Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer
If you are considering breast augmentation, you may be wondering if fat transfer is an option. Fat transfer breast augmentation involves taking fat from another area of your body and injecting it into the breasts. This can provide a natural-looking and -feeling breast augmentation option for those who want to avoid implants.
During the procedure, the surgeon will first liposuction fat from another area of your body, such as the thighs or abdomen. The fat is then purified and injected into the breasts. The amount of fat that can be transferred will depend on how much excess fat you have in other areas of your body.
One advantage of fat transfer breast augmentation is that it can help to contour your body in addition to increasing breast size. It can also provide a more natural-looking breast augmentation, as the injected fat will eventually become part of your own breast tissue.
How is it performed?
The surgery will take place under general anesthesia, so you will be asleep during the procedure.
First, the surgeon will make small incisions in the areas where fat will be removed from your body. A thin tube called a cannula will then be inserted through these incisions and used to suction out the fat. The fat will be collected in a sterile container and then purified.
Next, the surgeon will make incisions in your breasts, creating tiny tunnels called breast pockets. The purified fat will then be injected into these breast pockets. The surgeon may also use special techniques to ensure that the fat is evenly distributed.
Once the fat has been injected, the incisions will be closed with stitches. A surgical bra will then be placed over your breasts to support them as they heal.
Fat transfer breast augmentation may be a good option for you if you want to avoid implants and you have enough excess fat in other areas of your body. You should also be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the results of the procedure.
It’s important to note that fat transfer breast augmentation is not right for everyone. In some cases, it may not be possible to liposuction enough fat from other areas of your body to provide the desired increase in breast size. In these cases, implants may be the only option.
