The purpose of this study was to assess complications, radiographic changes and locoregional cancer recurrence outcomes in patients undergoing autologous fat grafting after breast reconstruction in postmastectomy patients. Centrifugation, particularly over 3, g, has been cited to cause damage to adipose cells Descriptive statistics were generated. Autologous fat grafting to the breast for cosmetic enhancement: experience in 66 patients with long-term follow up. Several studies have shown that fat grafting did not effectively hinder radiological breast screening 2, At the initial stage, the fat was injected under direction visualization into the intra-muscular and submuscular planes.
Complications of Autologous Fat Transfer to the Breast
Patients who have refused or failed implant reconstruction or deemed high risk or unwilling to proceed with flap-based reconstruction can obtain an aesthetically pleasing result using serial autologous lipoinjection. Based on these preliminary findings, autologous fat grafting appears to be a relatively safe procedure for refinement of the reconstructed breast in postmastectomy patients. Mammographic findings after breast augmentation with autologous fat injection. Her BMI on presentation was Despite the increased number of published studies, few have a good level of scientific evidence. After six months following removal of tissue expanders, the patient underwent local tissue rearrangement of her right breast in addition to fat grafting to bilateral breasts.
Although none of the analyzed studies have indicated a high level of scientific evidence, fat grafting seems to be an adequate and safe technique to repair breast deformities and is a good alternative to moderate aesthetic breast enlargement. In each instance, the lipoaspirate was mindfully and purposefully injected to create an aesthetic central breast mound. The treated areas will probably be quite bruised and swollen for a few weeks. An article search was performed in the PubMed and LILACS databases using the following key words: "breast fat graft", "breast fat transplantation", "breast adipose tissue injection", "breast lipomodelling", and "breast lipofilling". The author reports cosmetic breast augmentation and performed a literature review, focusing on the efficacy, carcinogenic potential, and imaging diagnosis.
However, their comparison of the same group of patients at different time windows has been criticized by other authors Ethical Statement : The authors are accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

Most surgeons subjectively estimate the amount of fat that is needed to correct the defect and state that the fat grafting procedure should be performed in more than one step, particularly in cases of reconstruction after radiotherapy.
