Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

You’ve heard of breast augmentation with implants.  But have you heard of the fat transfer breast augmentation women are raving about?

Fat transfer breast augmentation is literally the transfer of fat from one place on your body where you’d like to be slimmer — to the breasts. It’s a highly effective procedure for simultaneously getting rid of stubborn fat and enhancing your breasts. The results can be outstanding.

Patient satisfaction after fat transfer breast augmentation with Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, Nicholas Lahar, M.D. is high. Women report loving the way their breasts can look larger while also being 100% natural.

What Is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Fat transfer breast augmentation procedure in Beverly Hills is a cosmetic surgery that can enhance the size of the breasts and correct slight imperfections in breast symmetry and shape. It involves two smaller procedures: liposuction and the reinjection of body fat.

The goal of any fat transfer procedure is to slim one area of the body where there is excess fat and plump up another area (in this case, the breasts) where more volume is desired. Liposuction is performed to remove the excess fat. Most patients want liposuction on their abdomen, trunk, flanks or possibly on their upper arms or thighs.

The fat is then carefully processed and purified outside the body. Finally, your surgeon will reinject the fat into your breasts, taking care to create natural looking volume and curves.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Fat Transfer?

Patients who are dissatisfied with the current appearance of their breasts and would like more volume or symmetry are good candidates for a Beverly Hills breast fat transfer.

Patients may have lost volume due to aging, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or any other reason. Some patients have always wanted to add volume to their breasts.

One important thing to note about this procedure is that those who desire significant enlargement of their breasts may not qualify. Fat transfer breast augmentation can generally increase the size of a woman’s breasts by 25% to 50% of a cup size.

This can be a significant and notable increase for many women. But certainly, others who would like a bigger change may wish to pursue implants.

In order to be a good candidate for a breast fat transfer, patients must also:

  • Be non-smokers
  • Be in good overall physical health
  • Not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have adequate excess fat from which to harvest fat

What to Expect During the Fat Grafting to Breast Procedure

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Beverly Hills and Los Angeles After anesthesia has been administered to the patient, liposuction will be performed on the areas of the body where fat is to be taken out.

Liposuction involves the creation of small incisions around the target area. Dr. Lahar will then use a special implement called a cannula to suction out the excess fat, leaving the area slimmer with natural contours. These incisions will then be closed, and the removed fat will be processed.

The final stage of the fat transfer process is the reinjection of the processed fat into the breasts. Before surgery, you and Dr. Lahar will have determined exactly where the reinjected fat should go in order to achieve your ideal breast shape and size. The fat will then be injected, leaving no scars behind.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Recovery

When compared with many other common plastic surgeries, there is minimal recovery required for fat transfer breast augmentation. Patients should take a short amount of time off work — usually around one week.

During this time, it’s important not to exert yourself physically or lift anything heavy. Wear your surgical bra and other garments according to your surgeon’s instructions. Do not expose your incisions to sunlight or water. Relax, rest, and eat healthy food.

Finally, be sure to treat your breasts tenderly, especially during the initial recovery period. Any undue stress, straining, or pressure on the area could cause the relocated fat to be reabsorbed by your body, thus inhibiting your results.
