Wouldn’t it be fantastic if we could take unwanted fat from areas of our bodies and use it to enlarge our breasts? Women have been saying this for years. This procedure is called Fat Grafting or Fat Transfer to the Breasts.
Some women would prefer to have a more natural looking augmentation option, rather than implants. Why not use your own unwanted fat from you waist, hips and thighs and place it in your breast tissue to give you fuller, larger more supple breasts? Fat grafting to the breasts can even disguise implants that do not look natural and smooth out rippling, or correct embarrassing size difference between breasts. You will get a much softer shape that looks and feels natural.
How is Fat Transfer to the Breasts performed?
Dr. Lockwood starts by harvesting the fat using an advanced liposuction procedure. Once all the necessary fat is removed, he then slowly injects it into the breast tissue. This procedure has minimal scarring, and the results can be seen immediately after surgery.
Fat transfer to the Breasts can take anywhere from 1-2 hours and is usually done under local anesthesia.The surgery is performed at our state-of-the-art surgerical facility located at The First Glance Clinic.
What’s the recovery period after Fat Transfer to the Breasts?
As with most cosmetic surgeries, you will need to take time to recover. The recovery period will be different for each patient depending on the extent of the surgery, the area of the body, and the patient’s health.
After Fat Transfer to the Breasts, most woman feel uncomfortable for the first couple of days and depending on their occupation and extent of the surgery can return to work 1-week after surgery. Bruising, swelling and discomfort can last a couple of days, or up to 2-weeks.
