There are many women out there who are interested in breast enlargement but for various reasons prefer not to increase the size of their breasts using implants. Some women don’t like the idea of having implants in their bodies, are concerned it won’t look natural enough, or are really just looking for a small increase in size. Whatever the reason, it’s your body, and you have every right to feel however you do about it. At The Plastic Surgery Clinic we tailor all of our procedures to our patients’ individual needs and desires in order to ensure the best result for what they are looking to achieve. If you’re someone who has thought about getting a breast augmentation but was hoping to do it without implants, breast augmentation with fat transfer might be the procedure for you. Fat injection to breasts is not as permanent as breast implant surgeries. Usually, 30% of the injected fat could be melted down in the first few months.
Is Breast Enlargement Possible Without Incision?
It is possible to enlarge the breast without incision. Breast enlargement could be applied by using the patient’s own fat. The fat injection has been preferred by women who desire natural and round breasts. In this procedure, excess fat tissues are removed and placed between the breast tissue and the muscle. The adipose tissue placed in the area looks more permanent and natural than the adipose tissue placed in the muscle. Patients could have a consultation with surgeon for the best technique for themselves.
What is Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer?
Breast augmentation with fat transfer is a procedure in which fat is harvested from other parts of your body via vaser liposuction, and then re-injected into your breasts in order to moderately increase their size, improve their shape, or correct underlying asymmetry. Depending on the amount of fat injected, breast augmentation with fat transfer can increase a woman’s breast size approximately half to a full bra cup size.
Fat is usually harvested from the abdomen, hips, and/or thighs. Your surgeon will begin the procedure by using liposuction to remove fat from any unwanted areas, expertly sculpting and contouring them to your desired silhouette. Your surgical team will then proceed to purify and isolate the desired fat cells for re-injection. The fat cells, known as a fat graft, are then expertly injected into the breasts to ensure that they are correctly integrated into the existing breast tissue.
In experienced surgical hands, breast augmentation with fat transfer is a great procedure in that it allows for a beautiful natural result, while simultaneously treating more than one area of the body: the breasts as well as the areas from which fat is liposuctioned. In addition, the entire procedure uses your own fat to produce the desired result with no need for an implant, resulting in soft and supple, completely natural breasts.
Breast augmentation with fat transfer is also very useful in correcting minor asymmetries of the breasts and because the incisions for fat grafting are very small there is virtually no scarring. Breast augmentation with fat transfer is also an ideal procedure for women that are seeking to improve.
What Are The Advantages Of Breast Enlargement Procedure With Fat Injection?
In this technique, since implants are not used, general anesthesia is not needed. Therefore, very small incisions would be enough to inject the excess fat. Since it does not require general anesthesia, it has a low completion rate compared to breast implant surgeries. Moreover, with the help of liposuction, patients’ own excess fat is used which helps to reshape and give younger contour to the body. With any fat grafting procedure it takes approximately three months in order for your body to fully incorporate the fat in the new area of your body. This means that the final size and shape of your breasts may not be evident for this amount of time. Interestingly, we know that only about 50-60% of the fat that is injected into the breast will survive long term, with the remainder of the injected fat being broken down and re-absorbed by your body.
Another advantage of breast enlargement with fat injection is to solve individuals’ asymmetric breasts look.
Who are the Best Candidates for Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer
The best candidates for breast augmentation with fat transfer are women who are looking for a moderate increase in breast size without the need for implants. Typically, you should have some unwanted pockets of fat in the areas of the abdomen, hips and/or thighs from which fat can be removed and harvested in order to inject into your breasts.
Because breast augmentation with fat transfer offers a subtle transformation and improvement of the breasts, the best candidates for this procedure already have a good shape to their breasts, good skin elasticity, as well as minimal asymmetries. Women whose breasts are very heavy or sagging, have excess skin, more visible asymmetries, or are looking for a large increase in size, will be better candidates for other breast surgeries such as breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction. In some cases, fat injection can actually be combined with a conservatively sized breast implant to achieve the best overall breast size and shape possible.
Is Breast Enlargement With An Injection Permanent?
Breast enlargement with fat injection has semi-permanence. Half of the added fats usually begin to meltdown depending on the patient’s physical activity within two months after the procedure. While 50-60% of the injected fats dissolve within the first months, the remaining fat could stay in the breasts for life.
Fat transfer to the breast process!
The breast augmentation with fat transfer procedure takes approximately 2-3 hours, but can vary depending on the complexity of your case. Following a physical examination and consultation with one of our surgeons, they will be able to lay out the details of your procedure and give you the approximate amount of time your procedure will require.
Recovery Process Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer
Another advantage of breast augmentation with fat transfer is that it is much less invasive than a standard breast augmentation surgery allowing for a speedier recovery and general healing process.
Recovery following breast augmentation with fat transfer typically takes 2-4 days, but we still recommend that patients take at least one week off work and/or from their regular routines in order to allow their body to heal. We encourage gentle exercise such as walking soon after surgery, but strenuous exercise such as running or weight lifting should be avoided for one month following surgery.
Although initial recovery is relatively speedy, your breasts will continue to be swollen for several weeks following your surgery. We always advise patients to be patient with themselves and their bodies. Although you will see immediate results following your breast augmentation with fat transfer procedure, it will take time before the grafted fat is fully integrated into your breasts and becomes a natural part of this new area of the body. In the weeks and months following your procedure you will see your swelling go down and your breasts will gradually become softer.
