Surgery to Lose Fat, Get Bigger Breasts?

Breast Augmentation With Fat Grafts Shows Promise, but Questions Remain, Plastic Surgeons Say

Second Opinions

More study is needed on fat grafts to the breast, says William Aiello, MD, a plastic surgeon in Los Alamitos, Calif.

"There's a paucity of information," he says. "It will take another couple of years to determine exactly the best use for it."

"I think we need more confirmation from the radiologists" to confirm that breast cancer could be detected in fat-injected breasts, says Lee Colony, MD, a plastic surgeon in East Lansing, Mich., and clinical associate professor at Michigan State University in East Lansing. He has performed the procedure on a limited basis for breast reconstruction patients.
