Breast augmentation in Familial Partial Lipodystrophy: a case report.

Familial Partial Lipodystrophy (or Dunnigan-Kobberling syndrome) is characterised by the progressive loss of peripheral subcutaneous fat, with or without truncal involvement. The resultant physical changes in appearance may be dramatic, especially in women, and their psychological impact underestimated. There are limited reports regarding the role of reconstructive procedures to address the physical defects imposed by the various lipodystrophy syndromes, and much of the work to date has focused around facial lipoatrophy in patients with HIV-1 protease inhibitor induced disease.
