Breast fat grafting is used for women who want to simultaneously achieve natural breast enhancement and a slimmer body. Fat grafting is also used during reconstructive breast surgery, allowing women to use fat taken from other areas of the body to form beautiful, natural-looking breasts.
Breast fat grafting does not allow women to achieve the same dramatic results as breast augmentation. However, breast fat grafts do allow women to achieve natural, healthy-looking, well-shaped breasts. Fat grafting offers subtle enhancement to the breasts and reduces excess body fat through the latest liposuction procedures.
Women who choose natural fat grafting rather than breast augmentation don’t have to worry about the risks associated with breast implants, such as implant rupture or deflation.
At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery of Maryland in Baltimore, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Salman Ashruf uses innovative fat grafting techniques, combined with his extensive cosmetic surgical knowledge and high definition Brazilian cosmetic applications to produce naturally supple, full breasts.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Fat Grafting?
Candidates for breast fat grafting include women who:
- Have excess fat in certain body areas that they wish to remove
- Are interested in liposuction to remove excess body fat
- Desire subtle breast enhancement
- Would like to use body fat to reconstruct breasts following trauma or mastectomy
Dr. Ashruf reviews your medical history during your initial consultation, and may recommend natural breast augmentation using fat grafting.
What Can I Expect From a Breast Fat Grafting Procedure?
This minimally-invasive procedure allows women to achieve natural breast enhancement without the need for invasive surgical methods like breast augmentation. Dr. Ashruf uses local anesthesia for both the liposuction and fat injection procedures. Once fat from the liposuction has been harvested, it is then refined and injected in various areas and depths around the breasts.
Patients may experience some bruising, swelling, and pain at the procedure sites, and are encouraged to take off several days from work. Extensive fat grafting used for reconstructive surgery typically requires a longer recovery period, but women who have elected fat grafting for cosmetic purposes are generally able to get back to their normal routines two to three weeks following the procedure. Heavy lifting or vigorous activities should be avoided for at least four weeks following the procedure.
