Autologous fat grafting is a technique that utilizes liposuction to remove fat from an area of the body such as the thighs, abdomen or belly, then liquefies the extracted fat in a lab and reinjects it into the chest area to rebuild the breast. This process is ideal for patients with excessive fat at potential grafting donor sites on their bodies, with healthy tissue at both the donor and breast site. As a fairly new method of breast reconstruction, autologous fat grafting has only recently been added to the growing list of options for patients who have lost one or both breasts to cancer or another life-threatening illness.
Because autologous fat grafting is a multi-step surgical process, it should only be performed at the hand of an expert surgeon. Board-certified surgeons Dr. Robert Goldstein and Dr. Heather Erhard at Bronx Plastic Surgery lead the industry in such leading-edge procedures, and they pride themselves on being exceptional providers of both high-quality medical as well as customer care.
