Breast Augmentation Using Fat Transfer Procedure

Breast augmentation using fat transfer is a straightforward procedure. The cosmetic surgeon will try and make the fat removal process as pain-free and safe as possible by using their experience with advanced liposuction techniques. The method is less involved as compared to conventional breast augmentation through implants technique once the fat is removed.

This is because the procedure doesn’t involve any large incisions. You don’t have to worry about the placement of implants under or over the breast muscle. Breast augmentation using fat transfer procedure is performed in the following way:

Gentle liposuction using fine cannulas is employed first for removing fat from various body parts, such as the abdomen, love handles, and thighs. Fat is processed in a sterile environment for removing liquids and impurities. Fat is injected in the breasts for achieving the desired volume, size, and shape. Breast augmentation using fat transfer is performed as an outpatient procedure. You should be able to return home the same day.

Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer Results

You should see an increase of 1 to 1.5 cup size depending on the current breast cup size and chest measurement. Adding fat to breasts is quite possibly the most natural and softest feeling way of enhancing cup size. This is because the breasts are mostly made up of fat to begin with.

One of the greatest benefits of using own fat for augmenting breast tissue is that the fat doesn’t need to be removed or changed in the future unlike implants. Fat cells never need to be removed once they are completely incorporated within their new environment.

Cosmetic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and nearby areas for fat grafting of the breast local anesthesia procedure.
