Breast Fat Injection
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.
It can be tempting to think about fat grafting as a “safer” procedure, since it doesn’t involve major surgery. However, we’re not yet sure how successful it will be over the long-term. Because fat grafting is so new, no large clinical studies have been done on the procedure. The studies that have been done involve fewer than 100 women and the average follow-up time is less than 4 years.
It’s also important to know that in many cases, the fat injected into the breast area may be reabsorbed by the body over time and the breast may lose some volume. This is why some plastic surgeons initially may add more fat than you think you need.
The benefits of Breast fat Transfer
- It uses your own tissue instead of an implant.
- Fat is removed from an area where you don’t want it.
- Many women report that their fat-graft-reconstructed breast has some sensation and feels soft, much like the other unreconstructed breast.
