What is the Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation procedure?

Is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Right for you?

Known as “Structural Fat Grafting,” this process has been used successfully for several decades, but science has advanced recently to significantly improve the fat cell retention results.  This procedure is safe and straightforward relative to other forms of breast augmentation, including implants and fillers.

Women undergo adverse body changes due to age and childbirth. With time, aging causes wrinkling and loose skin. Pregnancies also cause changes in breast size and eventually sagging sets in due to breastfeeding. Genetic factors may cause an underdeveloped bosom or some asymmetry in one’s form. All these esthetic imperfections can benefit from fat transfer procedures.

How do I prepare for my liposuction procedure?

  • Do not take thinning drugs like Aspirin and Ibuprofen several days before
  • Avoid drinking alcohol or smoking
  • If you are underweight, the doctor may suggest a weight gain program
  • On the day of your surgery, have a regular breakfast
  • A Baseline mammogram may be needed
  • Organize for a person to take you to the clinic and drive you back home

What kind of results can I expect?

Following surgery, the breasts will appear initially fuller. Most patients state that the liposuction portion is associated with more discomfort than the actual breast transfer procedure. Patients can experience a 1-2 cup size increase from the surgery, followed by a decrease in size due to fat loss. It is typical to lose 1/3 of the transferred fat a month or two after the breast augmentation surgery. Wearing a compression garment will help the fat stay in place until it settles and forms blood vessels in the fat area. After that, you can expect to see the final size and look of your new figure.

The procedure subtly improves contour and symmetry while giving you upper pole fullness. If those are your goals, then this will be an ideal procedure for you

What is the downtime for the procedure?

The usual downtime for this procedure is 2-3 days. The majority of patients are back to work in 3 days. Remember to avoid applying pressure on your breasts during the early phases of recovery. When sleeping, lie on your back. Keep the compression garment on for the period recommended, and only take it off when the doctor says it’s okay to do so. Mild to moderate exercise is encouraged after the first few weeks, but it must be low impact.

We advise patients to avoid any rigorous jumping or running for two months after the procedure.

Can I wear my regular bra after the surgery?

The doctor will suggest a special bra after the surgery. After a week, you will be able to wear a regular bra.

What is the cost of the procedure?

If you come in for a liposuction procedure, you can add the added Fat transfer Breast Augmentation for $4,000. Why let your fat go to waste? You can have it repurposed for a gorgeous cleavage. Up a cup or two?
