A new study on fat grafting for breast augmentation was presented at last week’s American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Plastic Surgery 2009 conference which I wasn’t able to attend. The ASPS News Brief section gave an update on the presentation with a pdf of the abstract.
The main study author, Roger Khouri, MD, FACS, is featured in a video explaining the study and technique. He feels that his study of 50 women is enough to settle the question of safety and effectiveness of fat injections for cosmetic breast augmentation. Even though his results are good, I remain a skeptic.
