What is a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Fat transfer uses liposuction to harvest fat cells from an area of plenty (abdomen, thighs, flanks, etc.). After the cells are purified and sterilized, they are then injected into areas of depletion (breasts, buttocks, cheeks, temples, lips) to provide natural-looking enhancement without the need for implants or fillers.

In the case of breast augmentation, fat transfer can be used to provide patients with a viable alternative to implant surgery, decreasing risks. With a fat transfer breast augmentation, patients never have to worry about replacing their devices or dealing with complications. Allergic reactions to fat transfer are rare since the materials used to boost chest volume are taken directly from the patient’s body.

What Can I Expect From the Procedure?

During a fat transfer breast augmentation, Dr. Burgdorf will extract fat from a donor region using liposuction. He will choose the best area, such as the thighs, belly, flanks, or hips. After the fat cells are harvested, they are then filtered and purified before being strategically injected into the breasts. Dr. Burgdorf is careful to enhance the bust with symmetry and balance in mind. He will use more fat than is necessary to compensate for the fact that not all fat cells will survive.

What Will My Recovery Entail?

After a fat transfer breast augmentation procedure, patients may encounter mild swelling, bruising, or tenderness in both the donor and recipient areas of the body. These side effects are well contained with pain medications provided by the doctor. You will be fitted with compression garments and provided with a customized aftercare plan. At first, the breasts may appear slightly larger due to swelling. Over time, your new chest shape will emerge — balanced, elegant, and beautiful. 

Most patients can expect to resume work and low-impact activities within 7-10 days. However, they should avoid sports, heavy lifting, and strenuous exertion for 3-4 weeks in order to ensure optimal healing. Dr. Burgdorf believes in an extensive follow-up process, and his caring, compassionate nature extends long after you go home. He remains available to answer any questions during recovery and will see you for regularly scheduled visits to monitor your results.
