Pectus Chest Deformity

Pectus excavatum is a congenital chest wall deformity in which there is a concave or indented appearance to the chest. It is the most common congenital chest wall abnormality and is far more common than a convex or bowed-out chest wall deformity (pectus carinatum). Pectus excavatum is usually noticed soon after birth but typically worsens during adolescence. Severe forms of the deformity are usually treated during childhood by the Ravitch or Nuss procedures because they may impair growth of the chest and the function of the heart and lungs. These procedures can have good results but can cause significant scarring. Scar revisions can be performed later in life.

Fat Grafting for Indented Chest with Mild Pectus Excavatum

Mild forms of the pectus excavatum deformity can be corrected later in life with fat grafting. Fat is harvested from the abdomen or hips and is used to fill the defect, correcting the concave appearance with very minimal scarring.
