Breast lipofilling is the opposite of the breast liposculpture. In liposculpture, fat is removed from the breasts, whereas in lipofilling, fat is added to the breasts. Lipofilling is an effective treatment for smaller or poorly shaped breasts. If your small breast is causing self-esteem issues for you, you may consider lipofilling surgery. Lipofilling of the breasts involves the use of your own body fat to add projection and shape to your breasts. The procedure has a history of delivering spectacular aesthetic outcomes. After lipofilling, your breasts will not only increase in size from a mild to moderate degree but also be enhanced in terms of shape. How is breast lipofilling performed? In order to understand what results to expect after breast lipofilling, you must know what the surgery involves and how it is performed. Lipofilling of the breasts is performed under anesthesia. In order to qualify for the procedure, you need to have excess fat in different parts of your body, such as the abdomen, sides, flanks, etc. The plastic surgeon will perform liposuction on the fat donor areas to remove the excess fat. After removing the fat from each area, the incision will be sutured and closed. Liposuction involves the use of a special cannula to release the fat and remove it from the body. In the second step, the plastic surgeon will spin the fat in a centrifuge at high speed. This step is done to process the fat and remove the impurities, fluids, blood, and dead and damaged fat cells. Only the best quality fat cells will be retained for transfer to the breasts. In the last step, the plastic surgeon will carefully graft the fat cells in your breasts, ensuring the desired breast shape and size is achieved. The surgeon would rely on his sense of aesthetics and artistry to deliver you the desired outcomes. Results of breast lipofilling There are many patients who don’t know when they should consider lipofilling and what to expect from the intervention. There are certain signs that indicate you require lipofilling. For example, you should consider lipofilling if your breasts are smaller, poorly contoured, or asymmetrical. Smaller breasts can be a source of lower self-esteem for many women because modern beauty trends require women to have bigger breasts. Women with smaller breasts suffer from a number of emotional problems as a result. Breast lipofilling will increase your breast size by using your own body fat. Secondly, if your breasts are poorly shaped and the condition is affecting your quality of life, you may consult with a plastic surgeon to discuss whether lipofilling can help fix the condition. Lipofilling is an effective breast contouring intervention. Also, lipofilling is an effective treatment for asymmetric breasts. If one of your breasts is smaller than the other and you want both breasts to be bigger, lipofilling can be performed on the smaller breast to increase its size, making it equal to the size of the bigger breast. The results of breast lipofilling are completely natural, and the intervention is safer because it uses your own body fat to resolve the aesthetic flaws. If you have undergone the intervention to augment your breasts, you can expect your breasts to increase in size from a mild to moderate level. The breasts would be visibly shapelier and bigger after the intervention. On the other hand, if the reason you underwent the surgery was to treat the asymmetry in your breasts, your breasts will become equally sized and balanced after the surgery. The improvement in your breasts will enhance your overall body profile and definition. Breast lipofilling can also be used to treat mildly saggy breasts. The surgery will involve injecting about 100 cc – 200 cc fat in each breast, so they become firmer, perky, and sexier. While breast lipofilling provides long-lasting results, if you end up in the hands of an inexperienced surgeon, the results may not survive longer. For example, if the surgeon failed to process the fat cells properly or if the fat grafting was not done properly, the results would be short-lived. In some cases, the results may not even transpire. Secondly, weight loss can affect the outcomes achieved with lipofilling. The fat grafted in the breasts will behave just like the fat in other areas of your body. What this means is that weight loss after the surgery will shrink your breasts. In order to maintain the results of lipofilling, make sure to keep your weight stable. Candidacy for lipofilling In order to qualify for lipofilling, you must have excess fat in your body. The common fat donor sites are the abdomen, flanks, and sides. Secondly, you must be in the best of health. Health complications like diabetes, heart disease, and autoimmune disorders may increase the risks for you. As such, precautionary measures must be taken during the operation. Make sure to share your full health history with the doctor in advance of the surgery. Furthermore, your aesthetic goals must be realistic, reasonable, and achievable. The surgery can enhance your breasts; however, you must not expect the intervention to provide you the best breasts in the world or turn you into a celebrity. Also, if you are a smoker, you must stop smoking at least two weeks before the surgery because smoking can complicate the procedure and the recovery period. Conclusion Lipofilling of the breasts is a plastic surgery procedure that involves removing the excess fat from different areas of your body and transferring them to your breasts. The surgery is used to add projection to the breasts, treat breast asymmetry and mild breast sagging, and to make the breasts appear shapelier. The intervention has a good record of delivering impressive results. In order to achieve long-lasting results with lipofilling, make sure to have the intervention performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon.
