In a United States multicenter  study  presented at the annual meeting of the American Association of Plastic Surgeons, fat grafting was demonstrated to be a safe procedure after breast cancer surgery.

Specifically the incidence of breast cancer recurrence was studied in patients who received fat transfer as part of their breast reconstruction, and confirms the findings of previous studies performed in European studies demonstrating no increased breast cancer recurrence in patients receiving autologous fat transfer (fat grafting).

The study included patients from Washington University, St. Louis; Memorial Sloan Kettering, New York; MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston; University of Chicago, and the University of North Carolina.

Increasingly, fat transfer is proving to be a safe, low impact option for women seeking breast reconstruction after cancer
