Transform Your Breasts with Your Own Fat

Breast fat grafting, also known as autologous fat transfer, is a surgical procedure that utilizes the patient’s fat cells to enhance the shape and size of their breasts. This minimally invasive procedure involves liposuction to remove unwanted fat from the abdomen, hips, or thighs, followed by purification and injection of the fat into the breasts. The result is a more natural-looking enhancement without using saline or silicone implants. As an added benefit, patients enjoy a slimmer, more contoured silhouette in the donor areas.

Fat Graft Breast Augmentation & Lift

Fat graft breast augmentation and lift is a revolutionary surgical technique that combines breast fat grafting with a breast lift procedure. This two-in-one approach provides women with the opportunity to enhance their breasts’ size and shape while addressing sagging and drooping caused by aging, pregnancy, or weight loss. Fat grafting provides the additional volume, while the lift addresses sagging, elevating the breasts to a more youthful and perky position. The result is a natural-looking enhancement that restores confidence and self-esteem. Schedule a personalized consult to learn about your options for breast fat grafting in San Jose.

Breast Fat Grafting Corrects:

  • Asymmetrical breasts, where one breast is larger than the other
  • Deflated breasts due to aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss
  • Small breasts that lack volume and proportion
  • Irregularities caused by breast reconstruction after mastectomy
  • Poor results from previous breast augmentation with implants
  • Breasts with rippling or visible implant edges, a common problem with implants

Candidates for Breast Fat Grafting:

  • Desire natural-looking breast enhancement
  • Have asymmetrical or poorly shaped breasts
  • Want to avoid or remove breast implants
  • May have undergone mastectomy and want to reconstruct their breasts with their own tissue
  • May have experienced volume loss due to aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss
  • Have good overall health and are non-smokers or willing to stop smoking
  • Have sufficient donor fat in areas such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs
  • Have realistic expectations of the procedure and its outcomes

Your Breast Fat Grafting Session

Before your breast fat grafting procedure, you will have a consultation with your plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and expectations. During the consultation, your surgeon will evaluate your medical history, assess your breast tissue, and examine your donor fat areas to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

On the day of your surgery, you will receive local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure. Your surgeon will perform liposuction on the predetermined donor areas, removing fat cells from your body. The fat cells are purified and processed before being injected into your breasts in small amounts through a series of small incisions.

Some patients may require multiple fat grafting sessions for optimal results. Only 50% to 70% of the fat cells survive in the new location, so the procedure results may seem to weaken over time. Dr. Z will account for these possible changes during your breast fat grafting in San Jose, but some patients may need additional sessions to achieve their desired volume.

Your Journey to Recovery: Side Effects & Downtime

After your breast fat grafting procedure, you can expect some side effects and downtime as your body heals. You may experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which can be managed with pain medication and compression garments. You should avoid strenuous activities for several weeks and follow your surgeon’s postoperative instructions. Although the recovery period varies from person to person, most patients can resume normal activities within a week.

When Will I See the Results?

You will notice an immediate increase in the size and fullness of your breasts after the breast fat grafting procedure, but the final results will be visible after the swelling subsides and the fat cells settle into their new location. It may take a few weeks or months to achieve the final results, which are long-lasting and natural-looking. The results of breast fat grafting in San Jose may vary from person to person, and your plastic surgeon will provide you with a personalized timeline for your recovery.
