Breast augmentation is one of the most popular and frequently requested cosmetic procedures. While most patients enjoy traditional breast implants without side effects, not everyone is the right candidate for them. Belle Medical’s Fat Transfer treatment gives you a natural breast augmentation using only your own body fat, also known as autologous breast augmentation, eliminating risks like implant rejection and ensuring long-lasting, normal-looking results. Read on to learn more about our fat grafting breast augmentation treatment to see if you might be a good candidate.

What Is Fat Transfer? 

Fat Transfer involves taking fat from high-volume areas, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, or buttocks, and transferring it to the breasts to enhance their volume and create your desired body shape. With Fat Transfer, it’s possible to enlarge your cup size without using foreign implants or materials to eliminate risks and create realistic results that age normally. Using modern techniques to avoid the sagging and drooping sometimes associated with traditional augmentations, the surrounding tissue is left undamaged to promote a smooth and tightened appearance after treatment. Belle Medical’s advanced technology allows us to carry out implant-free Fat Transfer breast augmentations in our clinics rather than a hospital, evading the lengthy recovery time associated with traditional breast implants—most women return to normal activities 24-48 hours after treatment.

The Best Candidates for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Fat Transfer breast augmentation may be a good choice for many women, with some exceptions. It’s worth your consideration if the following descriptions apply to you. 

  • You’re dissatisfied with the shape, symmetry, and volume of your breasts—If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts due to losing volume from pregnancy, weight loss, or aging, you are a good candidate. It’s important to have realistic expectations for your results to maintain a healthy body image before and after treatment. 
  • You’re physically healthy and not pregnant or breastfeeding—Women with medical conditions are not good candidates, nor are women trying to have children or currently breastfeeding—the breasts need time to heal properly prior to treatment. 
  • You’re comfortable with enlarging your breast size by one cup or less—Fat Transfer breast augmentation is not intended to achieve the same magnitude of size increase as traditional breast implants. 
  • You have stubborn problem areas to take fat from—Fat Transfer requires removing fat from high-volume areas of the body. Women aren’t good candidates if they do not have enough fat to transfer to achieve desired results. 
  • You have sufficient time to recover—While the recovery time for Fat Transfer breast augmentation is significantly less than that of traditional breast implants, women should still have time to relax and recover in the days after treatment for proper healing.
