Fat transfer to breast overview

What is Fat Transfer to Breast

A fat transfer breast augmentation is a popular alternative to breast implants. This technique uses liposuction and fat grafting to move fat cells from other parts of the body to the breasts. 

Many patients prefer a fat transfer to a traditional breast augmentation because it produces very natural results. Additionally, it removes excess fat from other parts of the body, creating a more balanced, contoured silhouette.

How Does a Fat Transfer to Breast Work? 

During this procedure, the surgeon harvests fat from other areas of the body, such as the thighs, stomach, or buttocks. This is done using liposuction, where the surgeon puts a small tube under the skin and uses vacuum technology to remove the fat. 

The fat is then strategically injected into the breasts and sculpted to achieve your desired look. Because the fat is from your own body rather than a donor, there's no risk of rejection. Some patients will pair the procedure with a breast lift to minimize sagging.

Am I a Good Candidate For a Fat Transfer to Breast?

This fat transfer procedure is best for patients who want to increase the size of their breasts while removing fat from other parts of the body. You'll need enough fat in other parts of your body to harvest safely. 

Candidates should not be smokers or have any underlying conditions that could affect the success of the surgery. For example, you should not be actively pregnant, breastfeeding, or undergoing breast cancer treatment at the time of surgery. Patients also must be over the age of 18. 

Additionally, fat transfer patients should have realistic expectations for the procedure. While the procedure will increase the size of your breasts and change your body contour, it won't dramatically change your overall appearance.

Benefits of a Fat Transfer to Breast

This form of cosmetic surgery comes with many unique benefits. Here's why many patients are opting to transfer fat rather than have breast implants. 

Natural Look

Since breasts naturally contain fat, a fat transfer results in a very natural size increase. The shape and size of the breast will suit your natural frame, rather than overpowering it. 

Improved Body Contour

Since fat is removed from other parts of your body, this fat transfer can give you a slimmer, more toned look. Regular exercise and a healthy diet will help you maintain these results after surgery. 

Minimal Risk

Breast implants come with the risk of capsular contracture or implant rupture, which requires future surgery to correct. A fat transfer doesn't come with these health risks. 

Improved Confidence

Many patients find that this type of body sculpting helps them achieve their desired figure. This can give you a confidence boost and help you feel more comfortable in your skin. 

Expectations on the Day of Your Fat Transfer Procedure

Prior to your fat transfer, you will have a consultation with Dr. Troell. During the consultation, we will talk about your expectations and perform a brief health screening to make sure you are an appropriate candidate for the procedure. We will also provide detailed instructions to help you prepare for your plastic surgery. 

This is an outpatient procedure, which means you will be able to return home at the end of the day. However, you will need a friend or family member to drive you home. The procedure takes approximately four hours to complete. 

Liposuction is done under general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep for the entirety of the procedure. You may feel drowsy or disoriented for a few hours after surgery. 

Recovery From a Fat Transfer - What to Expect After

After your surgery, you will need to rest at home for several days to let your body heal. You may need a friend or family member to help you with basic household tasks. Most patients take a week away from work to recover.

You will experience moderate pain, swelling, and bruising around your chest. These symptoms will be most intense during the first few days after surgery, but will improve in the weeks following. We will prescribe pain medication to keep you comfortable as you heal. 

You will need to wear a compression wrap and surgical bra as you recover from this procedure. Avoid tight-fitting clothing that could put extra pressure on your breasts. You will also need to sleep on your back to avoid putting pressure on your breasts as they heal. A surgical pillow can help you sleep more comfortably. 

After a week, you will be able to go back to work and resume gentle daily activities. However, you will need to wait until you've received permission from Dr. Troell to start exercising again. You will continue to experience mild swelling for approximately six months after the procedure. At the six-month mark, your fat transfers will be fully settled and you will see the final results.
