Some women want rounder, fuller breasts, but prefer a natural approach. Fat transfer breast augmentation is designed to enhance the breasts with a patient’s own body fat. This breast enhancement option may be ideal for women who want a modest increase in breast size and very soft, natural results.

What is fat transfer breast augmentation?

Also known as fat grafting or analogous breast augmentation, fat transfer breast augmentation uses liposuction to harvest fat from other parts of the body, such as the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs, after which the fat is processed and injected into the breasts. As some of the transferred fat cells will be absorbed by the body, more fat than initially needed is generally injected into the breasts.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

What is recovery like after fat transfer breast augmentation?

Initial recovery time after fat transfer breast augmentation is approximately one to three days. Any swelling and soreness should subside over the next few weeks. Complete healing can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. We will advise you on when to resume your normal daily activities.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation FAQ's

Who is a good candidate for analogous breast augmentation?

Fat transfer may be a good option for women who want modest breast enhancement but do not want breast implants. The best candidates for this procedure should:

  • Have good skin tone and elasticity: Fat transfer is not designed to lift sagging breasts.
  • Have enough fat to harvest from other areas to achieve desired results: Breast enhancement with fat grafting requires that enough fat is available for harvesting.
  • Desire only a modest increase in breast size: Fat transfer does not provide the same degree of augmentation as breast implants.

What are the advantages of fat transfer for breast augmentation?

  • Fat transfer breast augmentation gives you “two for one” benefits. It helps slim down problem areas, such as the belly, flanks, or thighs, while enhancing the breasts in the same procedure.
  • It achieves a modest increase in breast size and improves breast shape and symmetry.
  • The procedure leaves no scars on the breasts and only tiny scars at the donor sites where liposuction is performed.
  • There is no risk of rejection or allergic reaction using the patient’s own fat.
  • Results look and feed 100% natural.
