A natural alternative to traditional breast augmentation, breast enlargement with a fat transfer allows women to subtly enhance the size of their chest.

An overview of the procedure

Breast augmentation via fat transfer removes the need for breast implants. It involves taking unwanted fat from another area of the body – such as the hips, abdomen or thighs – and grafting it to reshape the breasts.

The procedure has two purposes. It may be used to enhance the results of a traditional breast implants or Dr. Larson can perform it on its own as an alternative to breast implants. It is important to know that this approach is ideal for women who want to make small chest size increases; a more dramatic transformation is not possible with a fat transfer.

Your natural breasts – only better

When done with Dr. Larson’s conservative hand and artistic eye, the breast augmentation fat transfer procedure can create results that are both understated and beautiful.

For example, it can:

  • Enhance cleavage
  • Soften breast implants
  • Camouflage breast implant rippling
  • Improve breast shape or symmetry
  • Subtly increase fullness and restore small amounts of lost volume

Are you a candidate?

A fat transfer breast enhancement can be a terrific solution for select individuals. If you want to increase your breasts by about ¼ of a cup size and you have problem areas that would benefit from liposuction, this procedure may be right for you. During your initial consultation, Dr. Larson will assess your physique and help you determine if your desired results are attainable with this approach.

The benefits

  • Slim and contour another area of the body
  • Sculpt naturally fuller breasts using unwanted fat
  • No incisions are needed – the fat is transferred using small needles
  • A shorter recovery period when compared to traditional breast implants
  • Avoid the risks of breast implants – including capsular contracture and ruptures

The procedure

Your fat transfer breast procedure will be done on an outpatient basis, which means you will be free to return home immediately after the procedure. Depending on your health and personal preferences, it can be done under general or twilight anesthesia. The entire experience will last between two and four hours.

To begin, Dr. Larson will perform gentle liposuction. During this process, he will collect unwanted fat cells from another area of your body. He will then inject that fat into your breasts, strategically adding volume and sculpting the precise shape and size you desire.

The recovery

The recovery period associated with this procedure is quite manageable.

Here is a look at what to expect as you heal:

  • Any post-surgical swelling and bruising should subside within a few days
  • Wear your surgical bra and compression garments at all times during the recovery period
  • Most patients can resume their normal daily routine within three to five days
  • Continue to avoid exercise and strenuous activity for a full three weeks
