Plastic Surgery SmartBrief | Feb 05, 2016

Autologous fat transfer does not increase the risk of cancer recurrence when used to reconstruct breasts after mastectomy, according to a study published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The researchers assessed the risk of locoregional and systemic recurrence in cancer patients compared with cancer-free patients who had prophylactic mastectomy. The researchers found no link between autologous fat transfer and locoregional recurrence, systemic recurrence or second breast cancer. PhysiciansBriefing.com (02/03)
