Fat Transfer to the Breasts – How It Works
If you are looking to increase the firmness or size of your breasts you have more options than just implants. Fat transfer procedures use liposuction to remove fat from one area of your body and inject it into another. Fat transfer to breasts is an augmentation procedure that places fat tissue directly into your breasts. This type of procedure is perfect for those who want a more natural looking result and a small increase in breast size. Here is how it works:
Injecting the Fat
Fat transfer procedures utilize body jet liposuction that harvests fat tissue through streaming water. The stem cells from the extracted fat tissue are activated and directly injected into the breasts for an overall increase of size. The stem cells help you achieve the perfect results by growing new blood vessels in the breasts, aiding in healing and tightening the skin around your breasts through growth factors. Approximately 85-90% of the fat tissue transferred to the breasts will survive the procedure, leading to larger and natural looking breasts.
Fat Transfer Over Implants
There are a few reasons why some individuals will prefer fat transfer over implants. As mentioned already, fat transfer to breasts helps achieve a more natural appearance. This procedure can also avoid possible complications of breast implants such as leakage or ruptures. Breast implants can also interfere with breastfeeding if you plan on having a child following your procedure. Fat transfer to breasts makes it safe and easy to breastfeed and will also not interfere with any mammograms.
The Fat Transfer to Breasts Procedure
Unlike breast implants, patients of fat transfer to breasts do not require general anesthesia during the procedure. Only local anesthesia is needed to keep you comfortable and pain-free. The recovery period is also significantly shorter, with most patients only experiencing a 48-recovery window. The fat tissue is removed from areas of the body where you do not want it such as the abdomen and thighs. Your breasts will look incredible while also shaping your body into an ideal image.
