What Is Breast Fat Transfer Surgery?

Breast fat transfer surgery, more commonly known as fat transfer breast augmentation or autologous fat transfer, is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a patient’s own fat to increase breast size or improve breast shape.

This technique offers a more natural alternative to breast implants, as it utilizes the patient’s fat to create a fuller, more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

What are the Pros and Cons of Breast Fat Transfer Surgery?

Compared to traditional breast augmentation, breast fat transfer surgery has a range of benefits and limitations. These include:

What Are the Basic Steps Involved in Dr. Abtahi’s Breast Fat Transfer Surgery Procedure?

While Dr. Abtahi takes a highly personalized approach to each of his breast fat transfer patients, there are several fundamental steps involved in any successful breast fat transfer surgery. These are:

During the initial consultation, Dr. Abtahi discusses the patient’s goals and reasoning for breast fat transfer surgery. This process helps align expectations and design a plan to deliver these results. 

On the day of the surgery, the patient can either be put under general anesthesia, or Dr. Abtahi may choose to use local anesthesia with sedation. This choice depends on the extent of the procedure, the patient’s preferences, and Dr. Abtahi’s recommendations.

Dr. Abtahi will use liposuction to harvest fat from a pre-determined donor site, often the lower abdomen, hips, or thighs. Small incisions are made in the skin, and a thin cannula is inserted to extract the fat.

The harvested fat is processed and purified to isolate healthy fat cells. This process involves centrifugation and filtration of the harvested material to separate the fat cells from other components, such as blood and connective tissue. This process significantly improves fat tissue uptake by the breast.

The processed fat is then carefully injected into the breasts using small syringes and cannulas. Dr. Abtahi distributes the fat in small amounts and at various depths to achieve the desired shape, size, and contour.

Once the fat injections are complete, all incisions are sealed with sutures and are protected with a dressing.

The patient is then moved to a recovery area where they are monitored as they wake up from anesthesia. They will be given post-operative care instructions to follow and can then return home to begin recovery.

Dr. Abtahi ensures he is available to all his patients during their recovery period. Patients will have pre-scheduled follow-up meetings, but they can also reach out to Dr. Abtahi if they have any concerns while they recover.

What Patients Must Understand Before Deciding on Breast Fat Surgery

Breast fat transfer surgery, like any other aesthetic procedure, is a decision not to be taken lightly.

There are numerous considerations patients must first understand before they commit to breast fat transfer surgery, including:

Not all patients are suitable candidates for breast fat transfer surgery. Factors, such as overall health, breast size, shape, and the availability of adequate donor fat, will determine if a particular patient is a suitable candidate for the treatment.

Breast fat transfer surgery delivers exquisite, natural-looking results, but as mentioned earlier, it does not have the capacity to increase breast size in the way breast augmentation with implants can. Patients seeking more dramatic enhancements to their breasts should consult with their surgeon to decide on the most appropriate procedure.

Patients must be aware that the ongoing results of their breast fat transfer surgery depend on their commitment to maintaining a constant body weight, which means managing their weight through proper nutrition and exercise. If the patient loses or gains significant amounts of weight, this will impact the size of their breasts as well.

Patients need a clear understanding of the potential results of breast fat transfer surgery and maintain realistic expectations about the outcome. While the procedure can create a natural-looking enhancement, it cannot guarantee perfection or meet all aesthetic goals.

Breast fat transfer surgery can be expensive, and in many instances, insurers will classify it as a non-mandatory, or an aesthetic procedure, meaning they will not cover the cost. The patient must make sure they discuss the costs and payment options available with their surgeon.
