Implants Maintenance

Fat transfer-based breast augmentation is the ideal procedure for someone with excess subcutaneous fat elsewhere in the body and smaller breasts in proportion to the body. In this procedure, the use of your own body fat substitutes the requirement for breast implants.

Body fat from one of the areas such as hips, thighs, arms, or abdomen is extracted by means of an FDA-approved ultrasound assisted VASER liposuction. The collected fat is injected as required to get the desired breast enlargement complete with a prominent curvature. This eliminates the need for prosthetic breast implants while also doing away with the associated complications and interminable risks such as implant rupture, extensive mammograms, difficult maintenance, and capsular contraction. The only problem with a fat-grafting breast augmentation is that very often women who need and consider a breast augmentation are skinny and have small breasts. In such cases where the patient is not an ideal candidate, she is advised to opt for prosthesis saline or silicone breast implants. If the body structure otherwise permits fat grafting is done from the comparatively bulgy areas of the body such as buttocks, hips, and thighs.

While a fat transfer breast augmentation does not suit everyone it certainly comes with a large number of benefits. Doctors are increasingly considering fat transfer breast augmentation as a safe alternative and it proves handy in instances where an implant is not necessary. For example, this procedure would be very useful for someone who has undergone lumpectomy and is now looking for breast reconstruction. It can also be used in correcting defects such as uneven breasts. This is also a good alternative for those women who would like to have a subtle augmentation rather than having a scale-up by several sizes. Another benefit is that no foreign material is introduced into the body.

A fat transfer breast augmentation gives visible results but is not the correct procedure to bring about an increase in cup size. It usually gives a softer, more natural shape to the breasts but unlike an implant the fat gets reabsorbed by the body, causing the breasts to decrease in size over time. This absorption of fat usually results in returning back to square one and may require further reconstructive sessions. However, some clinics are successful in freezing any fat from the initial procedure so that it can be used in the future.


The treatment has been subject to a great deal of criticism on claims of misleading patients with regards to their expectation of results. Some evidence exist that injecting fat into the breasts sometimes lead to the formation of calcified lumps that harden over time. Some sources also claim that the reinvested fat can lead to the formation of cysts.
