Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer
Fat transfer breast augmentation essentially uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body such as thighs, buttocks and abdomen. This is a breast augmentation option for women who are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size and would prefer natural results without an implant.
Did you know?
Average recovery time from breast augmentation with fat transfer is usually quicker than implant surgery.
Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation with fat transfer?
Best candidates are physically healthy women with fully developed breasts who are unsatisfied with their breast size and fullness or concerned about breast asymmetry.
What should I expect during breast augmentation with fat transfer procedure?
This procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Markelov will remove fat from one area of your body using liposuction and carefully inject it back as hundreds of small individual droplets in the breast through small incisions.
Will I need to follow any post-operative instructions?
Your breasts will be wrapped in gauze dressings and an elastic bandage or support bra will minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal. You will be given specific instructions that will include how to care for your breasts following surgery, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection, and when to follow-up with Dr. Markelov.
