Cosmetic fat augmentation following breast reconstruction: sonographic appearance with cytopathologic correlation

      Abstract

      This series presents the history and imaging of patients who had cosmetic fat augmentation following mastectomy and reconstruction. The cases provide the useful reminder that a complete surgical history is essential when assessing the imaging of a post-operative breast patient and that speaking directly with patients can be a critical step in putting together a complete clinical picture and adding value to their care.
