Breast Fat Transfer
Breast size and fullness can have a huge effect on body confidence. Factors such as weight loss, pregnancy/breast feeding, or ageing can cause breasts to look emptier or lose their shape, while many others are born with naturally smaller breasts which can leave some feeling insecure.
Fat transfer to the Breasts, also known as lipomodelling, lipofilling or a natural breast enhancement is a minimally-invasive procedure that offers a subtle enhancement to the breasts. It is a popular choice for women who are looking to add shape and volume to their chest, whilst removing stubborn pockets of fat elsewhere on the body.
Whilst breast implants are the most common way to increase the size of breasts, not everybody wants serious surgery or breast implants. Fat transfer to the breasts can provide a subtle enhancement using their own tissue.
Breast Enlargement with Fat Transfer involves removing pockets of fat from other areas of your body (such as the legs or abdomen) and transferring the fat into the breast area to increase volume and shape in a subtle, natural-looking way. Stubborn areas of fat around the body can be difficult to rid of through exercise and diet alone and, for some, a form of body contouring treatment combined with fat transfer can be an effective way to achieve their end goal.
Am I Suitable for Breast Fat Transfer?
Fat Transfer breast augmentation is suitable for those wanting to shape their figure while achieving subtle enhancement to the breasts. Fat Transfer is not recommended if you:
- Want a significant increase in breast size.
- Don’t have enough fat to transfer.
- Require an uplift.
- Are considering having children within the next year.
- Are solely after breast augmentation, without liposuction.
You will need to have enough fat to transfer for treatment, meaning it is not always suitable for those with low body mass. We advise all patients to be cautious with their expectations. Breast Fat Transfer will add shape and definition but will not provide a substantial increase in size.
Breast Fat Transfer Consultation
Your first step on your breast fat transfer journey is to meet with one of our expert fat transfer surgeons who specialise in breast fat transfer procedures.
At your consultation, they will:
- Review your medical history and family history.
- Explain what is involved in a breast fat transfer procedure.
- Examine and measure your breasts.
- Assess the areas you would like to take fat from.
- Discuss your expectations from surgery.
- Detail the risks and complications of breast fat transfer surgery.
- Go through the aftercare and recovery process.
You will then be allocated a dedicated patient coordinator who will be your point of contact should you wish to go ahead with the procedure.
During your journey, you may decide to have a number of consultations with your plastic surgeon and their nursing team before deciding to go ahead with surgery.
