Composite Augmentation: General and Specific Considerations for Breast, Buttock, and Calf Region Fri, Oct 16 2:30-3:30 p.m. CST

Suboptimal results with breast, buttock and calf implants were the main reason of raising popularity of composite augmentation techniques. Combination with fat grafting allow surgeons to improve the results, additionally increase the volume, overcome implants’ downsides, but also treat complications. Fat grafting can be done together with an implant insertion or as a staged procedure. Furthermore, the staged procedure can be implant or graft staged. The panelists should present their experience in composite augmentation, the rationale behind, safety considerations and mechanism of graft-implant interaction.

At the end of this activity participants will be able to:
