Fat Grafting to the Breast

Breast lifts can raise, shape, and firm sagging breasts. If a woman wants to add volume, she may need to get breast implants too, but fat injections can also accomplish a subtle increase.

What is Breast Fat Grafting?

Fat transfer breast augmentation essentially uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body and inject it into your breasts. This is a breast augmentation option for women who are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size and would prefer natural results.

Am I a good candidate for Breast Fat Grafting?

You must have sufficient body fat in other areas that can be harvested. Furthermore, you must understand that you will see an increase of approximately one cup size. The best candidate for this procedure has sufficient body fat located in other areas on their body and are just looking for a small increase in breast size.

What can I expect from Breast Fat Grafting?

Fat grafting to the breast consists of two procedures performed in conjunction with one another: First, harvesting the fat, and second, placement of the fat into the breasts. To begin, fat is removed from a specific area of your body using liposuction. Then, the harvested fat is specially processed via centrifugation to separate out any unwanted components. Next, the fat is injected meticulously through tiny incisions to gradually increase the size of the breasts.

How long is recovery from Breast Fat Grafting?

A fat grafting procedure can sometimes take longer to perform. Recovery from this procedure also differs since both the breasts and the harvested fat donor site must heal.
