Natural Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer

Natural breast augmentation with fat transfer (or “fat grafting”) is an innovative procedure designed to enhance fullness and shape in the breasts by injecting excess fat taken from another area of the body into the breast tissue. This technique can be effective for further refining shape, symmetry, and contours in combination with a traditional breast augmentation with implants, or it can sometimes be used as a standalone procedure to provide effective breast enlargement. Plus, fat transfer breast augmentation offers the additional benefit of contouring in another body region by using liposuction to harvest the excess fat, allowing for a more comprehensive aesthetic rejuvenation. Our experienced plastic surgeons here at Luxxury Boutique can meet with you in a complimentary consultation to determine whether this advanced treatment option is right for your needs.

Am I a Candidate for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Ideal candidates for fat transfer breast augmentation are typically individuals who are either looking for a relatively moderate size enhancement of the breasts or those who may benefit from adding this procedure to a standard breast augmentation in order to further define contours, correct asymmetries, and achieve the most natural look possible. Candidates must also have sufficient excess fat collection in another body area to supply the amount of fat necessary to transfer to the breasts. It is important to note that patients who desire significant breast volume enhancement are not often the best candidates for this treatment as a standalone procedure since fat transfer breast augmentation can generally only increase breast size by about one cup. For patients who are looking for a more substantial size increase, this option is usually better as an adjunctive treatment to further enhance the results of breast implants.

During your initial consultation, our doctor can explore this option with you and make a recommendation based on your needs and overall treatment goals.

What Does the Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Procedure Involve?

Fat transfer breast augmentation involves two essential components: liposuction of one body area (or areas) followed by injection of the fat cells into targeted areas of the breasts. For this procedure, liposuction is typically performed in an area such as the love handles, abdomen, hips, thighs, or another region where an adequate amount of fat can be extracted. Once the excess fat has been processed for relocation into the breasts, it will be precisely and carefully injected to add volume in the breasts and enhance their contours and shape.

This procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis and should not require an overnight stay in the hospital

What Can I Expect During Recovery from Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Patients should plan to experience some bruising, soreness, and swelling in the breasts and in the areas where liposuction was performed for several days after the fat transfer breast augmentation procedure. In most cases, patients are able to resume normal daily activities after approximately one week. Full post-operative guidelines will be provided that detail the best ways to achieve a safe and smooth recovery following the procedure.
