Case Report

Breast reconstruction after nipple/areola-sparing mastectomy using cell-enhanced fat grafting

Background: The success of fat grafting in breast reconstruction depends on fat retention. The use of stem-cells-enriched fat graft is an alternative method for graft stability.

Case report: A case of nipple-areola sparing mastectomy double stage reconstruction with the use of stem cells enhanced fat graft is reported.

Conclusions: Fat grafting is growing as a new and promising tool in reconstruction following nipple and areola sparing mastectomies as a way to restore a sufficient and reliable subcutaneous space in the mastectomy flap. This combined with an anatomical gel implant offers an integrated system of achieving a natural shaped breast.
