Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Many women with smaller or asymmetrical breasts have always wanted larger, more shapely curves, but they don’t want implants. If you would like to achieve fuller, rounder breasts that look and feel completely natural without implant surgery, fat transfer breast augmentation in Michigan may be right for you. We provide this unique breast enhancement for women to help them achieve a more feminine, curving physique.
What is fat transfer breast augmentation?
Fat transfer breast augmentation is a unique breast enhancement procedure that increases the size of the breasts by about one cup size without the use of implants as in traditional breast augmentation surgery. This breast augmentation procedure uses fat tissues that are harvested from an area of the body that a patient would like to slim and tone such as the thighs, abdomen, or other areas.
The fat is purified once it is removed, then injected into the breasts. Fat transfer augmentation enhances the breast size and shape while also achieving a slimmer, more sculpted appearance in the area where the fat was removed.
Why fat transfer breast augmentation?
Women who don’t want breast implants but would still like larger, rounder breasts can get fat transfer breast augmentation to achieve their aesthetic goals. Fat transfer breast augmentation is the perfect procedure for women who meet the following criteria:
- Want to increase breast size by one cup
- Have concerns about implants
- Do not want to have more significant incisions or scars
- Want to avoid the risk of breast implant illness or implant failure
- Have areas of the body that they would like to sculpt and slim
- Would like to improve breast symmetry
What happens during a fat transfer breast augmentation procedure?
Our fat transfer breast augmentation in Michigan begins with a detailed consultation to discuss your aesthetic concerns and goals, examine your breasts and body, and determine which area of your physique you would like to remove fat from to transfer to your breasts.
The chosen area is a place where you have enough excess fat to transfer. Common areas are the buttocks, thighs, bra roll, and abdomen. The area is slimed and sculpted as a part of your fat transfer breast augmentation procedure, leaving you with an attractive, hourglass figure.
During the surgical procedure, you will have local or general anesthesia. The fat tissue is gently removed with a liposuction technique. These fat cells are cleansed and purified to ensure only healthy, clean fat cells are used. The fat cells are then injected into your breasts to create a symmetrical, plump, rounded and very natural-looking breast shape and size. Because the augmentation is done with your own tissues, your breasts will look and feel as soft and natural as they did before, only they will be bigger and more shapely.
Recovery after fat transfer breast augmentation
Every patient’s recovery time is unique and depends on which donor sites were chosen for liposuction. After the procedure is complete, you will wear a compression bandage around the area that was liposuctioned and the also around your breasts. The compression bandage helps your body and breasts heal in their new shape, and it minimizes swelling.
Most women need about a week of downtime and rest after fat transfer breast augmentation. As swelling and pain decrease, patients can usually return to sedentary work within about 1-2 weeks. Wait for four to six weeks to resume more strenuous work or exercise.

Who is a candidate for fat transfer breast augmentation?
Women who want to enhance their breasts no more than about one cup size and prefer not to have implants are typically candidates for fat transfer breast augmentation in Detroit. Ideal candidates should meet the following qualifications:
- Are in good health
- Have not serious medical concerns such as a bleeding disorder
- Do not smoke
- Have enough unwanted fat somewhere on the body for harvesting for fat transfer
- Are not taking blood-thinning medications or supplements
- Have realistic expectations about what fat transfer breast augmentation can achieve
How long will my results last?
In the 4-6 months following your procedure, the fat cells will settle into their new position. A portion of the injected fat will be absorbed by your body. This is normal and expected, and compensated for during the surgery. However, in some cases, a follow-up procedure may be required to add more fat.
Once the fat cells have settled, they will remain in your breasts permanently. Your breast size will not change and will remain in their larger size.
