Who Makes A Good Candidate for Breast Aug with Fat Grafting?
Are you looking for a way to naturally achieve breast enhancement? There are many reasons why our patients lose fullness or shape, and develop sagging or droopy breasts. To help restore volume loss, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang offers breast aug with fat transfer in Tampa, FL. Some areas of our bodies hold onto stubborn fat more than we may like. Thankfully, at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, we offer a breast augmentation without implants that use your own body fat. For those looking for a natural treatment versus breast implants, we also offer autologous fat transfers.
What is fat grafting?
A fat transfer breast augmentation works by moving pre-existing body fat from various parts of the body and re-injecting it into your breasts. This multi-step process is a long-lasting natural solution for patients in Tampa, FL who want to achieve fuller breasts without implants. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Mang customizes each procedure according to a patient’s goals for surgery. Some popular areas for fat transfer come from your buttocks, thighs, or abdomen.
Breast augmentation with fat grafting candidate requirements
During a consultation, Dr. Mang can determine if you’re a good candidate for breast augmentation with fat grafting. Some requirements for surgery include:
Being in good health
Not currently breastfeeding or pregnant
Dissatisfied with the volume, shape, or symmetry of your breasts
Want to enlarge breasts by a cup size or less
You have enough fat to remove for a successful fat transfer
How does a fat transfer work?
First, anesthesia is administered to keep you comfortable. Next, Dr. Mang performs liposuction to extract the fat that he will transfer to your breasts. This fat is harvested and then purified using a centrifuge. Next, this healthy fat tissue is injected into your breasts. This continues until he believes he has achieved your goals for surgery.
Benefits of getting a fat transfer to breast
There are numerous benefits for getting a fat transfer to breast surgery in Tampa, FL, including:
No implants: While breast augmentation surgery with implants is safe, there are risks associated with getting them, including rippling or rupture.
Natural-looking results: Because of how the fat transfer process works, there is only so much fat that can be re-injected into the breasts. This means that you can only increase your breast size by one cup size or a bit more. This leads to a less dramatic result that is more natural-looking.
Sculpts and augments at the same time: Perhaps the biggest benefit is that it removes fat from an area of the body and repurposes it. A patient can slim a problem area while increasing their breast size.
Less invasive: It’s much less invasive than a full breast augmentation, which means that recovery takes a mere few days compared to six weeks or longer.
Less scarring: Because the fat used during surgery is removed from the body using liposuction, your incisions are very small. This is what is responsible for reducing the appearance of visible scarring.
Can fat transfer lift breasts?
Unlike implants, we cannot lift your breasts with a breast augmentation with a fat grafting procedure. Also, this re-harvested fat doesn’t prevent sagging that may develop after pregnancy, weight loss, or aging.
