A few preliminary questions must be answered. 1. Do you have enough fat to take from the donor site via Liposuction? This treatment is not suitable for patients with very little body fat. You need an area or two where there is sufficient fat to liposuction from, generally the buttocks, stomach, or sides. If you do have sufficient fat, the Surgeon will determine the quality of the fat and likelihood of successful fat survival in the recipient site. 2. Are you looking for a subtle or modest increase in breast size? If you are looking to go from A cup to D cup, this procedure is not suitable for you and you might be better to consider breast implants, which are done at other clinics.
What are the main side effects?
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation is appealing to many patients due to the low risk it presents compared to breast augmentation with silicone implants. As the substance providing the increase in volume is the patient’s own fat (rather than an implant); the risk of infection is greatly reduced. Capsular contraction, not uncommon with implants, is also highly unlikely to occur. Your Surgeon will discuss the specific risks relevant to your circumstances. However, some of the risks associated with this procedure are: Infection (a risk in all surgery) Cysts, microcalcification (the forming of small hard lumps) The death of some of the fat cells The possibility that some of the transferred fat cells will leave the breast area. Complications are unlikely and can usually be addressed by the surgeon, should they occur.
