Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer: How Does It Work?

A fat transfer breast augmentation, often referred to as a fat transfer boob job, is done to increase or change the size of your breasts. The fat transfer, or fat grafting, procedure involves extracting fat from another part of your body and injecting it into your breasts to improve their contours. Fat is usually taken from parts of your body where there is excess, such as your tummy or thighs. This technique differs from the other type of breast augmentation surgery which uses implants that are inserted into the breasts. Fat transfer is a more natural method as it uses existing fat, rather than the creation of prosthetic material, to enhance the contours of your breasts.

What Does a Natural Breast Augmentation Involve?

When it comes to the procedure itself, every patient will have slightly different experiences. The surgery can vary depending on where the fat is extracted from, how much is used, and your individual goals from the treatment. However, there are a few common steps involved in all fat transfer boob jobs.

1. Initial Consultation

Before the treatment can be carried out, initial consultations need to take place between the patient and the doctor. Together, the area of the body that will be used for fat removal is chosen. This is commonly the abdominal area, buttocks, back, or thighs.

2. Anaesthesia and Fat Extraction

Once everything is ready, the patient is placed under either general or local anaesthesia, depending on the individual case. The doctor then makes a small incision in the previously selected area and a liposuction cannula is inserted to delicately draw out the amount of fat needed. The fat is then purified in a centrifuge and placed in small syringes that are used for making the actual transfer.

3. Fat Transfer

Following the fat extraction, the doctor then makes an incision on the breast and injects the extracted fat into the areas to be augmented. The injection is carried out several times, to achieve the desired enhancement and look.

4. Closure

As the final step, the doctor closes the incisions with either stitches, medical-grade skin adhesive, or surgical tape, depending on the incision sites. The breasts are then covered with bandages. If dissolvable stitches are used, they are broken down by the body within around 6-8 weeks. If the doctor used sutures that are not absorbable, they are typically taken out after seven days.

Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer: What To Expect

It’s important to go into a fat transfer breast augmentation with realistic expectations and to be fully aware of the risks and side effects. This is vital to both a successful surgery and recovery. During your consultation, make sure to ask your doctor about all aspects of the procedure, so you can be confident in your decision and prepared for recovery.

Please be aware that although you might notice a difference immediately following the surgery, it takes anywhere from 6-12 months for the final results to appear. There’s also the possibility that more than one session may be needed to achieve your desired look, and over time fat cells may disperse, which can change the look of your breasts. Additional factors such as breastfeeding and weight fluctuations will also influence the appearance of your breasts. Lastly, your doctor will ask you to wear a compression garment on the area where fat was extracted from and may prescribe painkillers for a few days following your fat transfer boob job.

Popular Locations and Doctors

When it comes to choosing where to go for your breast augmentation with fat transfer surgery, there are a number of locations, clinics, and doctors that offer high-quality care at a fair price. The Kardiolita Hospital in Lithuania for example, offers dedicated treatment packages that are specifically designed for international patients. The hospital is also home to renowned doctors such as Dr. Mindaugas Kazanavičius, MD, who has performed over 250 treatments and is an expert in breast augmentation treatments.

I can strongly recommend.

Very professional and well versed in his work. I was having a breast augmentation surgery and am happy with the work done. The doctor chose the size perfectly based on my overall appearance, chest anatomy, and desire to stay natural. After the operation, he paid enough attention and told me in detail how to continue to recover successfully. I can strongly recommend. Good luck!
