Breast Augmentation Using Fat Transfer Overview

Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting or autologous fat transfer, is a cosmetic surgery that involves removing fat from one part of the body and injecting it into another area to enhance its shape or size. Plastic surgeons have used this technique for decades to smooth body contours, fill in skin depressions caused by accidents or tissue removal, correct breast asymmetry resulting from cancer treatments or breast reconstruction, add volume to the face and hands, and much more.
While frequently used to enhance the results of implant-based breast augmentation, more and more patients are asking about using only fat transfer to augment their breasts. Knowing the pros and cons of using fat transfer to augment the breast can help you decide if it is right for you.

Advantages of Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer

There are several advantages to using fat transfer for breast augmentation. For one, it is a less invasive procedure than traditional breast implant surgery and can result in less scarring and a faster recovery time. Additionally, because the fat is taken from the patient’s own body, there is no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection. Because there is no implanted medical device, the risk of developing capsule contracture is almost nonexistent. Finally, the results of fat transfer tend to look and feel more natural than breast implants, as the fat integrates with the surrounding breast tissue and takes on the characteristics of the patient’s own breasts.

Planning For Breast Augmentation Surgery

It’s important to note that fat transfer may not be the right option for everyone. It is typically only recommended for patients looking for a modest increase in breast size, as the amount of fat that can be injected is limited. Additionally, a patient must have enough excess fat in other areas of their body to be harvested and transferred to the breasts. Patients may need several fat grafting surgeries to achieve the desired result. Finally, the cost of breast augmentation using fat transfer is typically higher than that of traditional breast augmentation using breast implants. Patients should schedule a consultation with Dr. Peter Butler, Dr. Jocelyn Leveque, or Dr. Nathan Patterson to discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure and determine if it is the right option for them.

Breast Augmentation Using Fat Transfer Procedure

The procedure typically involves three main steps:

  1. Harvesting: The surgeon first removes fat from areas of the body where there is an excess, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs, using liposuction. The fat is processed and purified to prepare it for injection.

  2. Injection: The surgeon injects the purified fat into the breasts using small, carefully placed injections. This process is typically repeated several times to achieve the desired size and shape.

  3. Recovery: After the procedure, patients may experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort, which typically resolve within a few days. Patients may also need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks to help the healing process.
