Is it possible to have a fat transfer if I had polio?

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 05 December 2012


I had polio when I was 8 months old, now I am 47. I wonder if it is possible to have a plastic surgery, such as fat transfer/grafting, on my left leg. My weight is 80 Kg.


Fat transfer is indeed a possibility, but more commonly calf implants are used for correction of polio sequelae in the leg contour.
