Fat Transfer to Breast is a natural alternative to traditional breast implants. It involves harvesting fat from other parts of the body and injecting it into the breasts for a more natural look and feel. Fat transfer can help correct asymmetry or irregularities in the breast shape.
Fat transfer to Breast Techniques
Liposuction is used to harvest fat from donor areas, typically areas with excess fat like the abdomen, thighs, flanks, or buttocks. The fat is collected using a gentle liposuction technique. The harvested fat is processed to remove impurities, blood, and excess fluids, leaving behind purified fat cells. The purified fat is carefully injected into the breast tissue through small incisions. Dr. Rammos uses specialized techniques to ensure the fat is distributed evenly and in multiple layers for optimal results.
Recovering from Fat Transfer to Breast SurgeryCommon symptoms after having a breast augmentation include:
You will have a compression bra that you will be required to wear to minimize swelling and support your new breasts. There will be dressings or bandages placed over the incision sites and donor areas (where the fat was harvested) will need to be kept clean and dry. In some cases, your surgeon may place drainage tubes to remove excess fluid. These will be removed during a follow-up visit.
While light walking is encouraged to promote blood circulation, you should avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and vigorous exercise for the first 4-6 weeks. The final results of fat transfer to the breasts may take several months to become fully visible, as some of the transferred fat may be reabsorbed by the body.
