Until recently, breast augmentation and volume enhancements were only possible through breast implants. But some women are hesitant about getting silicone or saline implants because they aren’t natural parts of the body. Breast fat grafting has recently arisen as a popular alternative to implant-based breast augmentations — it allows the surgeon to enhance the breast volume using fat cells harvested from another part of your body. If you want to enhance your breast volume using natural fat cells, please contact Dr. Lisiecki about fat transfer breast augmentation in NYC to explore your options.
About Breast Fat Grafting
What is breast fat grafting?
Breast fat grafting is an autologous surgical procedure that involves transferring excess fat cells from one part of the body to the breasts to make them look fuller and more voluminous. The surgeon performs liposuction to extract excess fat cells from the donor site, such as the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. The harvested fat cells are carefully purified and injected into the breast tissues to restore natural volume and projection. The results are completely natural because the fat cells are natural parts of your body.
The benefits of breast fat grafting:
- Extremely small incisions made on the donor site
- 100% natural fat cells drawn from the patient’s body
- Low risk of allergic reactions or infections
- No risk of complications because of implant rupturing or rippling
- Removes excess fat cells from another part of the body, such as the tummy
- Less post-treatment recovery period than a breast implant surgery
- Enhances the shape and proportions of the breast
Candidates for a breast fat grafting:
- Want to enhance the volume and size of your breasts
- Don’t want to use silicone or saline implants to enhance the breast size
- Have excess fat cells on the donor site for the liposuction
- Have generally good physical and mental health
- Are a nonsmoker or willing to stop smoking before the breast fat grafting
- Have realistic expectations from the breast augmentation surgery
Recovery after the breast fat grafting surgery
Breast fat grafting involves less post-treatment downtime than traditional breast augmentation with implants. You will need to wear a soft bra for a few weeks after your procedure, and you may experience some swelling and tenderness for a few days to weeks. However, you can resume most of your daily activities 3 days after the procedure.
