Many women look for ways to increase their breast size without having surgery. Some are too busy to take time off for breast augmentation surgery, while others may be looking for a more subtle cosmetic enhancement, and aren’t sure whether they want breast implants.
If this sounds like you, consider having an alternate cosmetic procedure known as breast fat transfer. Just as the name implies, your cosmetic surgeon harvests your body’s own fat (usually from an area like the thighs, abdomen, or flanks), processes it with special equipment, and injects it into an area where you really want it -- your bust line.
If you’re unhappy with the size of your breasts, this procedure is worth serious consideration. Breast fat transfer is less invasive than breast augmentation, but it’s important to know facts about this procedure before moving forward. Here are key points you need to know:
- You’ll experience an increase in size, but it won’t be as dramatic as breast augmentation. Some women want a breast size increase of two cups or more. In this case, breast augmentation is more effective. On the other hand, breast fat transfer offers an increase of around one cup size. This is just the boost many women are looking for, but those who want more significant changes should opt for breast augmentation.
- The fat harvesting portion of breast fat transfer offers plenty of benefits. Many women are thrilled with the first part of the procedure, which involves liposuction. During the procedure, your surgeon will harvest the amount of fat needed for your breasts, and carefully remove it via liposuction. This offers a multi-benefit sculpting procedure in which a problem area can be slimmed down while breast size is increased. Even thin women often have enough body fat for a successful breast fat transfer.
- Use a surgeon experienced in fat transfer procedures, especially for breasts. Breast fat transfer is becoming increasingly popular as more women opt for non-surgical ways to enhance their breast size. As a result, many providers with little to no experience in fat transfer procedures may start offering breast fat transfer. Before choosing a surgeon, ask questions about their experience and qualifications, and look at before-and-after photos of previous patients. You need to see proof that your surgeon can perform a breast fat transfer successfully.
