Fat grafting is commonly used to improve contour irregularities after breast reconstruction for breast cancer, but also can be used to create a modest increase in overall breast size.
Fat grafting to the breast is an attractive option for people who would like larger breasts or improved contour with or without using an implant. Using liposuction, fat is removed from areas of excess such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks and/or hips.
The harvested fat is then briefly processed and then transferred back into the breasts. The fat that remains is alive and part of your body and will change proportionately as your weight increases or decreases throughout your life cycle. An added benefit of fat grafting is a noticeable reduction of fat in stubborn areas of the body as mentioned above. There are also minimal incisions and reduced scarring in comparison to traditional breast augmentation using an implant.
