The name of the face game -FAT

It is interesting how facial rejuvenation changed over the last few years! Instead of just removing fat I prefer now to TRANSFER it to a different location. Fat transfer allows for more natural and youthful look rather than skeletonized look of previous cosmetic facial surgery. Like in this case where fat was removed from the baggy eyes and put into cheeks

Better survival for breast reconstruction patients!

Interesting news: Immediate reconstruction following mastectomy is associated with a 26% reduction in breast cancer-specific mortality, according to a report in the October 15th issue of Cancer

As noted, women who had any type of immediate breast reconstruction, including implant and autologous reconstruction, had a 26% decrease in breast cancer-specific mortality compared with women who underwent mastectomy alone, the authors report.

The improved survival was present among women in all age groups, with those 70 years of age and older having the lowest risk of death among all those undergoing reconstruction.

We have seen this in our practice and now it does seem to be real!
