Fat grafting is the process of taking fat from one area of the body (hips, buttocks etc.) and transferring (grafting) it to another area. This is commonly in done in the later stages of breast reconstruction. As there tend to be small contour irregularities in the reconstructed breast, Dr Tzvi Small performs liposuction with fat grafting at the later stages of the reconstruction (usually when the new nipple is being fashioned).
Patients love it!
