What is Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer?

A fat transfer breast augmentation utilizes fat from the patient’s own body to enlarge their breasts. Various areas of the body, such as the flanks, abdomen, thighs, and knees, can serve as donor sites for fat extraction. Once the fat is harvested, it is then purified and prepared for injection. As with any other Maryland fat grafting procedures, the added benefit of breast augmentation with fat grafting is a slimming effect on the donor regions.

How is this procedure performed?

The fat transfer procedure in Maryland with Dr. Cappuccino involves multiple steps. Before anything, the ideal donor sites need to be chosen based on the patient’s physiology. These are usually the abdomen, thighs, and flanks (love handles). A specialized liposuction technique known as PAL (Power Assisted Liposuction) is used to carry out this part of the procedure. This system is designed to extract fat cells in a manner that is safe, ensuring that the cells will be undamaged and viable for use. The fat is also purified so that only healthy cells are used in the injections. 

The second step of the fat grafting process involves injecting tiny quantities of fat into the breast with a cannula, a tiny hollow needle. The fat is injected into the existing fatty tissue in the breast so it can flourish in the new location for natural breast enlargement.

Fat transfers to enhance breast implants

While this treatment is often seen as an alternative to traditional breast augmentation, some women undergo in Maryland a fat transfer breast augmentation as a complement to implants while working with Dr. Cappuccino. Thinner breast implant patients can benefit from added fat in the breasts, as they make them appear more natural. Breast augmentation with fat transfer is also a good choice for women undergoing breast reconstruction following a mastectomy. 

What is the recovery process like?

During the recovery period from this procedure, it is normal for patients to experience some slight bruising and swelling. These effects will wear off quickly, and patients will be able to get back to work within 7 to 10 days. However, patients should wait several weeks before engaging in more strenuous activity. Once the swelling has fully dissipated, patients will be able to enjoy their fuller, plumper breasts, which look and feel incredibly natural.
