Title: Crater deformities after surgery (pics)
Post by: burntsmores on June 20, 2020, 08:43:16 AM
since my surgery one month ago i've had large craters on both sides of my chest that are visible at rest, and more visible when I raise my arm. Unfortunately, they have not improved with time. Is it possible this can resolve with healing? Or will revision be necessary in the future (I understand that I should not undergo revision for at least 6 months). If so, would fat flaps be viable (considering how large the indent is?)

Hi, I just felt I should come on this forum and make a few posts to let people know that the fat flaps can work for corrective surgery.  I just had it done with Dr. Elliot Jacobs in NYC, and while I am still healing it is amazing how much he was able to fix the crater issue I suffered from for years.  I would not go the route of fat transfer and only work with a doctor who really understands the fat flap technique. Good luck.

Just curios what was the cost for the fat flap? can you show post pictures now of the healing process?
