After your initial consultation, you will have a pre-operative consult so that he can review the surgical plan and prepare you for the post-operative period. On the morning of your surgery, Dr. Rodriguez will make your “surgical markings” with you in front of a mirror. Thus, you are assured of having your incision placed just where you want it.

You may have a capsular contracture. If that is so you will need a capsule release with either fat injection or use of an acellular dermal matrix to provide extra space in the pocket.

It is a relative contraindication if you are using traditional techniques that undermine to the level of the costal (rib) margins. If you use the Lockwood technique that undermines only the central part of the abdomen it is not a contraindication because the skin retains a better vascular supply. To understand how that is done you could look at videos I have posted online at my Instagram account (Cosmetisurg) that show the actual surgical dissection used and how it preserves vascular supply.
Just as important as pricing is how the procedure is done. Not all fat grafting techniques are the same or as effective. There is great experimental evidence that very small graft particles have better survival rate and less complications.
