Fat grafting to free deep tethering after mastectomy

This patient had breast reconstruction following a bilateral subcut mastectomy which resulted in deep tethering, where scars had become stuck to deep tissues which became worse when she moved.

Two previous attempts at fat grafting elsewhere had failed and had resulted in cysts. However, successful fat grafting has freed up the underlying muscles for movement and has eased scar restruction of the whole chest.

These photos help tell her story.
