FaQ – Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer

How long do the results of Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer last?

The results of breast augmentation with fat transfer are generally long-lasting, but not permanent. While a portion of the transferred fat, typically 20-40%, may be reabsorbed by the body in the first few months, the remaining fat usually stays permanently. The longevity of the results can be influenced by factors such as age, lifestyle, and hormonal changes. It’s important to maintain a stable weight, as significant weight fluctuations can affect the size and shape of the augmented breasts.

What is the recovery process like for Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer?

Recovery from this procedure involves healing from both the liposuction and the breast augmentation. Patients typically experience bruising and swelling at both the donor and recipient sites. Most can return to normal activities within a week, but should avoid strenuous exercise for a few weeks. Compression garments are often recommended for the areas treated with liposuction. The full recovery process, including the settling of the fat and reduction in swelling, may take several weeks to a few months.

Can Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer achieve the same results as implants?

Breast augmentation with fat transfer generally provides a more subtle enhancement compared to implants. It is ideal for those seeking a natural increase in breast size, usually by one or two cup sizes. The procedure is not designed to provide the same level of enlargement that implants can achieve. It is also limited by the amount of viable donor fat available in the patient’s body. The final result is a more natural look and feel, with the added benefit of contouring the areas from which the fat was harvested.
