Some patients go through surgery without understanding the procedure, itself. Keep in mind that it is significant to be aware of the intervention so that you will know the results to be expected after the surgery has been performed. It is also important to have a discussion between the surgeon and the patient. In this way, the surgeon could clarify the patient’s misconceptions regarding the procedure. Aside from it, it will prevent the patient to create unrealistic expectations. Talking about breast enhancement, every patient should be aware that fat transfer can be done to achieve the desired results.
Fat transfer has taken the plastic surgery field by storm. I use fat transfer to augment different areas of the body, including the hips in the hourglass hip procedure and the buttocks in the hourglass buttock augmentation procedure. However, some patients are requesting a fat transfer to the breasts. This is another procedure that can be performed to enhance your breasts. Fat is harvested from the abdomen, flanks, sides, back, or any area where you have excess fat, and then the fat is injected into the breasts. You can use fat transfer for primary breast augmentation, meaning you have not had any other breast procedures and you just want to use fat instead of an implant for an augmentation. I prefer using an implant rather than fat for this type of situation.
However, I have found breast fat transfer to be very useful in revision breast surgery. A revision breast surgery is done because the breast volume has been altered significantly by the pressure of the implant on the breast itself. Fat transfer is certainly something that I consider in my cosmetic practice. I do not recommend it for just breast augmentation, but as an add-on, a procedure to enhance your breasts in secondary breast surgeries.
