Fat Transfer to Breasts

Fat transfer to breasts is a two-step surgical procedure that removes excess fat from one area of the body and transfers it to the breasts to increase the breast size and shape naturally. We use the revolutionary S.A.F.E. liposuction technique to preserve the maximum amount of fat cells to achieve optimal results.

Pre and Post Operative Instructions

Breast augmentation with fat grafting is an excellent option for many women who want to slightly enhance the shape and size of their breasts without implants. Often used for cosmetic purposes, particularly to achieve upper pole fullness, this technique is also performed for medical purposes during breast reconstruction or correction.

A fat transfer to breasts typically increases the breast size by approximately one-half cup size. Patients seeking a more considerable size increase may need to undergo multiple fat grafting procedures or combine with implants to achieve their desired result. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will provide a comprehensive exam and discuss your goals to understand if this procedure is correct for you.


Sculpt two or more areas of the body during one procedure

Before surgery

A patient care concierge will guide you through the entire consultation process, which can be attended in person or virtually. During the consultation, your surgeon will learn about your goals, answer any questions, and perform an examination to create a personalized surgical plan. You will then be matched with a surgical coordinator who will walk you through each step of the preoperative process.

During surgery

Your surgeon will use the revolutionary S.A.F.E liposuction technique, which uses mechanical agitation to loosen fat cells before removal to preserve as many as possible for the injection process. A small incision is made and a small tube, or cannula, is inserted directly into the fat deposit. The fat cells are harvested and then prepared for injection.

Multiple injections are placed in the breasts to inject fat creating symmetrical, natural-looking results. The cannula injects the fat, effectively reducing the risk of bruising around the injection points and allowing for a smooth insertion of the fat cells into the breast tissue. To close the incisions, your surgeon will use a unique layered suturing technique that minimizes tension to minimize scarring.

After surgery

The typical recovery period for liposuction is just a few days, and the fat transfer causes minimal pain. Mild swelling and bruising are common around the incision sites but should not cause significant pain. Most activities can be resumed in around four days, although patients should avoid strenuous exercise for at least two weeks. Patients should not sleep on their chests during this time.

Your surgeon will provide specific instructions for optimal post-operative care, including an advanced scar management protocol after the initial healing period. Your surgical team is always available and will closely monitor your recovery in the weeks and months following surgery.
