Breast augmentation with fat grafting is for individuals who may want to increase the size and/or shape of their breast, without using an implant.
Not every person will want to use implants to resize or reshape their breasts. In this procedure, one may achieve similar results using the careful injection of fat. Each person will be different, that’s why at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery we prefer to take a holistic approach. That in order to achieve the best results, our doctors will work with you to find the best way to use fat transfer to meet your goals.

During the consultation for your breast augmentation procedure, we will discuss several topics related to your potential surgery. We may discuss fat grafting versus implants, liposuction procedures, breast size, breast shape, breast projection, and or your lifestyle and activity levels.
We know that finding the right plastic surgeon for you and your breast augmentation with fat grafting surgery in DC is vital. Our doctors have decades of experience in making our patients feel comfortable and confident with the latest and most innovative practices.

There are various questions you may ask yourself and our doctors regarding fat grafting breast augmentations. This surgical procedure involves various steps before, during, and after the surgery.
If you are wondering what the difference is between a traditional breast augmentation procedure, and a fat grafting breast augmentation surgery, there are several things to note. While a traditional breast augmentation procedure will resize and reshape with a silicone or saline implant, the fat grafting breast augmentation will achieve similar results with a careful injection of fat.
During your consultation, your physician will work with you to determine how to achieve your desired look and the amount of fat necessary to meet your needs.
If you are wondering what will happen during the procedure, you may expect:
- During breast augmentation with the fat grafting procedure, repurposed fat is used to reshape and contour the breasts.
- Small, needle-sized incisions are made in discreet locations of the breasts in order to achieve the desired shape, size, and lift.
- For candidates using fat grafting, there is a dual benefit by targeting unwanted fatty deposits and using them for breast enhancement.
Combining Fat Transfer Breast Augmentations With Other Procedures in DC
You can also combine procedures, as this surgery already uses liposuction to transfer fat from unwanted sections to your breasts. Many women choose to combine this with another procedure like a tummy tuck. This is so the recovery for both of your procedures can happen at the same time.
Patients are usually allowed to fully exercise within a day or two. Scarring is minimal during this procedure, as incisions are very small. However, the healing processes may differ between individuals.
What are the benefits to a Breast Augmentation with Fat Grafting in DC
There are several benefits one may find to having a breast augmentation with fat grafting. For example, one may find that fat grafting breast augmentations can:
- Increase one’s breast symmetry
- Improves one’s breast projection
- Increase and reshapes one’s cleavage
- Targets one’s unwanted fatty deposits
- Restores one’s breast volume and shape: typically lost after aging, pregnancy, or weight loss
- There is no need to use an implant to improve the appearance
- There is minimal scarring, as the incisions are very small
- The procedure can be performed using liposuction, addressing two concerns at one time
You may be a candidate for this procedure if you:
- Are at least 18 years of age
- Are interested in modest breast enhancement
- May have a breast asymmetry
- Are not currently pregnant and or nursing
- Are in good overall health
