How does fat transfer to breasts work?
We perform your surgery in one of our private AAAHC-accredited operating rooms at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL. This outpatient procedure takes about two hours. To begin, we use local anesthesia at the liposuction incision. Once you are comfortable, Dr. Mang will begin the liposuction process and remove fat from the stomach, hips, thighs, or buttocks. During your consultation, he will discuss the best liposuction areas for you. Next, a cannula is inserted in the incision to extract fat, which is then placed in a centrifuge for purification. This purified fat is put into syringes and injected directly into your breasts.
Fat transfer to breast results
After your breast augmentation with fat grafting, you will need to care for both your breasts and the liposuction incision. Swelling and bruising are normal around the treatment sites. To ensure you heal properly, you will need to follow all aftercare instructions that Dr. Mang gives you at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. We will schedule follow-up appointments in Tampa, FL, where we can monitor your results.
How long does fat transfer last in breasts?
As with any other fat transfer procedure, some of the fat that is extracted and transferred may die in the first several days. Also, a small amount may be absorbed by the body in the first few weeks or months. Most patients can expect up to 80% of their transferred cells to survive. Dr. Mang will recommend you sleep on your back for at least six weeks to avoid any direct pressure on your breasts, which causes fat cells to die. Once healing is complete, your results should be considered long-term. This is because your transferred fat cells will have established themselves with new blood vessels.
