Am I a Good Candidate for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

April 17, 2022

A breast augmentation with fat transfer is a surgical procedure that reshapes your breasts into the shape and size you desire by using your body’s own fat. Fat transfer breast augmentations have surged in popularity, particularly among women who want natural looking results and a modest enhancement in size.

The procedure is simple: use liposuction to harvest fat from one area of the body, such as the stomach or thighs, purify the fat, and re-inject the fat into specific locations on the breast. The results appear natural. It has the added benefit of reducing the size of other parts of your body, like your tummy, love handles, or thighs, using liposuction.

Ideal candidates for breast augmentation with fat transfer:

1) Have enough fat deposits to transfer to the breast

You should have sufficient excess fat in other regions of the body to harvest for the procedure. Very lean patients may not have enough available fat to achieve a great result.

2) Should NOT have significant drooping of the breasts

If your nipple sits below the fold of your breasts, you may not be a candidate for fat transfer. If you have significant excess skin, then a breast lift may be required. For many candidates, a breast lift can be combined with fat transfer to help transform the shape of your breasts.

3) Desire a modest increase in breast size

Women who have realistic expectations with a requirement for subtle results rather than dramatic ones that implants offer are ideal candidates for fat transfer breast augmentation. The results are incredibly soft and natural – as it is your natural fat.

4) Are in good overall health

Candidates for this procedure are at or near their healthy weight, are not pregnant or breastfeeding and have no serious illness or disease.
