    Fat transferring to tweak breast reconstruction. Has anyone had fat transferred to improve their breast reconstruction

    How many times have you had the fat transfer? Did you lose any volume after the transfer and if so, how long after the procedure was performed. I am considering tweaking my breast reconstruction and want to know how successful it is.

      I wanted my oncologist to "transfer fat" but he said no. He was afraid that the transplant might hide undected cells. Sometimes the x-ray, MRI, and/or Cat Scan can not penetrate tissue.

      I had a diep flap in January and had 2 tweeks there after. My left breast keep absorbing the fat. They feel very real and giggle like the real mccoy. It is a journey but they are mine.
