Skinny Patients & Fat Transfer Procedure

“We prefer the fat of the thin patients; fats of the obese patient are just bags of oil; we like the craft cells. So, our better results are actually with the fat of the thin patients,” says Dr. Roger Khouri, Plastic Surgeon at Baptist Health South Florida.

He explains they would never turn down a patient for being too thin, they do not tell the patient to gain some weight before the operation, they tell them the opposite: “Lose weight, because when you gain it back your breasts will get larger.”
