What is fat transfer breast augmentation?

Fat transfer breast augmentation is an innovative procedure that can change the size and shape of your breasts by using your body’s own fat. Advancements in surgical technology have opened the door for it to become one of the most popular breast augmentation techniques. Many women are drawn to the fact that they can achieve the results they want using their body’s own fat cells and not silicone or saline implants.

As this technique utilizes fat from the body, a side benefit is a reduction in size in the donor parts of the body. Through the use of liposuction, fat is removed from areas such as the buttocks, abdomen, thighs, or love handles and then transferred to the breasts. As with any other autologous operation, fat grafting to breast requires less risk and a great reward.

The surgery

The first step in the procedure is selecting the donor sites from which fat will be extracted. Once the doctor has done this, liposuction can begin. After the fat has been collected, processed, and cleaned, it is ready for injection. Hundreds of fat droplets are then injected into the breast to create the contours that the patient desires. This method promotes the longevity of transferred fat cells, allowing them to flourish and function properly.

What is the recovery process like?

Unlike other breast augmentation procedures, the recovery from fat transfer is much easier on the body. The incisions made to collect and inject fat are very small and heal quickly. There may be some slight bruising in the breasts and donor locations. Over-the-counter pain medications are recommended to alleviate any soreness the patient may feel. Beyond that, it is recommended that you:

  • Avoid heavy lifting for several weeks
  • Avoid wearing constrictive bras
  • Avoid sleeping on your stomach
  • Take all medications as instructed
