Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Many women want larger or more symmetrical breasts but are concerned about the risks and results of implants that may look and feel artificial. Fat transfer breast augmentation is a safe alternative with natural results.

What is a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

A fat transfer breast augmentation takes undesirable fat from other parts of the body and injects it into the breasts for increased size and improved symmetry. This procedure offers natural breast enhancement as well as fat reduction in unwanted areas.

Unlike breast implants, fat transfer breast augmentation uses your own fat cells, which your body is less likely to reject than an artificial material. This dramatically decreases risks such as implant rupture or capsular contracture. 

During a fat transfer breast augmentation, Dr. Coville will use liposuction to harvest fat tissue from other parts of the body, often the thighs, buttocks, or belly. The tissue is purified and then injected into the breasts.

Results of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Dr. Coville has over 25 years of experience using plastic surgery to help his patients achieve their desired appearance. He can skillfully perform a fat transfer breast augmentation to improve your breasts’ shape, fullness, and symmetry.

Fat transfer breast augmentations are best for women seeking a subtle increase in breast size or to restore breast shape after weight changes, breastfeeding, or damage caused by medical conditions. You can expect a one or two cup size increase.

Not all of the transferred fat will survive, and studies on the long-term results of fat transfer breast augmentation are limited. However, fat tissue that is successfully incorporated into the breasts after three months should be permanent.

What to Expect With a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

The procedure involves three steps and takes two to six hours. You will be placed under either general or local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Dr. Coville will then make small incisions to harvest fat tissue using liposuction in the chosen areas. Once the fat is purified, he will inject it strategically into the breasts for a natural, symmetrical shape. 

After the procedure, you can go home the same day and return to normal activities within a week, though you should avoid strenuous exercise for a few weeks. You will be able to see increased size immediately after a fat transfer breast augmentation, but the final results will appear gradually over a year as swelling dissipates and a small amount of the transferred fat is removed by the body.
