Breast reconstruction with fat after a failed flap?

I had a skin sparing mastectomy and used muscle from my back and an implant for reconstruction. Would I still be a candidate for your reconstruction with fat procedure? I don't like the feel of the implant. It is very hard and round.

Answer

Yes, you are still a good candidate for our technique of fat graft reconstruction. A good number of our patients come to us for this very same reason and we replace the implant with fat to restore a more normal feel and look.
