If you aren’t happy with the size of your breasts, you’re not alone. Many women feel uncomfortable with their breasts because they’re naturally small, they decreased in size, or their breasts aren’t balanced in appearance. Other things like pregnancy, weight loss, or aging can change the appearance of your breasts. Whatever your reasons, breast augmentation is one excellent way to boost your confidence in your body. Although traditionally, breast augmentation uses implants, fat transfer is also an excellent way to achieve your goals. Here’s what to know about it.

Understanding Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Fat transfer breast augmentation uses deposits of fat on other areas of your body. Typical areas used for this include your hips, your stomach, and your buttocks. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon will perform liposuction to remove the fat through a tiny incision. The fat then goes through a purification process before it’s injected into your breasts. The whole process can often be performed using a local anesthetic. If you’re looking to increase your breasts by half a cup to a cup size, a fat transfer procedure could benefit you.

Why Choose Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

A fat transfer procedure is less invasive than breast implant surgery. Additionally, it offers the ability to use natural tissues from your own body in order to enhance your bust. As an additional advantage, you can improve the contours in other areas where the fat is taken from. A fat transfer procedure is ideal if you would like more subtle results from your breast augmentation procedure than implants. The recovery process and healing time are also greatly reduced.

Am I a Good Candidate for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

When you consider a fat transfer breast augmentation, it’s most important that you have enough fat to achieve the results you’re hoping for. If you don’t have enough, your plastic surgeon may recommend breast implant surgery. If you are a good candidate for fat transfer, it can help you to:

  • Make your breasts look symmetrical
  • Enhance the size and shape of your breasts
  • Restore your bust size after aging, weight loss, or pregnancy

Fat transfer breast augmentation helps you to make the most of the excess fat in your body by shifting it to your bust. This means you’ll need to be willing to part with fat on areas like the stomach, butt, or thighs for your procedure.
