Can you correct dent on breast with fat?

I had a double mastectomy earlier this year with immediate reconstruction. I have Mentor smooth silicone implants. However, one of my breasts has a dent due to very minimal fat. This is especially noticeable when I lay down. Does this sound like something that fat grafting could correct?

Answer

Yes, this is something we have a lot of experience correcting with fat grafting. Our fat grafting procedure will improve your breast deformity and give you more natural, softer, warmer and bouncier breasts. But, since the thin tissues can only be doubled in thickness after each grafting session, you should realize from the outset that this might require more than one grafting procedure. And if you were radiated, to get there you might require at least 4 grafting sessions.
