Record ID 32016000227
Authors' objectives: The medical questions of this assessment mainly relate to the safety of the autologous fat grafting procedure in the breast and may be grouped into 3 major areas: intraoperative and postoperative complications and oncological safety, radiological changes and their impact on patient care, and the conditions for conducting this procedure.
Authors' recommendations: Given that the autologous fat grafting technique has spread into clinical practice and there is no negative signal regarding the safety aspects of this procedure, HAS believes, subject to compliance with the methods for use of this technique, the operating conditions proposed by the members of the working group and the implementation of postoperative patient follow-up, that autologous fat grafting is a possible surgical method in restorative, reconstructive and cosmetic breast surgery, beyond symmetrization of the contralateral breast after surgery for breast cancer.
