Breast Augmentation with Fat Grafting
What is natural breast augmentation with fat grafting?
Breast augmentation with fat grafting is a surgical procedure done to enhance the size, shape and volume of the breasts, and/or correct asymmetry. Using liposuction in other parts of the body, Dr. Rojas will harvest the fat and transfer it to the breasts, creating a naturally enhanced look that will compliment your frame and boost your confidence. The patient will only see an increase of one cup size with fat grafting.
Who is a good candidate for breast augmentation with fat grafting?
Any woman wanting to improve the size, shape and volume of the breasts with a more naturally enhanced look, without the insertion of implants, is a candidate for natural breast augmentation with fat grafting. The increase in volume is limited to approximately one cup size using fat transfer.
How is natural breast augmentation with fat grafting performed?
- Expectations after your surgery with Dr. Rojas will include carefully monitoring your progress postoperatively at your follow up appointments. Patients will be given a prescription for pain medications, antibiotics and other vitamins which will help with the recovery process. You will wake up from the procedure in a recovery suite wearing a surgical bra and compression garment. Our amazing staff will monitor you postoperatively until you are ready to be picked up by a family member or friend.
- Natural breast augmentations with fat grafting are common procedures, but every surgery has its risks. Swelling, bruising and tenderness are expected postoperatively, especially in areas of liposuction. Compression garments and lymphatic massages after liposuction are highly recommended to decrease swelling and fibrosis. Risks include some asymmetry, delayed wound healing, seromas and hypertrophic/keloid scarring. Postoperative follow up appointments will be important to reduce the risk of longer recovery time or developing complications, as well as monitoring your progress.
