Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation - How It Can Help You

Posted Mar 19 2013 3:13am

Fat transfer breast augmentation is a natural way of increasing the size of a woman's breasts. The procedure is also known as fat grafting or autologous fat transplantation. In this procedure of transfer, the surgeon would remove excess fat from the buttocks, love handles, abdomen, back and thighs via liposuction. Then, the purified fat is injected into the breasts for augmentation. In this procedure, there is simultaneous trimming down of stubborn fat deposits in other areas of the body. There are only a few plastic surgery centers that offer this procedure. Women considering this procedure must find an experienced and reliable plastic surgeon who can ascertain whether they can undergo this innovative breast enhancement procedure.

Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer -- the Procedure


The surgeon would use advanced and safe laser devices such as SmartLipo Triplex for carrying out liposuction. A small cannula is inserted through a tiny incision that the surgeon makes in the treatment area. Laser energy is delivered for the disruption of fat in areas such as the abdomen, waist and thighs where adipose tissue is in abundance. 3 unique laser wavelengths are used for melting the fat. Then, processing of the extracted fat is done for purification. This ensures that the rate of survival of viable fat cells is high. Sometimes, the surgeon would inject extra fat cells because it is not necessary that all fat cells would survive. Various factors are responsible for determining the success of the procedure:

  • The amount of existing breast fat and tissue
  • The amount of fat that would be transplanted into the breasts
  • The blood that the breasts receive

One can see the results within a period of six months.

The Right Candidate for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

This procedure is ideal for those women who:

  • Have experienced implant rejection
  • Want breast reconstruction after mastectomy
  • Have underdeveloped or misshapen breasts
  • Desire younger looking breasts

A good candidate for this surgery is one who has excess fat in some body areas, maintains realistic expectations and is in good health.

Benefits of the Procedure

  • Since no foreign materials are introduced in the body and the patient's own body fat is used, there is no chance of rejection by the body
  • No allergic reactions
  • Breasts are shaped up well
  • Breasts get a natural look and feel
Fat transfer breast augmentation can thus help you achieve a more attractive bust line and an improved body contour. Being a natural way of enhancing the breasts, this procedure is becoming more popular among women desiring youthful looking breasts.
