Fat Transfer To The Breasts
Do you consider your breasts to be too small? Has pregnancy, breastfeeding or simply ageing caused your breasts to sag? In these instances, you may wish to consider breast surgery.
When we think of breast surgery, we generally associate it with implants. This is offputting for some women, who do not want to introduce a foreign item such as an implant in their body. This is why a fat transfer to the breasts is sometimes considered a desirable way to improve the aesthetics of your breasts without the need for implants.
Am I suitable for a fat transfer to the breasts?
Fat transfer to breasts is ideal for people who want subtle natural looking enhancements of the breasts. However, the individual has to have enough body fat to be transferred to the breasts.
We recommend breast augmentation with implants to individuals who do not have enough fat in their body to go ahead with fat transfer to breasts. We may also have to refuse the procedure to individuals considering to have children as pregnancy and childbirth can affect the results.
What can I expect during surgery?
Prior to the surgery, you will have a consultation with one of our surgeons.
The decision to have a fat transfer to breasts is a major step for most women and extremely personal. The surgeon therefore always guides and supports his prospective patients through every stage of this process. During an initial consultation at our clinic, you will discuss your reasons for wanting this procedure and will undergo a thorough medical check-up.
The consultation begins by having an opportunity to discuss your ideas, concerns and expectations about the natural breast augmentation procedure with your surgeon, and ask any relevant questions you may have.
The fat transfer to breasts procedure is performed by highly skilled breast augmentation experts who will utilize fat deposits from a donor area and transfer it to the breasts for a natural enhancement.
Liposuction is first performed on the donor area to collect the best quality fat cells to be transferred. The fat is collected in a filter to purify it and then collected in multiple syringes. Once this is done the fat is injected back into the breasts.
What is the recovery period like?
Following the surgery, there will be some swelling and bruising for the first few weeks that will fade away over time. The result will be noticeable after the swelling has gone down. We recommend our patients to avoid any strenuous activity for at least 4 to 6 weeks for the area treated to heal fully.
Fat transfer to breasts can help achieve one whole cup size with a very natural looking result.
The achievable result will depend on the surgeon’s skills to obtain best quality fat and equally the patient’s ability to retain the transferred fat cells. Some fat cells will be absorbed naturally by the body and cannot be prevented. Ageing will also have an impact on the result achieved.
