Breast Fat Grafting

This procedure, also known as natural breast augmentation, uses liposuction techniques on an adequate donor site such as the abdomen or buttocks for a subtle enhancement in the size and shape of the breasts. In most cases, VASER Liposuction is suggested as this is the safest and an effective way to remove fat cells. The fat cells may also be enriched with PRP for optimal results.

Breast Fat Grafting Candidates

A breast fat graft is an option for those who wish to have a subtle enhancement to their breasts without the use of implants or other foreign substance. The technique can also be used as part of a breast reconstruction procedure after a mastectomy. Candidates must have enough fat in the donor in order to undergo a breast fat graft. Patients should also be in good health and have breasts that are fully developed before undergoing a breast fat transfer procedure.


Preparing for Your Procedure

Before undergoing a procedure with breast fat grafting, patients will need to meet with their plastic surgeon for an evaluation and to go through the procedure process. This is also the time to ask any questions about the surgeon, the procedure process, and what to expect. Patients might ask some of the following questions:

  • What is your experience with breast fat grafting?
  • Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
  • Can a breast fat graft give me the results I want?
  • What techniques will be used?
  • What can I expect during the recovery process?

Procedure Steps

A breast fat graft is less invasive than a traditional augmentation, requiring only small incisions where the fat will be placed. The procedure will begin by harvesting fat from the donor site, typically the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks using liposuction techniques. The fat is then purified and prepared for placement. Small incisions are made on the sides of the breasts or wherever contour is needed. The fat is then injected and incisions are closed.


Breast Fat Grafting Results

After breast fat grafting, patients might experience swelling, redness, and discomfort at the donor site as well as the breasts. The initial swelling can distort the true results of the procedure, but as side effects subside, patients can enjoy subtly enhanced breasts that are still natural-looking.

Because no implants are needed, patients do not need to worry about ruptures or other related complications. The results are long-lasting with enhanced breasts naturally aging with the rest of the body.
