Breast Augmentation Fat Transfer

Beginning with an extensive consultation with our expert Plastic Surgeons, you will be able to discuss your goals in order to identify the volume and shape for your breast augmentation fat transfer that will complement your body frame. Autologous fat breast augmentation (using fat from your own body) is an alternative to using an implant, or can add to a breast implant, either for further augmentation or to correct issues of the existing implants.

The process sees patients undergo breast augmentation by fat grafting, where fat is extracted from a donor area, typically from the abdomen, using liposuction before being specially prepared to be used in the augmentation procedure. The fat is transferred into the breast through tiny incisions to achieve the desired result.

About

Breast augmentation by fat grafting, also known as autologous fat breast augmentation, is a surgical procedure that involves using the patient's own fat from other areas of the body to enhance the size and shape of the breasts.

HOW DOES A BREAST AUGMENTATION FAT TRANSFER WORK?

The surgeon identifies areas of the patient's body with sufficient donor fat for the breast augmentation fat transfer, such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks, and harvests the fat using liposuction. Small incisions are made in the donor area, and a cannula or small tube is used to suction out the desired quantity of fat.

The harvested fat is then processed to remove impurities, such as blood, oil, and connective tissue, and to concentrate the healthy fat cells. This may involve centrifugation or other methods to separate the fat cells from other substances.

The processed fat is carefully injected into the breasts through small incisions made in inconspicuous locations, such as the breast crease, areola, or armpit. The surgeon uses a cannula or small syringe to meticulously inject the fat in multiple layers and planes, carefully distributing it to achieve the desired size, shape, and symmetry of the breasts.

Once the breast augmentation fat transfer is complete, the fat cells establish a blood supply from the surrounding tissue, which allows them to survive and integrate with the existing breast tissue. Some fat cells may be naturally absorbed by the body, while the majority will successfully establish themselves as permanent living tissue in the breasts.
