What is a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Small breasts can occur due to genetics, aging, pregnancy, or weight loss. For those patients seeking a natural alternative to augmentation with implants, a fat transfer procedure can yield personalized results and improved breast symmetry. The procedure is often performed as part of a breast reconstruction treatment plan for those who have undergone mastectomy or lumpectomy.

During your fat transfer breast augmentation in Denver, your surgeon will use liposuction to remove fat from areas of excess, such as the abdomen, flanks, back, or thighs. Once the fat has been sterilized and purified, it will be injected into the chest strategically to create a natural-looking enhancement in the breast mounds. Clients enjoy the dual body sculpting benefits that come with the procedure.

What Are the Benefits?

  • A subtle volume increase of up to one cup size
  • Natural-looking contour changes
  • Enhanced self-confidence
  • A wider range of wardrobe options

Am I too thin to undergo the procedure?

Patients will need to have a BMI (body mass index) of at least 20. Fat can be taken from a variety of areas, so most clients will qualify. The best way to determine your candidacy is to undergo a private consultation with our knowledgeable team.

Can I undergo a breast lift in combination with a fat transfer augmentation?

Yes. Many patients combine mastopexy with fat transfer to achieve comprehensive body sculpting results in the chest. Breast lift surgery is performed first to remove excess skin and raise the breast contours. Then fat transfer is used to enhance the breast mounds with a natural-looking outcome.

Can a fat transfer procedure address sagging skin?

No. The treatment can only address a deficit in breast volume. Excess skin will need to be removed surgically.

How is the Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Performed?

Our fat transfer breast augmentation in Denver is performed under general anesthesia and takes 1-3 hours to perform. Liposuction of the donor regions is completed as a first step. The harvested fat is collected in sterile containers and is purified prior to transfer.

A small syringe filled with the fat substance is injected into the breasts via tiny incisions of less than 1 cm. Finally, the incisions are sealed with fine sutures, and the patient is placed in the recovery suite for observation.

What Will Recovery Entail?

Patients wake up from surgery without compression garments in order to avoid constricting the transferred fat. The donor regions will be dressed in compression bandages, however. After careful monitoring, the client will return home the same day.

During the first six weeks, clients should avoid wearing tight bras and form-fitting tops. Avoid sleeping on the stomach for six weeks as well. Patients can expect to return to work within the first week. Final procedure results are typically visible within 3-6 months.
