Candidates for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Most commonly, candidates for fat transfer breast augmentation are women who seek a subtle enhancement to their breast size or shape. Because breast enlargement with fat transfer requires harvesting the patient’s fat cells with liposuction, candidates for fat transfer should have some disposable fat. Usually, the abdomen, outer thighs or love handles are used as the donor area, but other parts of the body may be considered.
While fat transfer breast augmentation can be used to create fuller and shapelier breasts, the procedure does not alter breast position. If you’re concerned with breast drooping, you may wish to combine your breast enlargement with a breast lift for an overall perkier, fuller profile.
Your Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Procedure
Choosing to have breast enlargement with fat transfer is a personal decision. Fat grafting is a two-step procedure. First, Dr. Andan will remove a designated amount of fat from a part of your body. In fact, one of the benefits of fat transfer breast augmentation is the liposuction that is done to harvest the fat.
After the fat is removed from the donor area, viable fat cells are injected directly into the breasts. Multiple injection sites around the breasts are used to create soft, natural-looking contours. Fat transfer breast enlargement does not require any incisions on the breast.
Fat transfer breast augmentation is usually performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. You should be able to go home immediately following your surgery.
Your Recovery & Results
The night of your breast enlargement procedure, you will receive a phone call from our office to make sure you are doing well and answer any questions you may have.
The recovery process varies for each woman and depends on how much liposuction was done, how much fat was transferred to the breasts and whether you combined your breast augmentation with any additional procedures. In general, you can expect some soreness that should resolve in about a week. Most women are able to return to their normal routine within a week of breast enlargement, taking care to avoid any strenuous activities for the first couple of months.
You should see a noticeable increase in breast size immediately after your fat grafting procedure. However, your final results won’t be apparent for a few months. This is partially due to initial post-surgical swelling, as well as the fact that not all transferred fat will become integrated into the breasts.
Once your final results have developed, your breasts should appear fuller and shapelier than they were before. Because the breast enlargement was accomplished using your own fat cells, your results should look and feel completely natural.
