Fat transfer breast augmentation, also known as natural breast augmentation or breast lipoinjection, offers an exciting natural alternative to breast implants for women who are looking to enhance their breasts.
At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York, our experienced fat grafting New York specialists perform fat transfer surgery at our Manhattan and Long Island locations for women seeking a modest to moderate increase in breast size.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Surgery
At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York, our fat transfer surgery specialists perform natural breast augmentation at our state-of-the-art fat grafting New York and Long Island surgical centers. Twilight or IV sedation is commonly used rather than general anesthesia, allowing for a safer and more affordable procedure.
Fat is first gently harvested from a donor site where there is excess, such as the abdomen, hips, legs or buttocks. The fat is then purified, making sure to retain the natural adult stem cells, and then injected into the breast tissue.
Some bruising, swelling and soreness may occur around the liposuction or donor site, while the breasts may experience some bruising and swelling.
However, there is very little discomfort in the breasts. Both the donor and recipient sites are fitted with a compression dressing and patients usually wear a soft bra for about two weeks. Normal activities (aside from strenuous workouts) can typically be resumed within one week.
Benefits of Fat Transfer Over Breast Implants
Natural fat transfer breast augmentation has many benefits over traditional breast implants. With fat transfer, women are able to increases their breast size by up to one cup size per procedure; additional procedures can be done to further increase cup size.
By using the patient’s own fat, there are fewer risks and side effects compared to breast implants. For some patients, breast implants can produce unnatural-looking results as well as complications such as displacement, rippling, capsular contracture and more.
Fat transfer breast augmentation surgery is a less invasive procedure performed with local anesthesia and it involves minimal scarring. Furthermore, fat transfer provides a more natural look and feel as compared to implants because it allows for some reduction in the patient’s harvest site via liposuction.
