Because of this, it’s very important to speak with a knowledgeable specialist so that you fully understand both procedures and everything that is involved. The decision will also depend on your age, if you have enough excess fat to use, your health, where your tumor was, what types of therapy you may be receiving, and what type of surgery you had.
