Will fat transfer fail for people with psoriasis ?
Fat transfer can be performed in the psoriasis patient. Issues of medications that suppress the immune system in the psoriasis patient are the most common concern for unfavorable results. Contact a member of ASAPS for a consult to see if you would be a candidate for a fat grafting procedure.

Psoriasis is not a contraindication to fat transfer. You need to have the psoriasis under the best control. Share with your plastic surgeon all your medical history and the medications you are taking.
