A type of plastic surgery procedure that has become increasingly popular over the past decade is fat grafting. Fat grafting, also referred to as fat transfer or fat injections, is the surgical process by which fat is transferred from one area of the body to another area. The surgical goal is to improve or augment the area where the fat is injected. Most patients are familiar with the Brazilian butt lift (BBL), a procedure that involves removing unwanted fat from the tummy, sides and back and then reinserting it into the booty to create an appealing, hourglass shape. But many patients wonder if this fat can also be re-inserted into the breasts for a fuller looking bosom.
While not all surgeons perform fat transfer to the breasts, Mia Aesthetics’ Dr. Charepoo, who works out of the Austin, Texas office, does perform this procedure. Fat transfer breast augmentation essentially uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body and inject it into your breasts. This is a breast augmentation option for women who are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size and would prefer natural results.
Fat transfer to the breasts is a relatively simple procedure, and can be performed as an add-on to a BBL, liposuction, tummy tuck, or as part of a mommy makeover. The fat transfer can also be done along with a breast lift procedure to add volume to newly lifted breasts.
