About Breast Fat Grafting: Natural Breast Augmentation without Implants

  • The ideal breast fat grafting candidate is a woman who wants a subtle increase in size and absolutely does not want a breast implant.
  • You must have adequate fat in other areas of the body to be harvested and transferred to the breast.
  • You must be able to maintain adequate body fat percentage.
  • You must have relatively tight or elastic skin tone of the breast.
  • You are interested in a relatively small increase in size (roughly half a cup size) or in gaining fullness only in selected areas of the breast.

Benefits of Breast Fat Grafting

  • Unlike silicone or saline implants, the fat is a completely natural substance coming from your own body. Nothing foreign or artificial is added.
  • Harvesting of the fat using liposuction can help re-contour or enhance your shape.
  • The breast can be sculpted and shaped in more unique ways to only enhance the areas desired rather than the entire breast.
  • The minimal incisions reduce the chance of scarring and quicken recovery time.
  • Avoid risks associated with implants (rupture, leaks, shifting) and avoid having to perform MRIs to check for any leaks in a silicone implant.
  • Breast fat grafting can provide a subtle augmentation rather than going up several sizes.
  • This procedure can sometimes be done under a local anesthesia in the office, giving patients the opportunity to avoid the affects of general anesthesia. This will be determined by your doctor.

    Recovery time after breast fat grafting can vary depending on how many areas are used for fat donor sites. Like typical liposuction, these areas may be swollen, bruised, and uncomfortable for several days. Your breasts will experience some swelling and bruising, but little pain. Most patients return to work in a few days (for small cases) or in about two weeks (if more extensive liposuction is performed). You may begin your regular exercise routine in 10 to 14 days or as soon as your body has healed from the liposuction. Bruising and swelling can last up to three weeks, but all swelling should be gone in four to six months.
