AimFat grafting has been a well known clinical method for reconstruction of small defects. Recently it has been used for the face and breast reconstruction and breast augmentation as an alternative to breast implants.
Patients Since 2008, the Oslo Plastic Surgery Clinic has performed 54 breast enlargements (in 45 patients) with the use of fat grafting to treat hypoplasia mammae and asymmetry, occasionally in combination with other procedures such as abdominoplasty and mastopexy.

Fat was harvested from the abdomen, thigh, buttocks, or knee and was grafted into intersecting and parallel canals through small incisions using a Coleman cannula. A loose bra was worn postoperatively. Average injected fat in all p ..
