What Is a Fat Transfer for Breasts?

Fat transfer breast augmentation represents a remarkable advancement in cosmetic surgery, offering an alternative to traditional breast implant surgery.  Also known as breast augmentation with fat grafting, this procedure is often a win-win for women — enhancing breasts while eliminating areas of unwanted fat at the same time. 

Using a gentle liposuction technique to extract fat from the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and other areas, this process creates minimal scarring. After the fat is extracted, it is then injected into the breasts and formed to shape a natural, volumized breast.

The Benefits of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation: Why Choose a Fat Transfer for Your Breasts?

Reduced Risk of Complications

The risk of leakage, deflation, or buildup of scar tissue is eliminated. Breast fat transfer is associated with a lower risk of complications common to breast implants, such as capsular contracture or implant rupture.

Less Traumatic Procedure

A fat transfer is less traumatic to the body than traditional breast augmentation, resulting in less recovery time. The gentle nature of fat grafting results in less discomfort during the recovery phase.

Natural Results

While implants need to be replaced and checked frequently, fat transfers are natural and have long-lasting results without the maintenance of implants. This integration of the body’s own tissue supports a seamless enhancement.

Reduced Recovery Time

Patients typically experience a quicker recovery period with fat transfer to the breast. The procedure is less invasive than traditional breast implants, allowing for a more comfortable healing process.

Safer Alternative

The risks are no more severe than those of other surgical procedures. With no foreign objects introduced into the body, fat transfer breast augmentation significantly reduces the risk of infection and other complications associated with breast implants.

Lower Risk of Rejection

Using the patient’s own fat for augmentation reduces the risk of allergic reactions or rejection by the body, making it a safer and more reliable option. This also ensures a more natural-looking and feeling result, as the material used is from the patient’s own body.

Customizable Volume and Shape

The technique allows for precise control over breast size and shape, offering a tailored approach to breast enhancement that meets individual aesthetic preferences.

Compatibility With Other Procedures

This method can be easily combined with other cosmetic procedures for comprehensive body reshaping and enhancement, allowing patients to address multiple areas of concern in a single treatment plan.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Am I a Good Candidate for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

It will be determined during your consultation whether a fat transfer is right for you, but generally, women who have realistic expectations, desire a subtle enhancement, do not have a family history of breast cancer, and would like to reduce excess fat in other areas of their bodies are approved. Women who desire a more dramatic increase in breast size will most likely not find satisfaction with a fat transfer.

What Are the Risks and Side Effects of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Slight swelling, bruising, and discomfort may be experienced at both the injection and donor sites after a fat transfer, which are easily controlled and temporary. Studies regarding breast enhancement using a fat transfer are ongoing, but overall adverse effects are minimal as this procedure uses your body’s own tissues.

What Results Can I Expect?

On average, breasts retain 60-80 percent of transferred fat. Following post-surgical instructions and allowing the breasts to heal properly will aid in the amount of fat that is retained. Results are long-term but will not prevent the effects of gravity, significant weight fluctuations, or the natural aging process.

How Long Does the Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Last?

The results of fat transfer breast augmentation can be long-lasting. While some of the transferred fat may be reabsorbed by the body within the first few months, the remaining fat typically remains stable. Patients can expect to maintain their enhanced breast volume for years, though significant weight fluctuations can affect the outcome.

How Does Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Impact Mammograms or Breast Screenings?

Fat transfer to the breast should not significantly impact mammograms or breast screenings. However, it’s important to inform your radiologist about the procedure, as some of the transferred fat can calcify and appear on mammograms. Experienced radiologists can distinguish these changes from abnormalities.
