Breast Augmentation With Fat Grafting, before and afterBreast augmentation procedures are among the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the world. Most of these augmentations are done using breast implants, but there’s another option that compliments your natural breast shape and treats stubborn areas of fat at the same time.

Fat transfer breast augmentations take unwanted fat from other areas of your body and use it to increase the size of your breasts without the use of implants. This approach results in a more subtle, natural looking result.

Here’s a step by step guide to getting a fat transfer breast augmentation in Washington, DC:

1. Have a consultation with your plastic surgeon

Having a consultation with your physician is vital to any cosmetic procedure process. Not only will it give you the opportunity to discuss your concerns and goals, it also allows your doctor to examine your current situation and determine the right plan of action.

During this consultation, you will discuss the difference between breast augmentation using implants and breast augmentation using fat grafting to ensure your doctor can reach your desired outcome appropriately. You will discuss your current breast shape, projection, and size and how you would like to see each factor change.

Your doctor will also explain liposuction and how it will be used during your procedure. You will discuss your target areas for fat removal, skin elasticity, current lifestyle and activity levels, and the difference between traditional tumescent liposuction and power-assisted liposuction.

2. Get the best liposuction in Washington, DC

In order to harvest the fat needed for your breast augmentation, your doctor will first need to perform liposuction. Your problem areas will be shaped and contoured with the wave of our magic sculpting wand.

This magic wand removes fat through suction, utilizing a thin metal tube that is worked into the layer of fat just below the skin. After the fat is removed, it will be harvested and processed for reuse.

3. Breast fat transfer in DC

Once the fat has been properly prepared for insertion, the doctor will inject it into the various layers of tissue within the breast using a special syringe. Your doctor will be able to customize the size and shape of your breast depending on the amount of fat harvested.

Your doctor will insert more fat than the goal amount because you will likely lose 1/3 to 1/4 of the fat during the healing process. Overfilling the breast will ensure your desired outcome.

4. Recovery from a breast fat transfer in Washington, DC

Recovery from a fat transfer breast augmentation is different from breast implant augmentation recovery. Because a fat transfer procedure is minimally invasive, recovery time is shorter and you can return to your normal activities sooner.

Your body does not have to adjust to a foreign object in the body or try to heal larger incisions, as you may experience with implant augmentation. You will experience bruising and swelling both in the breasts and at the liposuction site, but this will go away within 1-2 weeks.

5. DC fat transfer breast augmentation results

Both fat grafting and implant augmentations take time for the final result to develop. Fat transfer breast augmentations take up to 3 months to see the end results because the body gradually reabsorbs some of the fat injected into it. Breast implants can take up to 6 months for the implant to be fully settled.

The results from a fat transfer procedure will look and feel more natural. Because you are not inserting an implant, the shape and projection of your breast may not change drastically. Your breasts will heal to look “naturally bigger”.
