Introduction

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.

Recovery & Maintenance

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.
