For those who want to avoid implants, this natural treatment uses liposuction to transfer fat directly to your breasts.

To be a candidate for breast augmentation with fat grafting, you should:

  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle

  • Be within 10 – 15 pounds of your goal weight

  • Have fully-developed breasts

  • Have enough body fat to transfer to your breast

  • Be done having children

  • Not be pregnant or breastfeeding

How does fat transfer to breasts work?

We perform this surgery at one of our private AAAHC-accredited operating rooms at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. This outpatient procedure will take about two hours. First, we will give local anesthesia at your liposuction incision. Once you are comfortable, Dr. Mang starts the liposuction process and removes fat from the arms, back, flanks, stomach, hips, thighs, or buttocks. During your consultation, he will discuss the best liposuction areas for your body. Next, he will use a cannula in the incision site to extract fat. This fat is then placed in a centrifuge for purification. Your purified fat is put into syringes and then injected directly into your breasts.

Fat graft breast recovery time

After your breast augmentation with fat grafting procedure, you must care for both your breasts and the liposuction incision. To make sure you heal properly, you need to follow all aftercare instructions that we give you at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. We also will schedule your follow-up appointments where we can monitor your results in Tampa, FL.

How long does swelling last after fat grafting?

Swelling and bruising are normal around your treatment sites. Most patients are bruised and swollen for about 1 – 3 weeks. It’s important that you avoid exercise during this time. We recommend taking off 1 – 2 weeks from work. The first few days after your fat transfer augmentation, you may feel some discomfort around the breasts and an aching sensation for a few weeks after treatment. This is normal and will subside as your bruising and swelling do.

Your breasts will settle into their final shape in about six months. As with any other fat transfer procedure, some of the fat extracted and transferred may die in the first few days. Also, a small amount may be reabsorbed by the body eventually. Dr. Mang recommends sleeping on your back for at least six weeks to avoid any direct pressure on your breasts, which can contribute to fat cells dying. Once your healing is complete, your results are long-lasting. This is because your transferred fat cells establish themselves with new blood vessels.
