Fat Transfer

What is fat transfer breast augmentation?

Fat transfer breast augmentation essentially uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body and inject it into your breasts. This is a breast augmentation option for women who are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size and would prefer natural results.

Fat transfer breast augmentation risks and safety

Fat transfer breast augmentation risks include:

  • Cysts
  • Infection
  • Microcalcification
  • Necrosis (death) of fat cells
  • Possibility that some of the transferred fat cells will leave the breast area

Your plastic surgeon may also have you use a tissue expansion system during the weeks before your breast augmentation surgery to improve your results. You may have to have touch-up injections to retain your improved shape if you choose this surgery.
