Research suggests that lipofilling may be safe during conservation treatment for breast cancer
Date:5/24/2011

A new study has gone some way to answering the question about whether or not a technique called lipofilling is safe for women who are having their breasts reconstructed after surgery for breast cancer.

Lipofilling involves taking some fat from another area of a woman's body, such as her abdomen, and using it to fill in small defects or asymmetry that may occur during breast reconstruction. However, until now, there has been a lack of evidence as to whether or not the technique could trigger a recurrence of the original breast cancer, and so plastic surgeons have not been able to advise patients fully on the pros and cons of lipofilling, despite the fact that it has been used for over 30 years.

Now, a study published in the cancer journal Annals of Oncology today [1] suggests that lipofilling seems to be a safe procedure for breast cancer patients, although the authors say that longer follow-up and more research is required in order to confirm their findings.

The researchers analysed data on 321 women who had been operated on for primary breast cancer at the European Institute of Oncology (IEO) in Milan, Italy, between 1997 and 2008, and who had then had lipofilling as part of their breast reconstruction. These women were matched with double the number (642) of women who had also had surgery for primary breast cancer, but who did not undergo lipofilling.

The researchers followed up the women for an average of 56 months from the time of the primary surgery and 26 months from the lipofilling. They found that eight women in the lipofillling group and 19 women in the control group had a local recurrence of their cancer a difference that was not statistically significant. When they analysed the data to look specifically at recurrences in women with non-invasive cancer (in situ cancer) they found there were three cases of recurrence in the lipofilling group and none in the control group; this was statistically significant,
