Summary: Breast reconstruction remains an important field in plastic surgery, with most procedures using implants and/or autologous tissue. Few series report on experience with fat grafting as the primary form of breast reconstruction. The present article describes a new method of breast reconstruction using a three-dimensional absorbable mesh construct—or Lotus scaffold—and autologous fat grafting. A retrospective review was performed for all patients who underwent breast reconstruction using the Lotus scaffold and autologous fat grafting. Postoperative mammograms and magnetic resonance imaging scans were an...

I briefly explained how this funding model will work, but it is so darn complicated that it deserves a much deeper look. To get more info, I went to the primary source. Dr Chris Mansi, the co-founder and CEO of, was kind enough to talk to me about the CMS decision.
