Fat transfer breast augmentation is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional breast implants. This procedure involves taking fat from another area of your body, such as your thighs or abdomen, and injecting it into your breasts to add volume. Fat transfer breast augmentation can also be used to improve the appearance of existing breast implants.
How is fat transfer breast augmentation performed?
Fat transfer breast augmentation is typically performed as an outpatient procedure using local anesthesia. First, a small incision is made in the donor area to remove excess fat. The fat is then purified and injected into the breasts using a syringe or cannula. The incisions are then closed with sutures or surgical tape.
What are the benefits of fat transfer breast augmentation?
- Minimally invasive – Fat transfer breast augmentation is much less invasive than traditional breast implants because only small incisions are made. There is also no need for general anesthesia, which carries its own risks.
- Customizable – Because you are using your own fat, this procedure can be customized to achieve your desired results
- Natural-looking – Fat transfer breast augmentation can give you a more natural look and feel than traditional implants because the injected fat behaves similarly to your own tissue. It also loses volume over time at the same rate as your own tissue, so you won’t have to worry about sudden changes in size.
- Long-lasting – Results from fat transfer procedures can last for many years, although touch-ups may be necessary as you age and your breasts change shape.
- Safe – Because fat transfer procedures use your own tissue, there is no risk of rejection or complications from an immune reaction.
Fat transfer breast augmentation offers many benefits over traditional implant surgery, including being minimally invasive, customizable, natural-looking, long-lasting, and safe. If you are considering breast augmentation, talk to your doctor about whether fat transfer might be right for you.
