Fat injections - Breast

Fat Transfer To The Breast

Your own body fat, obtained from liposuction, can be transferred to the breasts to achieve a very natural breast enhancement, without the use of breast implants.

Fat Grafting For Breast Augmentation (Lipo Augmentation)

Lipo Augmentation of the breast combines a comprehensive body liposuction procedure with breast augmentation using fat. The procedure eliminates the need for an artificial breast implant.

The amount of fat required for Lipo Augmentation can be substantial. Good candidates for Lipo Augmentation must have a sufficient amount of body fat to do the procedure. The fat is removed using a special liposuction technique that minimizes trauma to the fat. Regions of the body used for fat donor sites include the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, buttock and arms. Most patients receive a comprehensive body liposuction procedure in order to obtain enough fat for a Lipo Augmentation procedure.

The Lipo Augmentation procedure takes more time to perform in the operating room compared to a breast augmentation using implants. Touch up fat injections are at times needed to balance the appearance between the two breasts.
