Crater deformity after undergoing gynecomastia. Will fat grafting help?

Hello Doc, I underwent gynecomastia June 2011. I think I have got crater deformity as a result. Could you please review the pics and advise me. Will fat grafting help ? WWW.WWWW.WW I would like to suction the residual fat from the surrounding area right below the armpits and can give fat injections under the nipples.Also get liposuction done to my tummy. Pls advise me if it s risky to do liposuction of stomach, flanks, under armpits and fat injections on the same day. Doctor, please can you explain the difference between fat grafts and fat flaps?

I cannot see any pictures here therefore cannot comment on the same. If you have a crater deformity then the only option is fat grafting but remember that more than 1 session might be required because of the unpredictability of fat absorption. If done in moderation then liposuction and fat grafting can be done on the same day and do not pose extra risk. Fat grafts are harvested fat obtained from liposuction which are injected into specific areas that obtain blood supply from the recipient site where these are injected. On the other hand, fat flaps have their own blood supply and the risk of absorption is therefore much less following transfer.
