A fat transfer allows a patient to remove unwanted fat from their “problem areas” such as the abdomen, back, arms, and thighs. We then harvest and reinject the fat to the breasts.
• General desire for a fuller chest
• Restoration to pre-pregnancy breast size, shape, and appearance
• Correct any size discrepancies or deformities
• Restoration after surgical lumpectomies
• After implant removal
In general, healthy women with a normal mammogram and enough body fat for re-injection (this will be determined in your consultation) are good candidates. Fat transfer may also be performed for breast reconstruction candidates.
Your incisions will be around 2-3mm, leaving your scar burden almost unnoticeable.
The patient must come in for a consultation before booking their surgery to discuss if they are a good candidate and where they would like to remove the fat from. Common areas include the abdomen, back, arms, and thighs.
We will remove fat from your “problem area” by performing Liposuction. The fat is then harvested carefully and prepared for re-injection in our state-of-the-art facility. We meticulously transfer your processed fat into your breasts to enhance your shape and contour your figure. Most patients will go up 1-2 cup sizes.
Your initial recovery time is 1-3 days. You can expect to return to light activities such as your desk job after 1-2 weeks. Strenuous exercise can be continued after 1 month.
Depending on your shape and size, you can expect to go up 1-2 cup sizes after receiving a Fat Transfer.
