Breast Augmentation with Fat
Many women who are unsatisfied with the appearance of their small or deflated breasts turn to breast augmentation. Although plastic surgery can offer long-lasting results for many women, some patients may worry that breast implants will not look natural. Fortunately, there is a less invasive procedure that can enhance the breasts without using implants. Breast augmentation using fat transfer, also known as autologous fat transfer, is a safe and effective alternative that can improve the size and shape of a woman’s breasts.Have a Question
What are the benefits of Fat Transfer?
Breast augmentation with fat transfer can help patients reach their beauty goals by providing them with the following benefits:
Fat transfer offers patients a completely natural alternative to breast implants. This procedure can enhance the size, volume, and shape of the breasts.
With fat transfer, there is no need for large incisions. Instead, only a few small incisions are required to harvest and inject the fat into the breasts, leaving behind no scars. The transferred fat will develop a new blood supply over a period of a few days.
In addition to enhancing the size and volume of your breasts, fat transfer also comes with the added benefit of body contouring. Because liposuction is used to harvest fat from different areas of your body, like the thighs or abdomen, it can reshape your figure and provide you with slimmer, improved contours.
Am I a good candidate for Breast Augmentation with Fat?
Women interested in undergoing breast augmentation using fat transfer must be in good health, have enough excess fat to harvest, and have realistic expectations. Breast augmentation using fat transfer is ideal for women who:
- Want natural-looking results
- Prefer a modest increase in breast size
- Would like volume added to their breasts
- Would like to improve body contours elsewhere
- Do not want implants
What is Breast Augmentation with Fat like?
Breast enhancement using fat transfer is a safe surgical procedure that is performed on an outpatient basis. Because this involves two procedures that are performed simultaneously, Dr. Friedlander will examine your breasts as well as the areas of fat excess, such as the abdomen, back, hips, and inner and outer thighs to determine the best area to harvest fat from.
How It Works
During your procedure, fat will be harvested from the predetermined area using gentle liposuction. This will result in smoother and slimmer contours in the region where the fat was removed. Once the fat has been cleaned and purified, it will be carefully injected into your breasts in multiple locations to promote the best results.
What is the recovery like after Breast Augmentation with Fat?
For the first few weeks after your procedure, Dr. Friedlander recommends a post-surgical compression bra and provides a compression garment to allow your breasts and body to heal. Some swelling, bruising, and soreness will occur but should resolve after a few days. Make sure to limit all physical activities for four weeks or until Dr. Friedlander clears you. The size of your breasts will begin to stabilize in about two to three months.
What results can I expect after Breast Augmentation with Fat?
Autologous fat transfer can increase the size of your breasts by one half to one cup size without implants, thus improving your overall appearance and self-esteem. You can expect long-lasting results if you maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.
What are the risks and side effects of Breast Augmentation with Fat?
As with most surgical procedures, there are some risks involved with fat transfer to the breasts. These risks are uncommon but include:
- Fat necrosis
