Fat transfer breast augmentation is an advanced plastic surgery technique to enhance the breast size without the use of implants. This procedure can help develop longer-lasting and natural looking results with a less invasive surgical approach. 

At the time of the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will showcase breast augmentation with fat grafting before and after pictures to the patient to allow them to achieve an understanding of the potential outcomes of the procedure. 

Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides fat grafting breast enhancement to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Tysons Corner, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and surrounding locations.


What are Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation Before and After Pictures?

Breast enhancement with fat transfer ‘before and after’ photographs refer to a pair or group of images of previous patients who have undergone the same procedure with effective results. 

These pictures are taken prior to the procedure and after the surgery when the post-op swelling and bruising have resolved, and the complete outcomes of the procedure are visible.

The surgeon will acquire these pictures with the express consent of the patient and show them to new patients in a discreet and judicious manner. On top of this, the surgeon will not reveal the identity of the patient, according to standard protocol. The sole purpose of displaying these images is to allow the new patient to achieve clarity on the potential fat transfer breast enhancement outcomes.

Dr. Sundin is outstanding at marketing but in this case it’s not about enlightening a vague product or service. His work is right there for anyone to see and if you have Internet access you can make a determination without notifying anyone. 

That’s right, with images this clear a patient can make a crucial decision without their mother in law for instance ever becoming the wiser. 



The breasts are a prominent part of a woman’s body. For this reason, women are quite concerned about any procedure impacting the appearance of their breasts. The surgeon can showcase fat transfer breast augmentation ‘before and after’ images to provide a new patient with reassurance on whether this procedure is capable of meeting their breast enlargement goals.

Some patients may require only limited correction with a small amount of fat transfer. Others may need maximum breast enhancement possible with fat transfer. Irrespective of the case, the patient can make a better decision after seeing fat transfer breast augmentation before and after pictures. 


Combining Pictures with Text

New patients may find it beneficial if descriptive text detailing the procedure, the reasons for which it was performed, and how it addressed the patient’s unique issues accompanies breast augmentation with fat transfer before and after photos. 

Clear, concise, and succinct descriptions allow the surgeon to describe the journey of a previous patient. This can be an important element of before and after image galleries as patients can connect more effectively with pictures while stories enable them to recall the associated details more clearly. 


Sharing Your Photos

Surgeons can share breast augmentation with fat transfer plastic surgery before and after photos to educate patients as well as raise more awareness on this cutting-edge procedure. They may circulate the pictures digitally in the following ways:

Online photo gallery: Developing a before and after image gallery on the practice website which is the case here. The amazing aspect in this situation is digital technology. If a picture is worth a thousand words which is an old adage a digital image must be worth three times that.  Creating portfolios: Create a picture portfolio to show to new patients seeking the same procedure.  Improving blog posts: Adding photos to a blog post is an effective way to offer prospective patients visual proof of procedure results.  Social media sites: The use of images is an effective way to optimize social media posts. But it is important to use discretion when posting on public platforms.

A comprehensive ‘before and after’ image gallery can be both an educational and promotional tool for the surgeon and their practice. It can showcase their skills and expertise while educating new patients on complex plastic surgeries such as breast augmentation with fat transfer.
