Fat Transfer for Breast Augmentation

Fat transfer provides an alternative to those who are averse to using breast implants for breast augmentation surgery. Although it is not a suitable procedure for everyone, using your own fat to increase your breast size or improve your breast shape is a very popular choice. The fat transfer technique is also often used to soften the look of existing breast implants by to repair complications arisen from breast implants like wrinkling or rippling of the skin around the edge of the implant.

The process involves two procedures. First the fat is taken from your abdomen, butt or thighs using a standard liposuction procedure. The harvested fat is processed to leave only the healthy fat cells ready for the second procedure of injecting the fat. The surgeon is able to inject the fat little by little into targeted areas in order to form the desired breast size and shape.

Fat transfer for breast augmentation leaves very minimal scarring and compared to breast implant surgery. A small incision is made to remove the fat from the unwanted area and a needle incision is made in and round the breast. Another benefit to this procedure is that there is no risk of having an allergic reaction or rejection since the fat cells come from your own body.

One of the concerns with this procedure however is the amount of fat required to be harvested for this procedure. Once the fat is injected into the breast area, a large percentage is absorbed by the body and so the surgeon aims to over-inject into the site to allow for absorption. If a large amount of fat was absorbed then it may be necessary to return for a second procedure. Furthermore, if your weight fluctuates then this will also have an affect on your breast size.

Unlike breast implants, the fat transfer procedure does have some limitations regarding the volume by which the breast size is increased. Usually, the fat transfer procedure can only increase the breast size to around one cup size.Potential candidates must also have enough fat on their body to make this procedure successful.

If you are considering breast augmentation surgery, speak to your surgeon for more information and to find out if you are a good candidate for Fat Transfer for Breast Augmentation surgery.
