Benefits of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Understanding Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Fat transfer breast augmentation combines precision and artistry to achieve a natural and personalised enhancement. The procedure involves two key steps: liposuction and fat injection. Our surgeon uses liposuction techniques to delicately harvest excess fat from donor areas like the abdomen or thighs. This harvested fat is then purified and strategically injected into the breasts, resulting in a dual benefit of enhanced breast size and body contouring.
Achieving the desired results in fat transfer breast augmentation may necessitate multiple sessions, as the body may reabsorb a small percentage of the transferred fat.
Types of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
The decision in choosing a suitable type of fat transfer depends on your individual preferences and goals.
The following table lists the notable differences between the three main types of fat transfer to guide your decision.
Type of Transfer
Standard Fat Transfer
The harvested fat is purified and injected into the breasts
Natural appearance and feel, potential body contouring benefits
Refined fat particles are injected for precision and subtlety
Ideal for small volume enhancements, fine-tuning breast shape
Highly refined fat is injected for rejuvenation and skin quality
Focus on skin texture and quality, suitable for subtle enhancements
Understanding Longevity and Care
The typical lifespan of fat transfer breast augmentation results can vary but is generally long-lasting. Factors influencing longevity include the quality of the fat, routine monitoring, changes over time, potential rupture, personal decisions, and adherence to manufacturer recommendations.
Patients may experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the immediate postoperative days. These are common and can be managed with prescribed pain medications and cold compresses. Rest and limited physical activity are advised to ensure a smooth recovery.
Initial improvements become noticeable within the first few weeks, though the final results take time. Patients are encouraged to follow the postoperative care guidelines provided by our plastic surgeon.
