How is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Performed?
Fat grafting involves two steps. For the first step, liposuction is used to harvest fat from an area of your body, such as the hips or abdomen. The fat is processed and purified before being loaded into a syringe. The second step involves injecting the fat into the breasts. Dr. Pratt makes several injections, each of which implant a specific amount of fat into the area. Using this technique, he is able to carefully sculpt the breast to the optimum shape and size.
How Do I Prepare for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
You should learn more about the procedure as well as the surgeon’s experience with the technique. A consultation with Dr. Pratt is your opportunity to find out how the procedure improves breast shape and produces excellent results.
What is Recovery Like After Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
If fat transfer breast augmentation is performed as a standalone procedure, the recovery is minimal. The incision that is used for the liposuction is small enough to not require incisions, but you may have some tenderness, bruising and swelling. Your breasts may feel tight and tender for a few weeks.
