What Is Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer?
Breast fat transfer procedures are the number one choice for women who want a natural look. This type of breast enhancement procedure does not involve the use of foreign materials like silicone or saline with breast augmentation. Instead, surgeons take existing fat cells from the patients’ body.
This part of the procedure is called fat grafting. Fat cells are typically taken from the buttocks, thighs, and stomach. Fat transfer breast augmentation procedures have stricter candidate guidelines than other breast enhancement surgeries. Fat transfer patients need to have enough excess fat to achieve their desired outcome.
Once our team have removed the fat cells, they use specialist equipment to separate blood from other bodily fluids. This ensures that we only inject healthy fat cells into breasts.
Our surgeons create small incisions and inject the fat cells into both breasts. This part of the procedure is called lipofilling. Our surgeons understand how important it is to create a symmetrical result. They can even correct natural asymmetries during the procedure by injecting more cells into one breast.

Does Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Work?
Breast augmentation using own fat procedures have become increasingly popular in recent years. More and more women want to achieve an enhanced look without using foreign materials like silicone and saline.
There is a period of anywhere from several weeks to months after surgery where the fat cells have not established a connection to the blood supply. Some of the cells will even be absorbed into the body. Around 70 to 80% of the cells will connect to new blood vessels and survive. After this period, the remaining fat cells will last forever.
It is important to note that weight fluctuations can affect the volume of your post-operative breasts. If you lose weight after surgery the size of your breasts will decrease. Similarly, if you gain weight your breasts will become bigger. We only recommend breast fat transfer surgery for women who have already had children. Pregnancy can cause natural weight fluctuations that will change the appearance of post-operative breasts.
