Fat Grafting Enhancement

Although the use of implants is the most common and sought-after method for women seeking breast augmentation, fat enhancement injections, also known as fat grafting, for autologous augmentation can offer a subtler, less invasive solution. In this newer, increasingly popular technique, fat from another part of the body, such as the thighs, buttocks or abdomen is transferred to the chest area, resulting in fuller, perkier and more youthful looking breasts with minimal scarring.

Are breast fat injections right for me?

Breast fat enhancement injections are an excellent choice for anyone unhappy with the shape, volume, symmetry or voluptuousness of their breasts, but they are an especially good fit for women over 30 who are experiencing decreased elasticity and sagging, or who may have had more than one pregnancy. This procedure is ideal for those who only wish to increase their bust by one or two cup sizes. However, fat injections can be combined with a breast lift, a traditional breast augmentation with implants, or breast revisions, to create a total breast makeover with spectacular results. Additionally, because fat grafting may involve liposuction, clients can experience the added slimming benefit of body contouring.

Choosing the best physician for breast fat injections:

Dr. Capizzi, a graduate of the prestigious Mayo Clinic with two board certifications in plastic surgery and general surgery, has tirelessly dedicated himself to innovation and research in the field of breast aesthetics. He and his skilled, seasoned team of RNs and injection specialists are consistently on the cutting edge of the latest cosmetic procedures, ensuring clients are receiving the highest quality care available in the industry. Dr. Capizzi has performed hundreds of successful fat injections, leading to a reputation as one of the top fat injection physicians in the region, with a loyal following of long-term clients who entrust the doctor with the beauty, health and longevity of their breasts.

About fat injection techniques:

As with any procedure, your journey towards actualizing your best self begins with a detailed consultation. Dr. Capizzi does not cut corners when it comes to answering your questions and listening to your fears or concerns. During this time, the doctor will take your measurements, consider your health and medical records, as well as past pregnancies, and go over before and after photographs to determine your ideal results.

Unlike breast augmentation with implants, the fat injection procedure requires no incisions. Using liposuction, fat cells are strategically harvested from the thighs, belly or rear in such a way to preserve the body’s natural proportions and symmetry. This requires a meticulous, exacting surgeon, and as a confirmed perfectionist, Dr. Capizzi will take great pains to maintain your aesthetic standards. Fat injections take around 2 hours and patients are treated under general anesthesia or twilight sedation.

Recovery after fat enhancement injections:

One of the reasons women favor breast fat injections is because of the rapid recovery period and decreased pain. Often the injections are performed during multiple visits, which encourages precision and accuracy in shaping the new breasts. Between these visits, an effect known as “dimpling” may occur, however there is no cause for alarm. This is temporary and will vanish once the entire procedure is complete. Rest assured that Dr. Capizzi delivers among the top fat injections available and will personalize your recovery plan for maximum comfort and a truly beautiful final outcome.
