Breast Augmentation using fat grafting, a technique in which a plastic surgeon uses liposuction to remove fat from elsewhere in your body and relocate it to your breasts.
The aim is to remove unwanted fat from an area of the body (such as the tummy or thighs) and use it to smoothen or increase the size of the breasts.
WHAT DOES FAT TRANSFER TO BREAST INVOLVES?
A surgical fat transfer can be carried out under general anesthetic
It involves 3 main stages:
- Removing the fat. Small incisions are made in the skin and a thin tube is used to suck out small amounts of fat. The incisions are then closed with stitches and a small dressing placed over them.
- Preparing the fat. Special equipment is used to quickly spin the fat, to separate it from any blood and other fluids.
- Injecting the fat. A needle and syringe are used to inject small amounts of fat into the treatment area. The injections are given through tiny holes in the skin, so stitches are not usually needed.
The procedure usually lasts a couple of hours. You may be able to go home soon after the procedure is finished, or you may need to stay in hospital overnight.
If a large area is being treated, your treatment may need to be carried out over 2 or more sessions.
You should not feel much pain during the procedure, but you may have some for a few days or weeks afterwards. You’ll be given painkillers if you need them.
RECOVERY (AFTER THE PROCEDURE)
You’ll need to arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure.
You can start driving again when you’re able to do so without experiencing any discomfort.
The treated areas will probably be quite bruised and swollen for a few weeks. You may want to take a couple of weeks off work.
It can take up to 6 months for a surgical fat transfer to fully take effect, as some of the injected fat may be reabsorbed by your body during the first few months after the procedure.
