Continue reading to learn more about the many advantages of breast augmentation with fat transfer and what you can expect throughout the treatment process.
What Is A Fat Transfer?
A fat transfer procedure includes taking fat from one area of the body in order to place it in another area. The most common regions for placing fat are the breasts, butt, face, and hips. Rather than having to place an implant or an injectable filler, a fat transfer can utilize fat that is already available in the body to restore volume to a separate area. For some patients at Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery, this option is more desirable as it eliminates the need for a foreign object within the body. It may also be ideal for Orlando, FL patients who are not candidates for a breast implant procedure.
The Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Procedure
Typically performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, a fat transfer breast augmentation occurs within two separate parts. Initially, fat will be removed from an area, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, or butt, with the use of liposuction. The exact area that the fat is harvested from will be discussed with Dr. Soto during an initial consultation at Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery. In the second portion of the procedure, a special cannula will be utilized r to place the fat in the breast area. Incisions are necessary; however, they can be placed within the natural crease of the breasts, so the scars are less visible. Once purified, the harvested fat is inserted into the breasts in multiple layers to best achieve the desired size and shape.
Advantages Of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Unlike a traditional breast augmentation that utilizes an implant, a fat transfer breast augmentation simply takes your existing fat cells from one area to create fuller breasts. Not only can this create restored breasts that feel more natural, but it can also help to reduce any potential side effects that could occur due to an implant rupture or movement. Recovery time could also be shorter with a fat transfer option, and you can experience the added benefit of less fat in an undesired area due to the harvesting technique with liposuction. During a thorough and comprehensive consultation at Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery, Dr. Soto will be better able to determine if you may be an ideal candidate for a fat transfer breast augmentation or an implant option at our Orlando, FL facility.
