What is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Fat transfer breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses your own fat, gently liposuctioned from another part of your body. This fat can be taken from any areas that you would like to sculpt and slim where there is excess fat tissue, often the abdomen, thighs, or bottom. Fat is carefully removed with liposuction, then cleansed and purified. The purified fat cells are injected into the breasts to achieve a naturally attractive, larger shape.

Benefits of fat transfer breast augmentation

Fat transfer breast augmentation has a number of advantages for women looking for a more natural augmentation, including the following:

  • No incisions are made in the breasts
  • Scarring from liposuction is extremely minimal, sometimes non-existent
  • Fat transfer uses your own tissue, which results in no risk of it being rejected when transferred into the breasts
  • Nothing foreign is inserted into your body
  • A completely soft, natural look and feel is achieved
  • The area from which fat was donated is sculpted and slimmed
  • Breast size increases by 1-2 cup sizes
  • No risk of implant complications
  • Fat transfer can be used to replace implants that are no longer wanted

Am I a Candidate for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Fat transfer breast augmentation is for women who want to enhance their breasts one or two cup sizes and prefer augmentation with natural fat tissue instead of implants. Ideal candidates for fat transfer breast augmentation meet the following requirements:

  • Are generally in good health
  • Are not suffering from serious medical concerns
  • Do not smoke
  • Have adequate unwanted fat to be harvested (ideally, women undergoing this procedure have a BMI of 22 or higher)
  • Prefer a more natural breast look and feel
  • Have asymmetrical or uneven breasts they would like to be made symmetrical
  • Are at a stable weight they feel they can maintain
  • Do not want a very large breast size increase

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Procedure

Dr. Wirth will start with a thoughtful consultation to examine your breasts and medical history and understand your needs and goals. He will walk you through the details of the procedure to ensure you’re prepared and confident. At this time, he will also determine which part of your body you would like him to harvest the fat from.

The fat transfer breast augmentation procedure itself starts with local anesthesia. Once this has taken effect, the fat will be harvested with liposuction. Dr. Wirth will take care not to damage the fat cells, giving them a greater chance of viability once they are transferred into the breasts. The fat cells will be cleansed and purified to ensure the most healthy cells are used for transfer.

These fat cells will then be injected into the breasts in specific amounts and locations. Dr. Wirth will use his precision technique to create symmetrical, round, full, shapely breasts. Your breasts will be plumper and fuller immediately.

Recovery After Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

After your procedure, you will wear compression bandages around your breasts and around the fat donor sites. This bandage helps support the attractive shape of your new breasts and prevents swelling.

Each person’s recovery time varies based on which donor areas were chosen for fat harvest. Different areas respond and heal differently after liposuction. Typically, patients tend to require 1-2 days recovering and resting, and are able to return to work within a week. It will take 3-6 weeks before strenuous activity or exercise can be resumed.

How long will the results last after fat transfer?

Your body will eventually absorb some of the new fat cells in the breasts during the first few weeks of recovery. This is a natural occurrence and is expected and compensated for during the initial procedure.

After a month, the fat cells in your breasts will have fully stabilized, and there will be no further decrease. From this point forward, the results will depend on maintaining your weight. Significant weight loss may cause your breasts to decrease, while significant weight gain may cause your breasts to increase.
