Fat Transfer to Breasts FAQs

Yes! After a fat transfer procedure, the fat cells become permanently settled in their new location. This means that the results from the fat transfer can be permanent. However, keep in mind that changes in weight can affect the results of your procedure. Like any fat cells in the body, the newly transferred fat may be burned as a source of energy if you follow a weight loss diet and exercise plan.

For a typical fat transfer breast augmentation, patients need anywhere from one to three pounds of fat. However, this fat can be harvested from different areas of the body, and even multiple areas if needed. Therefore, most patients who are at a healthy and stable weight are good candidates for the treatment.

The cost of a fat transfer could be more or less than breast implants depending on the patient. It is important to remember that a fat transfer requires liposuction, which is a cost that some patients forget to consider. During your consultation, we can discuss the specifics of your treatment and identify the exact cost of your fat transfer.

While there are risks associated with any surgical procedure, fat transfer is believed to be a safe technique for breast augmentation. This is because it involves only the use of your own body fat. This may be preferable to some patients who want to avoid the risks that are associated with breast implants.

No. First and foremost, this would not be a safe practice, as it could produce a range of dangerous side effects. Second, your body would reject the fat if it were from someone else’s body, meaning you would not be able to achieve any increase in breast size.
