Does fat grafting alone work to fill out lower quarter inner portion of breast that is missing after a lumpectomy?

Answer:

Of course that would depend on the extent of the defect.  Additionally, while the initial results of fat grafting are often highly satisfactory, the long term fate of the grafted fat is still uncertain.  Still, in many cases, it is a very worthwhile alternative to more complex reconstructive procedures.
