Everything You Need to Know About the Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Dr. Whitney Florin is a female board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic breast surgery and body contouring. Her goal is to help patients feel confident in their appearances and she relies on cutting-edge treatments like fat transfer breast augmentation to provide exceptional results. If you are considering a fat transfer breast augmentation, it’s important to understand what the procedure entails so that you can find the best plastic surgeon for your care. Here is what you need to know.


The Fat Transfer Technique 

The technique used in a fat transfer breast augmentation can have a significant impact on the surgical outcome. Fat transfers are a more natural approach for body contouring and they can subtly increase the size of the breasts. When using fat transfers, large pieces of fat are not moved from one area of the body to another. Instead, small droplets of fat are injected into the breasts so that each fat cell can have a good blood supply and continue to survive. The fat is also injected all around the breasts to evenly add volume in a rounded, natural shape.

Harvesting the Right Fat Cells 

Not all fat is the same. Fat transfers require pure healthy fat, which requires a healthy lifestyle. Fat that results from weight gain is not a good choice since the cells can easily die off. Instead, fat that exists naturally in the body is the better choice. Oftentimes, patients can benefit from the removal of unwanted fat on their abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. The excess fat is removed with liposuction, a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a small cannula inserted through tiny incisions to break up and remove the fat cells. These cells are then purified and transferred into the breasts through a small cannula.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Recovery 

Fat transfer breast augmentation recovery is relatively easy, especially when comparing it to breast augmentation with implants. After the fat transfer breast augmentation procedure, you will be given compression garments to wear around the breasts and areas where the fat was harvested. These garments should be worn for a couple of weeks to limit swelling and aid in recovery.

Although mild soreness is common during the first few days, it can often be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medications. Most patients can return to work and other activities after 1-2 weeks. After three months, most of the swelling will reduce so that you can see the final results of your breast augmentation and a more toned physique in the area where liposuction was received. 

Is the Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Right for You?

The fat transfer breast augmentation surgery is a great option for women who want to increase the size of their breasts by about one cup size. Fat transfers can also improve breast asymmetry caused by weight fluctuations, breastfeeding, or pregnancy. Another advantage of fat transfer breast augmentation is that your breasts will maintain a natural look and feel. There is also minimal downtime and recovery, which can be beneficial for patients who have busy schedules and don’t want a long recovery.
