Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Benefits

While there are many feasible breast augmentation options, a fat transfer provides a safe and effective approach to breast enhancement that eliminates the need for implants. Additional benefits of a breast fat transfer include:

What to Expect During Your Fat Transfer

Your fat transfer breast augmentation will require two procedures which will be performed on the same day under local or general anesthesia. In the first procedure, your healthcare provider will harvest your fat through the use of tiny surgical instruments called cannulas. Fat harvesting requires that you have suitable donor sites from which the fat will be taken. The hips, abdomen and buttocks tend to have enough fat that is required to complete the procedure successfully. Once the fat is obtained, it is processed in a centrifuge to purify it of blood, oil and water, to ensure only healthy fat cells are injected into the breasts.

The second procedure involves injecting the purified fat cells into the breast tissue. This is accomplished through several tiny injections into breast tissue to evenly distribute the fat cells and sculpt the breasts you desire. The total procedure time tends to take slightly longer than traditional breast implant surgeries due to the fat harvesting process.

Since this is a minimally-invasive approach to breast augmentation, your recovery time is minimal and does not require a long hospital stay. You can expect soreness and swelling at the injection sites which will subside over the course of a couple of weeks. The full effects may take up to 6 months to fully manifest and may change over time should you experience drastic weight fluctuations. If you are not completely satisfied with your results, you may elect to have touch-up injections to enhance the shape and size of your breasts further.

With numerous choices available to improve the appearance of your breasts, make sure you elect a procedure that aligns with your desired results, and that is performed by a qualified healthcare provider who is experienced in breast augmentation.
