I had chemotherapy & Herceptin, can I do breast reconstruction with fat?

After my mastectomy I had chemotherapy as well as Herceptin. Is it still possible to do breast reconstruction and fat grafting?

Answer

Yes, after chemotherapy you are certainly able to have your breast reconstructed with fat grafting. However, we prefer that you complete your Herceptin treatment before the procedure.
