Breast Enlargement and Fat Grafting

Fat grafting is a procedure in which fat cells are removed from targeted areas of your body and injected into areas you are hoping to augment or enlarge. For breast augmentation with this technique, excess deposits of fat are typically removed with liposuction from areas such as the:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Buttocks

This procedure can serve the dual purpose of trimming your frame and enhancing your bust, making it an attractive option for some patients.

Benefits of Fat Grafting

Fat grafting has been used for various plastic surgery procedures for a number of years, gaining popularity due to a body’s ability to readily absorb its own fat. This has allowed fat grafting for facial procedures to produce results that are often longer lasting than those offered by other types of injectable fillers.

For breast augmentation, fat grafting offers both pros and cons. Fat injected into the breasts may be too quickly absorbed into the body, requiring multiple treatments before augmentation is noticeable. Reinjected fat can liquefy, form cysts, calcify, and result in aesthetic imperfections as well – issues that are much less likely with breast implants.

Techniques for breast augmentation through fat grafting are ever-evolving. Dr. Gartside remains on top of technological and procedural advancements, enabling her to offer the safest and most effective solutions to all of our patients.
