How does fat transfer for breast augmentation work? Am I a candidate?
Many women are interested in breast enhancement without implants. Fat transfer is the answer to this issue. Liposuction is performed in a body region like the abdomen, thigh or back. The fat from the liposuction is sterilely harvested and infused into the breast. Techniques have evolved to improve the quality of fat placed and optimize the “take” of the fat placed in the breast, which is variable. The key to this procedure is having a donor site that can spare the fat, and that is the trick with many women who pursue this procedure. The results include an increased breast size of ½ to a whole cup, and lift is minimal. Other areas we fat graft include the buttock and face.
Surgery is performed under anesthesia and is outpatient. Recovery is fast, with reasonable return to work in one week. Scars are minimal, barely visible.
