How Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Works
Breast enlargement with fat transfer incorporates two procedures that are performed simultaneously—liposuction, which enables the harvest of fat cells, and the fat grafting procedure itself, wherein the harvested fat is carefully prepared and then transferred to the breasts.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Kolker will assess anatomic contour, and will discuss your desires in detail. Areas of excess fat that may include outer thighs, inner thighs, tummy, the lumbar region, and elsewhere will be evaluated, and the regions that will best contribute to fat transfer as well as improved body contour will be identified. The benefits of autologous fat grafting to the breast are therefore twofold, in that body contouring of the “donor site” is a necessity.
Fat harvest is performed using liposuction techniques through tiny needle access sites. Dr. Kolker aspirates the fat required for fat transfer to the breasts by hand, rather than with a suction aspirator, to gently remove the fat cells and to maximize fat graft “take”. The fat is prepared meticulously, and is then transferred through small needle sites to the breast. The fat transfer process requires finesse and delicate technique to carefully thread the cells into multiple planes of the breast to promote the best Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation results.
