What Is Fat Grafting to the Breast?

Breast augmentation procedures increase breast size. Fat grafting, or transfer, to the breast is a procedure in which adipose tissue (fat) is harvested via liposuction, processed to ensure the fat is healthy, then reintroduced into the breast. The procedure provides a modest amount of enhancement in patients who do not desire breast implants.

The adipose tissue is typically harvested from the abdomen, back or thighs. Adipose tissue contains stem cells that can secrete growth factors that could improve the skin and breast tissue’s overall integrity.

The effect is natural-looking results for a shapelier bustline and leaner, more toned-looking abdomen and thighs. Patients may require 2-3 sessions to obtain the desired degree of enhancement.

What Are the Benefits of Fat Transfer to Breast in Los Angeles?

A fat transfer breast augmentation is a relatively low-risk alternative to breast implants due to using the patient’s own tissues. A Beverly Hills fat transfer can enhance the appearance of breasts and reduce the appearance of fat in the abdomen or thighs.

What Can I Expect During a Fat Grafting Procedure in Los Angeles?

Dr. Davis is dedicated to her patients’ results, and her expertise allows her to customize fat transfer procedures to address each patient’s needs. While each procedure will vary, there are some general steps you can expect. As with all procedures, it is important to thoroughly follow Dr. Davis’ instructions regarding physical activities, cleansing, and sun exposure to ensure optimal results following your Los Angeles fat transfer.

You will be greeted at the clinic by the peri-operative team and check in. Dr. Davis will evaluate you, perform her surgical markings, and will ensure you feel comfortable before entering the operating room. Once you are safely sedated with general anesthesia, Dr. Davis will begin your fat transfer breast augmentation procedure as determined during your consultation.

Dr. Davis will begin the liposuction procedure to harvest tissue for fat grafting by making small incisions at the treatment site. During liposuction, the treated areas are injected with a solution of saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine.

The separated fat is subsequently processed to ensure it is healthy and contains the correct elements to survive the transfer. The fat is then reintroduced into the breast using small, fine-gauge needles.

Following the procedure, the breasts are wrapped with a soft bandage that is maintained for 3 days. After day 3, a surgical or sports bra can be worn for 3-4 weeks.

The liposuction sites are dressed and potentially outfitted with compression garments.

During your consultation, Dr. Davis will explain the different procedures and help you determine which procedure will be most effective for your unique situation.

In most cases, patients experience visible results immediately following treatment. Results continue to improve over the next few weeks as the body heals and adjusts to its new contours and leaner appearance.

Fat transfer procedures may cause mild bruising or swelling at the treatment site. Some patients may require follow-up treatments due to the reabsorption of a portion of the transplanted fat cells.

Fat grafting results can be long-lasting and are often considered permanent. However, it’s important to note that not all of the transferred fat survives the process. Approximately 50-70% of the transferred fat typically survives and integrates into the recipient area. The results can stabilize after about 3 to 6 months, and the surviving fat cells can last for years, behaving like fat cells in the rest of the body.

The increase in breast size with fat grafting is generally more modest compared to implants. Most patients can expect to go up by one cup size in a single procedure. The exact increase depends on the amount of fat available for harvesting and transfer, as well as how much fat successfully integrates into the breast tissue. Multiple sessions may be needed for larger volume increases.

Yes, weight loss can affect fat transfer results. Since the transferred fat behaves like any other fat in your body, significant weight fluctuations can impact the volume and shape of the grafted area. Losing weight can cause the transferred fat cells to shrink, potentially diminishing the achieved volume.

Yes, the concept of “fluffing” can apply to fat transfer to the breasts, where the breasts may appear more natural and fuller as swelling subsides and the transferred fat settles. This process can take several weeks to months, as the initial post-operative swelling decreases and the surviving fat integrates with the existing breast tissue.

Fat is typically harvested from areas of the body where there is an excess of fat, such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks (love handles), and buttocks. The choice of harvest site depends on the patient’s body and where sufficient fat is available for extraction. The harvested fat is then processed and purified before being injected into the recipient area.
