Fat transfer breast augmentation surgery is considered a more natural technique in the world of breast enhancement. Essentially, the procedure involves taking fat from one part of the body and injecting it into the breasts. If you’re considering fat transfer to the breasts, read on to learn if you could be a suitable candidate for the procedure.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation: How it Works
Fat transfer to breast in combination with liposuction has been around for over 20 years. Over time, techniques for fat transfer have continued to advance and evolve. Breast fat transfer is ideal for women who want a small to a modest increase in breast size. Going up one bra cup size is a realistic outcome. So, if you’re looking for a more sizable increase in breast size, breast implants may be a more suitable option.
You can break the fat transfer breast augmentation procedure into two phases: liposuction and fat injection. Typically, fat is removed from the abdomen, buttocks or thighs, and then a special machine prepares the fat. The fat is then injected into the breasts via tiny holes in the skin. The surgery itself is very complex, so it’s important that your plastic surgeon is experienced and has expert knowledge of human anatomy.
What Makes You a Good Candidate for Successful Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Like any cosmetic procedure, to be a good candidate for fat transfer breast augmentation, you need to be physically healthy and not pregnant or breastfeeding. Because you have to use your own fat for this procedure, you need to have enough fat. If you’re very slim, the procedure may not be suitable for you.
You could be an ideal candidate for fat transfer to the breasts if:
- Want to increase breast size by up to 1 cup
- Have a healthy weight with some stubborn fat deposits
- Don’t plan to have any more children
- Want to increase the size of your breasts but not the shape
- Want long-lasting results without the need for further operations in the future
- Have thin skin
- Have breast asymmetry
You may not be a suitable candidate if:
- You want a large increase in breast size
- Have a very slim frame with no extra fat
- Have a large amount of excess breast skin
- Planning to have children in the future
- Have sagging breasts (the best way to combat sagging breasts is with a breast lift)
