You will be a suitable candidate for fat transfer to the breasts if you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts, and are wanting to increase the size without the use of implants. However, you will need to have enough fat in other areas of your body to complete the transfer and achieve the desired results.
Liposuction will be used to remove fat cells from a donor area of the body, which may be the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks or arms. The fat is then purified, before being injected into the breasts to increase the size.
The surgery involves small incisions for the liposuction which allows the surgeon to insert the cannula. Further incisions will also need to be made underneath or around the breasts. These incisions will be very small, as the cannulas are small and thin. The scars will look more noticeable after the surgery, however, with time they will fade in size and colour.
A fat transferred is often preferred by those who wish to have larger breasts but without the use of a foreign object (an implant). There is also less risk afterwards, as patients will not experience capsular contracture, and will not experience any loss of sensation in the breasts.
However, fat transfer has limitations. You may not be able to achieve the same size as you can with breast implants. If you are wanting particularly large breasts, you may not have enough fat available. With a fat transfer, you will generally be able to increase your breasts by one cup size.
You will be able to achieve natural looking breasts which are increased in size by one cup size.
You should be able to maintain your results as long as you maintain a stable weight. As natural fat cells are injected into the breasts, some of these will be absorbed by the body, so you may notice the size of the breasts will decrease. If you lose weight, you may notice a further loss in size.
