Although breast augmentation with implants remains the popular choice for women desiring larger breasts, there are alternative techniques like fat transfer breast augmentation that provide very good results. But what exactly is fat transfer breast augmentation, and who is a good candidate.
What Is a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
Fat transfer breast augmentation uses fat taken from other parts of the body to increase the size and shape of the breasts. The fat cells are harvested via liposuction from areas that typically have excess fat (such as the abdomen, hips, and flanks). After being processed, the fat cells are injected into the breasts.
The results of the procedure will vary, as it depends on how many of the fat cells survive after being transferred. In some cases an additional treatment may be needed to achieve the desired volume.
Benefits of fat transfer breast augmentation
Fat transfer is a more natural approach to breast augmentation since it uses the patient’s own fat cells, instead of synthetic implants. As a result, the breasts have a very natural appearance.
With fat transfer breast augmentation patients have the added benefit of contouring other parts of the body with liposuction.
Who is a good candidate for fat transfer breast augmentation?
Fat transfer breast augmentation is a good option for women wanting to restore volume to the breasts after pregnancy or weight loss. Breast augmentation with fat transfer provides subtle breast enhancement results, as it increases the breast by about 1 cup size. It is therefore ideal for women desiring a modest increase in breast size.
Candidates for fat transfer breast augmentation must have enough fat cells that can be harvested for the procedure.
