Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Utilizing liposuction techniques, this procedure harvests fat from one part of your body and ‘shift’ it into your breasts. This is a stellar choice and a natural breast augmentation alternative for females who seek a minor increase in breast size without the use of breast implants. Aside from increasing one’s breast size, this procedure can also be used in reconstruction of the breast after a lumpectomy or mastectomy. This breast augmentation procedure has also been proven to be an effective treatment for correcting the shape and size of underdeveloped or misshaped breasts. Dr. Scott Newman is highly trained in performing fat transfer breast augmentation procedures so you will be in good hands.
Understanding the Procedure
When a patient desires to undergo fat transfer breast augmentation, the surgeon will choose a viable donor site such as the patient’s love handles (flanks), thighs, or tummy. The fat is then harvested via a special liposuction technique as it is needed to prevent fat necrosis. Pure fat is then processed from the suction fluid and used to develop enriched stem cell concentrations, which offer better results and enhances the healing process.
Next, hundreds of tiny individual fat droplets are then meticulously and skillfully injected into the breast site with a cannula. After the harvested fat is deposited into the new site, it will be incorporated within the existing matrix of adipose tissue, allowing the patient’s breasts to enlarge naturally.
After the procedure is completed, the patient may experience mild to moderate bruising and swelling of the breasts, and the area where the fat was harvested from. Compression garments is recommended and will be provided to minimize swelling and discomfort in those areas. Remember, the breast now consists of added live cells so they cannot be compressed for at least two weeks. In addition, you must avoid sleeping on your stomach and avoid other activities that put direct pressure on your breasts. In most cases, you will be able to return to work within five days for sedentary job holders, and a week for those whose work requires more active movement.

Should You Consider Breast Implant Surgery or Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
Fat transfer breast augmentation is more suited to patients who are looking to shape and slightly enhance their breasts whereas breast implant surgery can be utilized for maximum breast augmentation. If you hope to achieve a ¼ to ½ cup-size increase or more, breast implant surgery is recommended.
