In this procedure, fat is harvested from another area of your body with excess fat, then purified and injected in the breasts to add soft, natural volume. This procedure must be performed with the most advanced techniques to allow the largest number of fat cells to flourish in their new location. Dr. Egrari is known for his precision, impressive surgical skills, his state-of-the-art clinic, and for performing successful breast augmentation procedures with natural fat injections.

Who Is A Candidate For Breast Augmentation With Fat?

Many women are interested in a more natural way to add plump and natural volume to their breasts. This procedure can be the perfect way to achieve this. Candidates for the procedure include:

  • Individuals seeking breast enhancement who desire a natural augmentation
  • Patients who are apprehensive about implants and prosthesis
  • Patients who desire a subtler augmentation
  • Patients who do not have significant ptosis (droopiness)
  • Patients who have extra fat on the body that can be used for transfer

    Intended Results

    This method of fat transfer breast augmentation can achieve the perfect enhancement for women who want a natural way to enhance breast size and are not seeking a more dramatic increase in breast size, which can only be achieved with implants. The procedure involves the following basic factors:

    • Breast enlargement using your body’s own fat cells
    • Very subtle enlargement
    • A natural, soft feel to the breasts after enlargement
    • Lifelong results
    • Breast augmentation that is free from unsightly scars

    The Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Procedure 

    Enhancing breast size with fat injections is only possible for women who have excess fat in another part of the body that can be harvested, purified, and then injected into the breasts. The procedure involves the following steps:

    • Fat is obtained by liposuction from various parts of the body. Fat transfer has the distinct advantage of fat removal and body contouring at the same time.
    • The fat is purified using the latest techniques of harvest and transfer.
    • The fat is injected into the breasts in various levels and layers using very small 1-2 mm incisions. This is effectively a scarless procedure.
    • The operation is performed with the patient under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

    Recuperation And Healing After Breast Augmentation With Fat

    After the procedure, you will need some time for healing, although recovery time is typically very short. When the procedure is completed, you will return home to rest and heal. You may have some discomfort, and a prescription for pain medication that may be needed in the early stages of recovery. You can expect the following:

    • A bra and some tape will be on your skin. The areas of liposuction will be covered in special garments to help with smoother healing.
    • You can shower the next day.
    • This is a relatively non-invasive operation, but it does require some recuperation at home for two to four days. Most patients return to work and other activities after this short recovery time.
    • Exercise can be started after four weeks.

    Other Procedures With Breast Augmentation Fat Transfer

    For many patients, a combination of procedures will deliver the final look they envision for breasts and body.

    If there is significant ptosis (droopiness), Dr. Egrari will recommend a breast lift first followed by breast augmentation with fat injection after three to six months. There is a unique group of patients that do not have a lot of ptosis. In this population, fat injection and a breast lift can be done at the same time. Dr. Egrari will determine if you fall under this category during your consultation. If the volume is not sufficient to produce the desired look, implants can be placed in the future.

    Other forms of body contouring such as a tummy tuck can be performed in the same surgical appointment for a total body makeover.

    Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation: An Alternative To Implants

    While breast implants have been established as being safe, every person responds differently to them. In addition, breast implants must be replaced at some point.

    Many women want an increase in breast size, but are concerned about implants or undergoing invasive surgery. Fat transfer is a safe, minimally-invasive alternative that uses only your own body’s material — a perfect match. The added benefit of a fat transfer breast augmentation in Seattle is that the area from which the fat is harvested (typically the tummy, thighs, or buttocks) is trimmed and slimmed in the same procedure.

    If you’re looking for a lot of breast volume, fat injection is not the right procedure for you. The skill with which the fat transfer procedure is performed is exceptionally important, as the goal is to harvest living fat cells so they can be transferred and live in their new location. The number of fat cells that remain viable will vary from patient to patient, but is typically between 50% and 80%. The enhancement is typically about one cup size per procedure. Some women choose to have the procedure repeated later to add even more volume. If you’re interested in fat transfer, the first step is a consultation with Dr. Egrari to find out if breast augmentation with fat injections is right for you.
