What is breast fat grafting?

If you're looking for a less drastic way to increase the size of your breasts, consider fat transfer breast augmentation as an option. It's an excellent option for those who want to get more breast volume while still losing weight in other areas of their bodies. Using liposuction, your body fat is shifted from one location to another instead of implants being put into the breast. Natural-looking outcomes are the goal of this procedure for ladies who want a modest increase in their breast size.

What are the benefits of fat transfer breast augmentation?

In Surrey fat transfer breast augmentation is a viable alternative for women seeking modest increases in breast size or improvement in breast shape without needing implants. It uses your own tissues instead of synthetic implants, therefore eliminating implant complications such as capsular contracture, rupture, or malposition. Breast fat grafting also eliminates fat from other areas like the stomach, love handles, or thighs. Unlike breasts with standard implants, these breasts have a supple, rounded shape.

Am I a good candidate for fat transfer breast augmentation?

Women who have lost their breast volume after breastfeeding may be good candidates for fat transfer breast augmentation. Similarly, women who have had their breast implants removed may be suitable candidates because their breasts have already been stretched by the prior implant and can more easily accept the fat without issues. Women who want an improvement in their breasts' shape can benefit from fat transfer to breast.

Delicate and Thorough Care

Your Breast Fat Grafting Procedure

The procedure begins with the collection of fat from the desired area of the body. This eliminates stubborn fat cells in these places that have not reacted to exercise and nutrition, leaving behind a smoother, slimmer body profile.

Next, the collected fat cells are carefully separated and rinsed before injecting them into the breasts. Using techniques designed to preserve and protect the fat cells, there is a better chance that a high proportion of the fat will remain in the breasts long term. Finally, the small discrete surgical incision is closed with dissolving sutures.

Finally, a compression garment will be placed on the areas of the body where the fat has been taken to reduce the swelling and improve the overall body contour.

Quick Recovery

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Recovery

Liposuction usually requires a few days of recuperation. However, the process of transferring fat to the breasts is relatively pain-free. You may notice minor swelling and bruising around the incision sites, but this should not cause considerable discomfort. You can take oral medicine for the first three to four days to ease your pain. The injections may cause mild pain in the breasts, but this should be temporary. Most activities can resume within the first few weeks after breast fat grafting surgery. However, vigorous activity should be avoided for at least six weeks to reduce swelling at the liposuction sites. During this period, avoid sleeping on your stomach to prevent undue pressure on your breasts, which might affect the fat's capacity to take.

Lasting, natural results

Breast Fat Grafting Results

It is possible to achieve excellent and long-term results with breast augmentation using body fat if the procedure is carried out appropriately. This is because of the fat's biological composition. Newly fat grafted cells must develop their own blood supply to live in the injection site (the breasts). Indeed, this isn't always the case. As a result, 30% to 50% of the fat injected may be absorbed by the body. As a result, Dr. Genoway will have prepared for this by slightly exceeding its fat-injection capacity and or executing her Surrey fat transfer breast augmentation treatment in many phases.

What are the risks of fat transfer breast augmentation?

Among the most prevalent adverse effects of fat transfer to breasts is the development of cysts or thick lumps in the breasts following fat grafting. Fat necrosis, or the death of fat cells, is another possible adverse effect. To account for the risk that part of the transplanted fat won't survive, your surgeon may perform the grafting in phases or slightly exceed the intended graft volume, accounting for this expected process.
