The fat-graft transfer approach augments the size and corrects contour defects of the breast hemisphere with grafts of autologous adipocyte fat tissue, drawn from the woman’s body. In a breast reconstruction procedure, within a multi-stage reconstruction-mammoplasty, a tissue expander (a temporary breast-implant device) is placed and used to prepare (shape and enlarge) the recipient site (implant-pocket) to receive and accommodate the breast implant prosthesis.

Breast Augmentation with Fat Injection

Breasts can be enlarged by two methods; by breast implants or by injecting the patient’s own fat in the breast tissue. Since breast transplants are alien material which are synthetic in nature, breast augmentation by the breast implant method involves more risk that augmentation by fat injection since the fat is harvested from the same person.

This new technique of grafting fat by removal of fat from the same person who needs breast augmentation has been developed and practiced since a long time and now is a tried and tested method.

 Fat that is injected is natural and causes no reaction or adverse effect since it is from the body of the same patient.

  • Removal of fat from the part of the body where there is excess fat shapes up that part and makes it look better.

 Fat is injected in such a manner and in such quantities that it gives a better shape and size to the breasts.

 There are hardly any incisions in this surgical procedure which minimizes the possibility of ungainly scars.
