Breast Augmentation Using Fat Transfer

Fat transfer is an excellent option for women who are looking for a slight increase in breast size and want to ensure the most natural-looking results. It is also a great option for women who want to correct sagging breasts that have occurred due to age or nursing. This method of breast augmentation is particularly popular among those who want to achieve two goals in one procedure – the removal of unwanted fat from one area of the body and the enhancement of their breasts.

Dr. Ringpfeil said,
"Over the past 10 years, our doctors have developed a proprietary process to purify the harvested fat. Our patients not only benefit from a more natural look but also from long-lasting results."

How Non-Surgical Breast Augmentation Works

Breast augmentation using fat transfer involves the removal of fat via liposuction and its injection into the breasts.

Fat is commonly removed from the buttocks, hips, abdomen, or flanks. After tumescent anesthesia, a cannula (a thin, hollow tube) is inserted through a tiny incision allowing the fat to be gently removed from the body.

The extracted fat is then purified before it is injected into the breasts. The results are determined by the quality and amount of the fat injected and by the artistic placement.

Recovery After Fat Transfer To The Breasts

The recovery following fat transfer breast augmentation is faster than augmentation using implants. Most of our patients are back to their normal activities within 4 days. During the recovery, we ask patients to carefully follow our post-surgical advice which may include:

  • Wear compression garments on the area where fat was removed via liposuction
  • Avoid sleeping on the stomach to prevent damage to the fat grafts
  • Take all prescribed medications and care for the incision sites as directed
  • Avoid vigorous exercise for at least six weeks

Patients should expect a certain amount of swelling and bruising around both the liposuction area and breasts. This will dissipate naturally over the coming weeks.

Results Of Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer

The results of breast augmentation using fat transfer are immediately visible, but cannot be fully appreciated until swelling has subsided. It can take up to a year for the body to accept and incorporate the fat injections. Once this occurs, the results are completely natural looking and feeling. The body will absorb a certain amount of the injected fat during the first year, so it’s natural for a small loss of volume to occur. It’s also important to remember that the size and shape of the breasts can be affected by weight gain or loss.

Candidates For Breast Augmentation Using Fat Transfer

Candidates for breast augmentation using this method seek a modest increase in their breast size and have a sufficient amount of unwanted fat elsewhere in their body. Fat transfer cannot be used to achieve a major increase in breast size – implants may be more appropriate in this case. Ideal candidates will also be generally healthy and have realistic expectations about the results that can be achieved.

There was some wait between my initial interview with the medical assistantand my meeting the physician. This wait could have been shorter.

#22023-08-17

My next appointment could not be scheduled for 6 weeks. I wish I could be seen sooner!

#32010-12-16 10:06:03

I would like to get in with the doctor. I also would like more than one option presented to me. Also, it would be nice to be offered more natural alternatives, or integrative treatments.

#42011-08-10 15:47:37

more relaxing music

#52024-01-25

I cannot think of a thing that would make the visit any better.

#62010-11-03 15:36:43

I had an appointment for a consulation for sun damage. Unfortunately, I need to see either a doctor or PA for my issue and this was not included in my appointment, so I need to make another trip. It is difficult for me to carve time out of my work day to take care of personal needs, so this is creating an inconvenience for me. I would have preferred to had the complete consultation done in one appointment.
