Fat Grafting Coverage

At the Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day event in October, we learned that funding for fat grafting was not covered by the province. This procedure is minimally invasive and could improve reconstructive surgery outcomes. Several patients could benefit from this procedure but may not be offered the option due to lack of provincial funding. To get funding for fat grafting approved by the province, we must lobby government officials. We have prepared a Fat Grafting Example Letter that you can use as a starting point. Please feel free to tailor it with your own experience. Adding your story will personalize the letter and make it more impactful.
