Fat Transfer

Fat transfer, also known as autologous fat grafting, does not have the same long term track record that breast augmentation with implants have, however using a person’s own fat to augment the breast holds many advantages. Fat transfer can be used to improve the appearance of a breast after augmentation, and in some cases, fat injections can be used instead of implants to fix breast asymmetry.
