What is breast augmentation with fat transfer?
- Posted on: Feb 15 2022
Many women who come into the office of Dr. Kimberly Carpin looking for ways to enhance their breasts may feel as though their only option for breast augmentation is the placement of breast implants. With continued advances in cosmetic medicine and surgery, women now have other solutions to consider when looking to add volume and size to their breasts. Webster, TX patients who speak with Dr. Kimberly Carpin will discover that certain treatments, such as breast augmentation with fat transfer, can also help them increase their breast size with minimal scarring.
How does breast augmentation with fat transfer work?
Dr. Kimberly Carpin describes breast augmentation with fat transfer as a way of removing unwanted fat from one area of the body, such as the arms, thighs, or tummy area, and then injecting that fat into the breasts. It allows patients to address more than one area of the body, while avoiding the large scarring that results from the placement of silicone or saline breast implants. Because the fat is harvested from the patient, there is no chance of allergic reaction with this fat grafting technique.
Who is a good candidate for this procedure?
Women over the age of 18, are non-smokers, and are in good overall health—and within their ideal weight range—may be suitable for this procedure. We encourage women interested in fat transfer for breast augmentation to learn about all the options available to them to ensure an educated decision is made.
How does the procedure work?
The procedure is performed within just a few hours at our practice. Liposuction occurs first to remove unwanted fat from a trouble spot on the body. The fat is processed and purified before Dr. Kimberly Carpin injects it into the breasts. The amount of fat used will vary depending on the size of breasts the patient desires. Fat is easily distributed to ensure smooth and proportioned final results.
