Breast augmentation with fat grafting

Breast augmentation with fat grafting

16th Nov 2015

Breast augmentation via fat grafting is a breast enhancement procedure that uses the body’s own fat cells to enlarge the breasts. This method of breast augmentation involves liposuction to remove unwanted fat from another part of the body, such as the thighs, buttocks, or abdomen, and uses it to create larger breasts that look and feel natural.


The main benefit of breast augmentation via fat grafting is that no foreign material is inserted into your breasts. And because this procedure uses tissues similar to the tissues that make up the breast, it’s possible to form a breast that feels natural.Liposuction removes excess fat from areas of the body that have not responded well to diet and exercise. For a breast augmentation procedure, this fat is then used to enhance the breasts.A few other benefits of this procedure are:

  • Only minuscule incisions are required, resulting in minimal scarring.
  • No risk of rejection by the body because no foreign materials are inserted.
  • Less downtime after surgery and quicker healing.
  • Implants carry the risk of leaking, rupture, and deflation. In fact, many implants need to be replaced at some point.
  • Once the fat attaches to the breast tissue, the results are permanent.

The Procedure

This procedure involves three steps:

  • Removing the fat using liposuction.
  • Processing the fat for optimal survival.
  • Injecting the fat into the breast.

The fat cells are first removed from the area decided upon beforehand. Often this is the buttocks, abdomen, or thighs—common areas that contain excess fat and can be slimmed and toned by the removal of fat.
