Yes, but....: In general, grafting of fat anywhere in the body has unpredictable results: sometimes it "melts away" in a month or two and sometime it lasts for years. It must establish a blood supply after grafting to survive. Most fat transfer to the breast is now done to correct small irregularities after implants or reconstruction. Very few surgeons in the US are doing complete augmentation with fat alone.
