Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

What to Expect After a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

February 10, 2023

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

One of the most common breast procedures is breast augmentation with implants. While breast implants provide dramatic results, some patients enjoy more subtle enhancement through breast augmentation with fat transfer. Dr. Coville suggests this procedure for those who want natural-appearing results and want to reap the benefits of both slimming the body and enhancing the breasts. 

What is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Fat transfer breast augmentation is a breast enhancement procedure that uses liposuction to transfer fat cells from the buttocks, abdomen, or thighs to the breasts. The treatment enhances the breasts and adds volume without using an implant. 

After liposuction, Dr. Coville purifies the extracted fat to filter out other fluids and cells unfit for transfer. He injects the fat into the target area for augmentation. Dr. Coville’s experience and expertise in his field allow him to customize treatments to adapt to your body type and preferred cosmetic goals. 

How Long is Recovery from Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Most patients recover from fat-transfer breast augmentation in about a week. The new breasts heal within three days, but the liposuction site may take longer to recover. For those who have more fat removed, your recovery may take longer. 

Bruising may last up to three weeks, and Dr. Coville does not recommend exercising until after the bruising fades. Most patients choose to take a week or two off from work. Complete healing, however, takes up to six weeks. 

What Results Can I Expect from Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

One of the main benefits of fat transfers for breast augmentation is the natural results. The symmetry and enhanced breast shape seamlessly fit your natural appearance, boosting your confidence. 

Results last a lifetime, with final results settling in around six months after your procedure. We do not recommend using fat transfer if you want more dramatic breast enhancement. Most patients go up one or two cup sizes with fat transfer. For a more drastic increase, implants may better fit your breast augmentation procedure.

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer?

If you struggle with deflation in the breast area or asymmetrical breasts, you may be a good candidate for a fat transfer breast augmentation. Candidates must be in good overall health with realistic expectations.

Ideal candidates have small breasts with larger hips, but all body types can receive breast augmentation. If you do not have enough body fat for liposuction, struggle with obesity, or experience consistent weight fluctuations, you may not be a good candidate for breast augmentation with fat transfer.
