Just asking if anyone out there has experience of fat grafts,
Laura's op to repair the exposure failed within 2 weeks of surgery, i feel so sad for her, the consultant has said he would prefer to use her own tissue as putting another implant in straight away may cause a reinfection so we would have to have a period with no implant at all (which bothers me too).

I went 6 years without an implant and although aesthetically it wasn't nearly as good, health wise it's no big deal. I just recently had my third implant implanted and so far so good. One doctor wanted to use a dermafat graph but my surgeon felt he could get a sclera wrapped coral implant to stay put. So to answer your question, I don't have experience (yet but who knows) with the dermafat graph but I do have experience with having no implant for a while and it's no big deal.

My fat graft is great. I wish it had been offered to me years ago.

Here's a bit about them..
