Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

La Jolla Fat transfer breast augmentation

One of the most exciting developments in breast enhancement, fat transfer breast augmentation is a natural way to subtly increase breast size. At Sadrian Plastic Surgery, we offer this option to our patients, particularly those who want a modest increase in breast size and want to avoid breast augmentation with implants.

How Does Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Work?

This a two-phased treatment involving the harvesting of healthy fat cells from another body area, and then injecting the cells into the breast to bring about a plumper, fuller look. The beauty of this treatment is that it involves your own fat cells – your body recognizes them, and when carefully injected into your breast, a percentage of these cells will become viable in their new location – creating plumper, more youthful breasts.

How Much Can I Enhance My Breasts With Fat Transfer?

Natural fat transfer cannot achieve as much increase in volume as is possible with implants, but typically can improve breast size by up to one cup size. If you want to add more volume, once the initial procedure is completed, we can schedule a subsequent fat transfer treatment.

How Fat Grafting Works

This treatment can produce a beautiful, natural looking result – as it is natural! The initial steps of the procedure involves the careful and gentle extraction of fat cells from waist, buttocks, or thighs. This fat is extracted with gentle liposuction, as it is necessary to maintain the integrity of the cells, so they will flourish when injected into the breasts. Once extracted, the cells are purified to remove other body fluids so only the cells remain. They are then injected in tiny droplets into the areas of the breast that need enhancement, typically at the top of the breasts.

How Much Fat Will Be Retained?

The care with which Dr. Sadrian performs this procedure is critical point in the percentage of fat cells that will settle and grow once transferred. It is expected that between fifty to eighty percent of the transferred cells will become viable.

How Long Do the Results Last?

The fat cells that become viable are there for the duration. While bodies change over time, you can expect long term results from the procedure.

What is the Recovery Time

During recovery, you will be required to follow these steps:

  • No pressure on the breasts.
  • You must sleep on your back if possible, or on your side.
  • You can return to work in about one week, once Dr. Sadrian gives you the okay.

As you have had minor liposuction, you will wear a compression garment to limit swelling in the initial stage of healing. There is the additional benefit that the donor area is now slimmer!
