Breast Augmentation can be done using Fat Transfer. The Fat Transfer, also known as Fat Grafting, can be done on breasts and is an alternative to implants to achieve a natural modest breast augmentation. Breast Fat Transfer uses fat cells removed during Liposuction from areas including the abdomen, hips and love handles and is then re-injecting into the breast area. A body Fat Transfer can also feel and look more natural than a body implant. *
When Do We Recommend Breast Augmentation?
Fat Transfers are performed on people who have overall good health and who have a realistic expectation of what the procedure is and what it can do for you. We suggest that smokers stop smoking before and following the procedure as smoking has proven to slow down the healing process and can hinder result. The most critical factor to consider is that you need to have adequate fat deposits to use for the fat transfer procedure.
Traditionally, Fat Transfer has been used to surgically fill and soften edges of smaller localised areas. Plastic and Aesthetic Specialists view Fat Transfers as a better options for sculpting larger areas of the body and face. Plastic Surgeons are using Fat Transfer methods more and more as an alternative to artificial body implants. Fat Transfer involves your own fat cells which means that it is bio-compatible and limits the risks associated with other treatment options. *
When Do We Advise Against It?
At the time of consultation our doctor will assess the patient both with respect to the prior medical and surgical history and the patients current state of health. An assessment will also be done of the areas desired to be treated and to determine whether on not you have fat deposits or unwanted areas of fat that can be used for the fat transfer. Based on a clinical assessment the doctor will make a recommendation for treatment. Any patient whose assessment poses risk factors will be advised against the treatment and alternate solutions sought.
The Fat Transfer treatment cannot be performed on pregnant women, lactating woman, and those suffering from liver disease or patients fitted with a pacemaker. Other clinical conditions are assessed individually and are discussed in consultation.
How Does It Work?
Specialists perform a long lasting body contouring procedure to achieve and attain a shapelier breast area with filling and rounding in all the right places. This body sculpting procedure used for both the breast and butt area created by gently manipulating the transferred fat to create a more rounded smooth contour in all the right places.
In order to obtain the desired volume of fat for the transfer, the fat is removed by performing Liposuction on one or more areas of the body. The added benefit for the patient is that you will have fat removed from unwanted areas on the body and then using it where you want it! The result is a reduced and tightening in areas such as the abdomen, thighs and lower back. *
What Are The Unwanted Effects / Risks Of The Treatment?
As with any medical or surgical procedure, there are risks associated with this procedure and complications that may result from oral medications and the healing process. Although there is less risk associated with Fat Transfer and less changes of having any allergic reaction, there are several common risks to be expected following your procedure. The most common include bruising, swelling, stiffness, redness on the skin, bumps or uneven skin and asymmetry may also occur. You can reduce the potential complications by following the Specialist’s instructions both before and following your procedure.
