As Candice recovers, her challenges continue. Severe adhesions send her to a doctor for scar release sessions, but incorrect practice of the technique causes the scars to tether back down.
Knowing a fat transfer is on the horizon, she searches for the least invasive solution as she has several surgeries under her belt. She finds a doctor who performs non-invasive fat transfers, but he injects way more fat than needed, causing her breasts to swell up and become larger than her implants ever were.
When she develops a fever, she makes an emergency trip to California to return to the fat transfer surgeon, which ends with liquidated fat leaking out of her breasts. Dr. Whitfield weighs in on what went wrong, and why fat isn’t something to fear in the hands of a good surgeon.
