Fat transfer only reconstruction is not routinely available in the UK. The British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) have more information about different types of breast reconstruction but fat transfer only is not listed. It may be worth contacting BAPRAS to see if this type of reconstruction is being trialled anywhere in the UK.
