In most cases Elena recommends using this as a secondary procedure, after the main reconstruction has taken place, with either autologous tissue or an implant for breast augmentation.
Elena can use fat from your tummy, buttocks or thighs. Fat is harvested using a small cannula, in a similar way to liposuction. The fat is taken out, washed and prepared, then injected in small volumes into your breast using small syringes and cannulas.
Suitability for fat grafting is a decision which we will make together following a long conversation and examination in the clinic. A second consultation is usually required in order to confirm the right choice. Once the decision has been made, we will carefully prepare for your surgery.
Elena will talk you through all the necessary pre-surgery investigations, as well as the after-care required. She will also fully explain the risks associated with the operation. We will only go ahead with the procedure once you are completely ready and happy with the choice we have made together.
