Do you want to enhance your breasts without implants? Breast augmentation with fat transfer is an innovative approach to breast enlargement that uses your won fat to change the shape and size of your breasts. To find out if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation with fat transfer, contact us to schedule a personal consultation.
Preparations Before the Surgery
Breast augmentation with fat transfer is a relatively straightforward procedure, but the outcome is highly dependent on the skills of the plastic surgeon. A certain level of finesse is needed to maintain a natural yet enhanced appearance. For this reason, the first step you should take is to schedule a consultation at Richmond Plastic Surgeons. We specialize in breast augmentation with fat transfers, so you will love the results.
Some women require a procedure known as “tissue expansion” prior to the procedure. This process stretches the breast tissue and muscle to accommodate the increase in breast size.
What to expect on the day of surgery
Enhancing the breasts via fat transfers is a two-step process. First, the fat is harvested from another part of your body, such as the hips, abdomen, thighs or back. The amount of fat that is removed will only make a slight change in the appearance of the donor area. If you have liposuction specifically to remove larger amounts of fat, we can use that fat for your breast augmentation. Liposuction requires very small incisions through which a special tube, known as a cannula, is inserted. The cannula is connected to a suction device and performs two operations — dislodging the fat and removing it from the body. Once we have donor fat, it is processed and then injected into the breasts to achieve the desired enhancement.
