She was diagnosed with PRS and underwent abdominal fat harvest and lipoinjection

In a similar study , CAF has been successfully used for VF refilling; 14 patients with breathy dysphonia secondary to laryngeal hemiplegia and patients presenting anatomical defects (7 cases, resp.) underwent vocal fold lipoinjection
with CAF only.

In 1991, Mikaelian et al were the first to describe autologous fat injection (lipoinjection
In view of the muscle atrophy and the elevated risks of a foreign-body reaction and implant extrusion from previous radiation, type I thyroplasty was initially deferred in favor of lipoinjection
. However, if further medialization is required in the future, the implanted fat will provide a thicker barrier against implant extrusion or mucosal erosion while providing more bulk to the vocal folds, and thyroplasty may be performed.
The authors prefer either medialization laryngoplasty or injection augmentation (e.g., lipoinjection
