Breast Fat Transfer


Breast augmentation with your own fat is a surgery aimed at increasing the size of the breasts without the use of breast implants.  The grafted fat can provide more volume throughout the breast, improving the overall form and contour.


It is ideal for people who wish to augment their breasts without the use of implants and have enough fat to donate and make an appreciable difference.  Since the fat is obtained with liposuction, the patient must also be a candidate for liposuction that will not leave an unpleasant appearance in the areas that donate the fat.  


Fat transfer involves obtaining or harvesting fat cells from one part of the body by liposuction, then the fat is processed, cleansed, and injected into the breast tissue. Fat transfer can be used in primary breast augmentation, or also in people with an existing implant. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia and lasts approximately two to three hours.  It is important to note that not all of the fat survives the transfer, so the final result of the volume change will not be evident for several months.  


Patients can expect some discomfort and swelling, normal activity will be restored in two to four days. However, we recommend that you limit your physical activity at first, avoiding heavy exercise or sudden movements for at least three weeks.


The results of the fat transfer will be seen after several months when the swelling is reduced and the fat that survives the transfer has settled.  At this point, the breasts will maintain their natural and enhanced shape.  It is sometimes necessary to repeat the procedure if more volume is desired after full healing has occured. 


The cost of fat transfer to the breasts can vary depending on the individual needs of the patient, but is generally $6,500 – $7,500.
