Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer

Are you looking for information about fat transfer breast augmentation? Check out our expert guide from the experts in cosmetic surgery in Miami.

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery, and over the years more options have been developed to provide results tailored to your precise needs.
Better technology has enabled new techniques, giving a choice of shapes and materials. This means that alongside the traditional silicone and saline, it’s now possible to have a more natural type of breast augmentation which uses fat cells from your own body.
Although you will still end up with beautiful, bigger breasts, there are some fundamental differences with this type of breast augmentation surgery compared to the conventional approach. We’re going to run through all the key facts to help you decide if it’s right for you.

What is Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer?

Just like all breast augmentation procedures, this process is designed to increase the volume of your breasts. However, rather than making an incision to insert implants, fat cells from your own body will be injected.

Sometimes described as a natural breast augmentation, the process reshapes your whole body, not just your breasts. This is because the surgeon uses liposuction to obtain the fat cells, which means it’s effectively two procedures in one.

Using body fat for breast augmentation allows you to remove unwanted fat from any part of your body, giving you a more sculpted look overall. For anyone wanting to lose fat as well as increase breast size, this is a huge advantage.

Key Differences

It’s important to understand that the result of using a fat transfer may be slightly different to breast augmentation using implants.

Although your breast size will increase, fat cells can’t lift breasts, so can’t combat sagging or the effects of aging. If you like the higher, lifted look that traditional breast augmentation can provide, fat transfer may not be the right option for you.

It’s also not possible to drastically increase your breast size using fat transfer. It’s ideal to increase by one or maybe two cup sizes, but no more.

On the flip side, fat transfer breast augmentation delivers a very natural look. As there are no foreign bodies inserted and the volume is achieved with your own fat cells, the result is fuller breasts which won’t look surgically enhanced.

A Safer Option

You will still need to give yourself time to recover, typically 1-3 weeks. You can normally resume full activities within 6 weeks.

However, as there are no artificial implants being inserted, the healing process can be easier. Fat cells are injected, so there are no large incisions or scars, and there’s a lower risk of infection.

Although modern breast augmentation is very safe, there is a small risk of the implant rupturing or moving. This involves further surgery to correct, which means further expense and inconvenience. With fat transfer this isn’t a risk, giving extra peace of mind.

Along with preferring the natural texture and appearance, safety is one of the main reasons why fat transfer breast augmentation is chosen.

What to Expect From the Process?

Before you go ahead with the process, your surgeon will agree with you which is the best site to remove fat cells, and the overall look you want to achieve.

During the surgery, the fat cells will be extracted and purified before being injected into the breast area. Your surgeon may inject a larger amount, because it’s normal for some fat cells to be reabsorbed by the body. This means it may take a little while for the final result to be visible.

There is a lot to consider with all types of cosmetic surgery, and breast augmentation with fat transfer is no exception. Here’s a quick round-up of the pros and cons you’ll want to consider:
