What is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

In this technique, often referred to as augmentation mammoplasty or autologous fat transfer, instead of using synthetic breast implants, fat is removed via liposuction from another body area and then injected into the breasts. This method offers the simultaneous advantages of increasing breast volume while also reducing excess fat in the donor site. The outcome typically produces an exceptionally natural look and feel, closely resembling natural breasts.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Candidates

Most patients who opt for this technique are looking for a modest increase in size, not necessarily a dramatic change. Ideal candidates for this procedure should be in overall good health and near their ideal weight but with sufficient subcutaneous fat available for transfer from another area. It's essential for candidates to have realistic expectations about the typical results of this technique and to be well-educated about the process. Patients who smoke or those who have significant, ongoing medical issues may not be suitable candidates for this procedure.

During the procedure, your surgeon will create small incisions in the skin to introduce the liposuction cannula and collect fat cells for transfer to the breasts. Next, the extracted fat undergoes processing to eliminate any blood or unnecessary components. Finally, small incisions are made around the breasts to allow for the injection of the purified fat. The procedure can be conducted using either general anesthesia or sedation and typically lasts about three to four hours.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Patients can expect some swelling and discomfort after surgery, though overall discomfort is typically mild and can be effectively controlled with medication. Recovery after Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation typically spans around three to four weeks, though individual experiences may differ based on the particulars of surgery and the way your body heals. While initial results are visible immediately post-surgery, optimal results typically take about four to six months.
