What is Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer?

Breast augmentation offered by Dr. Williams is one of the most popular surgical procedures for enhancing the projection and volume of the breasts. Though breast surgery with prosthetic implants is usually the norm with these procedures, most women do not find the idea of having synthetic material implanted into their bodies appealing. We offer a more organic approach: fat transfer breast augmentation.

Important Information

What Is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

The fat transfer, or autologous fat grafting, breast enlargement procedure employs the use of your body’s fat cells to enhance the volume of your breasts. The procedure incorporates liposuction to extract adipose tissues from fat-abundant areas of the body such as the buttocks, abdomen, and thighs. These cells are purified and then injected directly into the breasts.

This procedure solves the dual purpose of achieving fuller and shapelier breasts while getting rid of stubborn fat pockets from problem areas of your body. Autologous fat transfer is a minimally invasive technique that produces more natural results as compared to the traditional breast implant approach.

Ideal Candidates

During puberty, several women develop less breast tissue than others, leaving them feeling insecure about their body. And while getting breast implants is a popular approach to breast augmentation, it is not the most effective fix for all. An ideal candidate for fat transfer breast augmentation would be someone who:

  • Has enough excess body fat to transfer to their breasts in order to achieve their desired results
  • Wants to improve their body’s proportions by achieving subtle contouring and augmentation of their breasts
  • Desires a small to moderate (1/2 to 1 cup size) increase in their breast size
  • Would prefer achieving more natural look and feel for their augmented breasts
  • Is not considering having a child within the next year
  • Is looking for a minimally invasive procedure that does not put them on prolonged bed rest for complete recovery

The Procedure

Advantages of Fat Transfer over Breast Implants

The autologous fat transfer procedure is much less invasive than implant-based augmentation, since it involves harvesting the fat cells and transferring them into the breasts through minuscule needle-access sites.

The fat transfer procedure does not create a risk of capsular contracture, rippling of the breast skin, or rupture of the breast implants.

Unlike the breast implants that require regular maintenance and follow-up surgeries for replacement of collapsed prosthetics, fat transfer results are longer lasting and do not require any subsequent surgeries.

Along with helping you achieve fuller breasts, the fat transfer method helps to get rid of excess fat from your problem areas for a fitter and more sculpted body. This can serve to improve your body’s overall proportions.

How to Prepare for a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Preparing yourself emotionally will be crucial for a fat transfer breast augmentation. The decision to undergo this procedure should be your own choice and never the influence of others. Surround yourself with a support network that will assist you pre- and post-surgery.

Take care of your overall physical health as well. It is recommended that you eat protein-rich food to help wounds heal better and faster.

Smoking can lead to slower healing. Refrain from smoking four to six weeks before and after surgery to avoid complications during recovery.

Arrange for time off from work for one to two weeks, and secure your transportation to and from the facility. The recovery period will restrict your movement, so arrange for help around the house with meal preparation, chores, and other activities.

On the day of procedure, bathe with basic soap. Abstain from using lotion, deodorant, moisturizer, and other skin products to make sure there are no other chemicals on your skin during the procedure.

It is also important to avoid eating and drinking eight hours before the procedure to prevent aspiration and vomiting while the surgery is being performed.

The Recovery Process
Since fat transfer breast augmentation is less invasive than breast augmentation with implants, recovery is expected within one to two weeks. Swelling and bruising are normal during healing. Compression garments and medications will be required initially to help lessen these side effects.

Get plenty of rest, hydrate properly, and eat nutritious food. These will help speed up recovery and aid in sustaining the newly transplanted fat cells. Cut back on food containing salt, sugar, and refined carbohydrates, since these can increase inflammation and weaken the immune system.

Cost of Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer

The cost of Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer may vary, starting at $7250.
