The Fat Transfer Breast Augmenation Process

The first step of the process is a consultation. If you are considering fat transfer breast augmentation Seattle plastic surgeon Dr. Hakim Said will meet with you to learn about your cosmetic goals. He takes the time to answer all your questions.

While providing information on breast fat transfer he may also discuss breast implant alternatives and the liposuction process. This informative consultation comes with no obligation to pursue surgery. After listening to your needs, he examines the area that you wish to have fat removed. Fat transfer is not suitable for everyone. There must be enough fat to gather. Extremely thin patients may be better candidates for breast implants, but most people carry some fat they are willing to remove.

Your skin must also have adequate elasticity or room within the breast for the fat to fit comfortably. Tight skin compresses the fat grafts, which can compromise your final result. Dr. Said has over a decade of experience and can help you decide whether fat transfer breast augmentation is the correct approach for you. After discussing your options, Dr. Said creates a surgical plan that is personalized to your goals.

Your Seattle Breast Fat Transfer Procedure

Dr. Said provides instructions to prepare you for surgery day. On the day of surgery, Dr. Said will meet with you to answer any last-minute questions. He will place markings on your skin with a special marker. This helps to guide the procedure for a great cosmetic result.

Once you are fully prepared, Dr. Said begins the liposuction portion of the procedure. A tiny incision is made to allow the liposuction probe to enter the skin. This cannula removes the fat gently using a low-pressure suction at the desired location. The area is left noticeably slimmer. Next, the fat is prepared for injection. It is separated and cleaned until it is ready for injection.

The purified fat is passed into small syringes. Dr. Said carefully injects the fat into the breasts using multiple injection sites to distribute it evenly, droplet by droplet, to move you toward your goal size and shape. Once the fat transfer is complete, a protective bandage is placed on the skin. Patients go home that same day. You will need someone to drive you home following the procedure, as you will be unable to drive.

What to Expect During Breast Fat Transfer Recovery

The recovery depends on the extent of your surgery. Long lasting anesthetic medication is used so most patients have minimal discomfort after surgery. When that wears off, patients feel somewhat bruised and sore for several weeks before bouncing back.

You may be asked to take one to two weeks off of work. You can start driving when you feel confident that you have a full range of motion. Do not drive while taking prescription pain medications that cause drowsiness. Please avoid heavy lifting and wait at least six weeks before resuming exercise. Short walks are recommended, starting as early as the day of surgery. Most of the discomfort occurs within the first three days, and the local anesthetic helps to block that.

Dr. Said will provide you with specific post-procedure instructions to optimize your recovery and minimize the chance of complications. Swelling after cosmetic surgery is normal. You may be asked to wear compression garments to reduce swelling and promote skin retraction after liposuction, which is part of the breast fat transfer process. Bruising may occasionally occur. Bruises take approximately two weeks to fade.

Your Seattle Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Results

A fat transfer breast augmentation provides a natural look and feel compared to breast implants. While your breasts may look immediately fuller, this is not your final result because it is accompanied by early swelling.

The fat graft is a living tissue, and around half of the transferred fat will survive. Any fat cells that do not survive are broken down and absorbed by your body over time weeks to months. Because of that process, it takes 3 to 12 months to see the final results of your procedure. The fat that remains at this stage is permanent unless you gain or lose weight. Unlike breast implants, fat grafting never needs to be replaced.
