Two Soviet women were treated for complications of breast hardening and tenderness following augmentation mammaplasty using cadaver fat allografts. The cadaver fat grafts were excised and replaced with silicone-gel prostheses in the submammary pockets. The implants were found to contain necrotic fat tissue with areas of fibrosis and calcification; however, no signs of rejection were evident. Both patients had a successful postoperative outcome.
