FAT GRAFTING ENHANCEMENT

Not all women who seek breast augmentation choose implants. In recent years, breast fat grafting has grown in popularity and efficacy. This procedure is also known as breast injections, fat transfer, or natural breast augmentation; and can offer a subtler, less invasive alternative to breast implants.

Fat transfer breast augmentation has been around for decades and is not a new science. This is a multi-stage procedure that involves taking fat from one area of your body and enhancing the size or shape of the breasts. Also known as a natural breast augmentation, fat grafting, autologous fat transfer, or breast injections, has become increasingly popular in recent years for women who want a modest increase in breast size without the potential risks and side effects of breast implants.

Is Breast Fat Grafting Right For Me?

Breast fat grafting is an excellent choice for anyone unhappy with their breasts. Common complaints have to do with the shape, size, symmetry, or fullness of the breasts. Breast fat transfer can achieve a fuller look, better symmetry, and increase in volume of up to 2 bra sizes.

Fat grafting is an especially good fit for women over 30 who are experiencing sagging, or who may have had more than one pregnancy. These patients tend to have better fat stores than younger candidates, making them ideal patients for the procedure.

Combine fat grafting with other surgical procedures to create a total breast makeover with amazing results.

Fat grafting can be combined with:

  • a breast lift
  • Breast Implants
  • Or breast implant exchange/breast revision.

About Fat Grafting Techniques

Step 1 – Consultation

Once the fat has been purified, it is loaded into syringes for reinjection. Your surgeon will again make tiny incisions usually disguised in your underarms or at the bottom of the breast, before using a cannula to place the fat in your breasts. Just two incisions per breast are needed to achieve the desired size and shape enhancements of each patient.

Step 2 – Liposuction

Liposuction and fat transfer are completed in the same surgery but liposuction is the first step. At Capizzi MD we use a combination of ultrasound-assisted liposuction and power-assisted liposuction to preserve the integrity of the fat cells and remove the most volume possible. The combination of these two techniques leads to better results while fat grafting. During this part of the process, your surgeon will make very tiny incisions and insert a cannula (a thin tube) into the areas where fat is being removed.

Step 3 – Fat Purification

After the liposuction is complete, the fat must be filtered or washed to remove impurities such as blood or oil. At Capizzi MD we use Sientra’s Viality device for fat purification before injection. These purification methods are FDA-approved and proven by numerous studies to result in a higher fat volume retention for patients. It also takes under ten minutes to purify the fat cells, which leads to less recovery time for our patients. When using Sientra’s Viality fat transfer system, over 90% of the fat harvested is viable for grafting.

Your surgeon will again make tiny incisions usually disguised in your underarms or at the bottom of the breast, before using a cannula to place the fat in your breasts. Just two incisions per breast are needed to achieve the desired size and shape enhancements of each patient.

Recovery After Fat Grafting

One of the reasons women favor breast fat grafting is because of the rapid recovery and minimal pain. Additional treatments can be scheduled after the initial transfer procedure, which allows for precision and accuracy in shaping the new breasts. Between these visits, an effect known as “dimpling” may occur, yet there is no cause for alarm. This is temporary and will vanish once the entire journey is complete. The surgeons at Capizzi MD are highly regarded cosmetic surgeons who are committed to ongoing education in innovative techniques in the industry. They will personalize your recovery plan for maximum comfort and a beautiful final outcome.

About Fat Grafting Techniques

Step 1 – Consultation

Firstly, you will schedule a consultation appointment to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Great candidates are patients who have existing breast tissue as well as existing fat stores. Very slender/fit patients are not ideal candidates because of their low body fat. Patients who also only want a subtle change, such as an increase of a cup size or just the addition of cleavage, are also great candidates because of their expectations. During this consultation appointment, your physician will meet with you to determine what areas of liposuction would be good choices for optimal results and the best contour.
