Lipofilling Safe for Mastectomy Patients

September 8th, 2011

Women who have fat graft injections or lipofilling after mastectomies face no greater risk of disease recurrence than those who do not undergo lipofilling, according to a recent study by European plastic surgeons.

Following surgery, many cancer patients are left with severely damaged skin and tissue.  Lipofilling is a specialized fat grafting surgical procedure in which aspirated (liposuction) fat tissue is first taken from a donor site.  Typical donor sites are the abdomen or flanks.  Then it is centrifuged, treated and injected into the breast.  The fat grafts naturally contain a population of adipose cells and the regenerative properties of the cells are particularly beneficial in healing tissue damaged by radiation.

Fat grafting is a less invasive technique to fill the void of tissue loss in reconstruction of the breasts.   Liopfilling offers women another choice and it is a technique that does not require immediate action following a mastectomy.

Breast Enlargement: Patient Experience

I had breast augmentation 2 weeks ago and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the results!! I was a little apprehensive, not about the surgery, but more about what size to go.

I knew the pain ( if there was any) would go away, but the size would stay with me. I decided the morning of surgery and have no regrets!

The recovery was amazing. I was up and around the next day and had absolutely no pain!! It was uncomfortable, but just the tightness in my chest muscles…I still can’t believe it was just two weeks ago!

I want to thank EVERYONE at the clinic and Dr. Bashioum, they were wonderful. They told me exactly what to expect during my recovery and were spot on. My mom came with me the day of surgery and was very impressed with the care I received and the instructions that she was given to help me after my surgery.

I can’t say enough about the ‘family’ at Dr. Bashioum’s clinic. I have been telling all my friends to go there if they have anything about themselves they want to be ‘tweaked.’

Thank you!
