A word of warning from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is that women who are considering having breast augmentation surgery using the relatively new procedure of fat grafting should be very cautious and also should be aware that while there are definite temporary benefits with the surgery, there could be some long-term issues which need to be more thoroughly researched./p>
However the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery warned that in quite a few cases there had been issues with cyst formation and calcification as well as uneven breast shapes forming. The cysts while not dangerous in themselves can make self-examination of breasts difficult and lead to false breast cancer scares. They can also interfere with mammography ultrasound and MRI scans and lead to false negative breast cancer results.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery said that they were aware that the process for breast cancer screening was much improved over the last decade but there were still risks that calcification and cysts could complicate matters.
If you are thinking of having a fat grafting operation it is extremely important that your cosmetic surgeon explains all these issues to you in detail. Any surgeon who tries to portray a very rosy picture of complication-free fat grafting surgery should be avoided.
You should also be aware that using fat grafting for a breast augmentation operation can take much longer than having regular breast implants inserted.
Make sure you know all the facts before agreeing to any surgery!
