What Should I Expect From a Breast Fat Transfer?
In recent years, advances in medical knowledge and equipment have meant that breast fat transfer procedures are safer than ever. Our surgeons and nurses stay up to date on the latest medical advice. When women choose Wellness Kliniek for breast augmentation using own fat procedures, they benefit from the latest technology and the best medical knowledge in the industry.
The first step in the process is a consultation. Our surgeons will identify areas on the patient’s body that have excess fatty deposits. More often than not, surgeons take fat cells from the hips, buttocks, and abdomen. Patients can use the consultation as an opportunity to discuss their desired cup size as well as any concerns they have.
In the first stages of their breast fat transfer procedure, patients will be given general or local anaesthesia. The type of anaesthesia is specific to each patient. Your surgeon will identify which type best suits your physiology and the parameters of the procedure.
Your surgeon will create small incisions in the area with fatty deposits. The incisions are around 2mms and 3mms wide, which will typically heal after 12 months if you follow our aftercare guidelines. They are large enough for your surgeon to insert a liposuction tube and remove fat cells.
One liposuction session can last for around 2 hours. Some patients will have more than one session. The number of sessions depends on the patient’s desired outcome. In most cases, surgeons at Wellness Kliniek can enhance breasts by one cup size with fat transfer breast augmentations.
Our nurses separate the fat cells from other fluids such as blood with specialist medical equipment. Your surgeon will only inject healthy fat cells into your breasts. They use fine needles to inject cells into different areas. Our surgeons understand how important it is to create a symmetrical result.
This part of the process takes around 2 hours. Patients can expect the entire breast augmentation fat transfer procedure to take anywhere from 2 to 6 hours depending on the number of sessions they need. Once the procedure is finished, your surgeon will close the incisions with dissolvable sutures and cover them with protective bandages.
Our surgeons have operated on hundreds of patients who are pleased with their results. Visit our fat transfer breast augmentation before and after photos page to see how your breasts could look after surgery.
