Fat Transfer to Breasts
There are many cosmetic procedures aimed at enhancing one’s look. A few have overcome the test of time. However, with innovation and technological advancement, the approaches employed undergo significant change. One such procedure is fat transfer. Medicine evolves to produce better results and improve the success rate. With fat transfer, innovation has seen fat transfer involve better tissue harvesting methods, as well as the treatment of harvested tissue before injection into a different body part. This inspired approach has improved the shelf life of transferred cells, and the results of this type of cosmetic surgery remain evident for longer as a result.
Why Have a Fat Transfer to Your Breasts?
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 imbalances may be remedied using fat transfers. Anxiety easily sets in as a result of dissatisfaction with one’s looks, and you may end up sitting out of group photos, fun moments at Chicago’s scenic beaches, or other fun activity. The dressing also remains a challenge, especially among women who have pronounced asymmetry.
A healthy diet has little or no effect on these challenges, with exercise proving an unpractical approach as well.

How are Fat Transfer Done?

For underweight individuals, the physician may recommend a weight gain in the lead up to your operation. There has to be enough tissue for one to achieve the desired outcome. The harvesting phase typically takes fat from two or more places in the abdomen and thighs.
Liposuction is the method of choice in harvesting fat, and it tones the donor sites, enhancing your looks in the process. Doctors conduct liposuction with local anesthesia. The donor site remains numb as a tiny incision enables the harvesting of tissue using a micro-cannula. The harvested cells then undergo treatment for the removal of excess fluid and dead or abnormal cells. Getting a healthy sample is crucial at this stage, and tissue stands a better chance of survival if it is healthy and devoid of excess fluid. A
The surgeon then injects the purified cells into the destination site, in this case, the breasts. The administration of local anesthesia ensures your comfort throughout the procedure. The use of a tiny needlepoint to reintroduce the treated cells greatly aids the precision of the process, and this subsequently leads to great results.

It pays to have someone assisting with some of the more cumbersome tasks at this point so that you get enough rest. More physically exerting duties may resume after a couple of weeks, or as advised by your physician. Remember to avoid applying pressure on your breasts during the early phases of recovery.
