Breast Fat Grafting

Breast Fat Grafting in Sydney

Are you curious about breast fat grafting in Sydney?

*** Groundbreaking news – on 24th May 2016, Dr Gavin Sandercoe’s medico-legal insurance company has granted him coverage to perform fat grafting to the breast for all women including cosmetic breast augmentation. We have confirmed that Dr Gavin Sandercoe is the first surgeon in Australia to be granted this coverage by this insurer. This reflects the training that Dr Gavin Sandercoe has received in this surgical technique, and the number of reconstructive cases of fat grafting to the breast that he has already performed.

Dr Gavin Sandercoe has been using fat grafting as an ancillary technique with breast reconstruction and other types of reconstruction, as well as facial cosmetic surgery, for 5 years so is very experienced in the technique and ready to offer autologous fat transfer as a method of cosmetic breast augmentation NOW!

What is the future of breast fat grafting?

Fat grafting enthusiasts within the Plastic Surgery literature to look for are Sydney Coleman, Roger Khouri and Daniel Del Vecchio. Sydney Coleman was instrumental in developing methods of harvesting fat for grafting, whilst Roger Khouri and Daniel Del Vecchio have been advocates of the use in breast augmentation. These pioneers are continuing research on this technique.

Dr Gavin Sandercoe chooses to keep up to date with advances in the field by reading Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Journal (the Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons), so is more aware of the pioneers from the USA (and others that publish in that journal) than is the rest of the world. He will continue to follow the latest research on breast fat grafting in Sydney, and refine his surgical skills in this technique so that he may offer the safest options possible for patients.
