How Long Does Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Last?

If you want to enhance your breasts without using artificial implants, you have an option. Fat transfer breast augmentation removes your fat from elsewhere in the body and injects it into the breasts. This fat will establish itself for long-lasting results.


What is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

While most breast augmentation procedures use implants, some patients prefer fat transfer breast augmentation. This procedure makes an excellent option if you want to see subtle fullness and volume enhancement without artificial materials implanted in the body. If you want to avoid the possible risks of breast implants, you can have fat transfer breast augmentation. You will not achieve quite the same results you would get with an implant, but you will see results.


How Does Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Work?

Dr. Mashhadian performs fat transfer breast augmentation in the Rodeo Surgical Art AAAHC certified surgical facility. He will use advanced liposuction techniques to harvest fat from your abdomen and thighs. After purification, this fat is injected into the breasts through small incisions. The fat will establish itself in its new location, giving your breasts a boost of volume. Fat behaves the same wherever it finds itself in your body, so the injected fat acts like it “belongs” in the breasts.


How Long Does Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Last?

The fat cells used in fat transfer breast augmentation are your own, so your body will not try to remove them. Not all injected fat cells will survive. The remaining fat cells will establish themselves and stay in place for many years. As most of us know from experience, fat cells are long-lived, so you can expect the ones in your breasts to last a long time.

If you have significant weight changes, these fat cells will change like the fat cells on the rest of your body. If you lose weight, you may lose some volume from your breasts. Gaining weight could cause your breasts to get larger and develop sagging. Maintaining a consistent weight will keep your results looking full and natural for many years to come.


How Much Volume Will I Get From Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Fat transfer breast augmentation achieves soft, natural volume enhancement. Fat cannot give you the same lift, roundness, or volume that an implant can. Improvements in volume with fat transfer breast augmentation are long-lasting and very safe, but not dramatic. Fat transfer breast augmentation can achieve this goal for those who want a natural look.


What are the Benefits of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Although fat transfer breast augmentation will not give you implant-sized volume, this procedure offers many benefits of its own. You may find that the advantages of fat transfer breast augmentation outweigh the less noticeable size increase.


No Implant Risks

If you have concerns about the safety of implants, fat transfer breast augmentation offers an alternative. You will never have to worry about an implant rupture, a reaction to the implant, or scar tissue formation.


Natural Look and Feel

If you want breasts with a completely natural look and feell, fat transfer breast augmentation makes an excellent option. The injected fat looks and feels like it has always been there. You will not feel an implant, and neither will anyone else.


No Follow-Up

Breast implants should be replaced after ten to fifteen years, and many need to be removed before this time due to capsular contracture or other problems. Once your fat cells have become established, you will not have to worry about changes or adverse reactions.


What are the Alternatives to Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Dr. Mashhadian is an expert in Scarless breast augmentation using a technique called transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA). This procedure places saline-filled implants with a minimum of tissue disruption, making it an ideal choice if you want implants with minimal risk and downtime. The implants are placed through an incision inside the belly button, making this a Scarless procedure.


What is Recovery Like From Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

You may have some swelling and soreness in your breasts for a few days. You may also have soreness and bruising in the area where you had liposuction. Most people can go back to work after a few days. Your breasts may look larger at first than they will look after settling.


Am I a Good Candidate for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

To be eligible for fat transfer breast augmentation, you will need to have enough body fat for Dr. Mashhadian to harvest it. Good candidates have no major health problems, are close to their target weight, and have reasonable expectations about the procedure. Results from fat transfer breast augmentation will not achieve the same volume enhancement as implants. However, the subtle enhancements may be exactly what you need.
