Fat Transfer to The Breast
With advances in cosmetic surgery come new and more efficient ways to improve certain aspects of the body. For women who desire an increase in breast size, breast augmentation using breast implants was the best option. But thanks to the fat transfer technique, there is a new option that can help women achieve their ideal breast size without having to insert foreign implants in their breasts.
Fat Transfer to The Breast
Fat transfer to the breast is a breast augmentation technique designed for women looking for a small increase in their cup size. Not only does it give more natural-looking results, it essentially uses fat from other parts of the body, which is then injected into your breasts. Many people choose to take fat from their problem areas such as the back, abdomen, thighs, and arms. This procedure is often chosen by women looking to have their breasts enhanced through a more natural method that does not involve saline or silicone implants.
Preparing for the Procedure
Before the actual procedure, it is best to discuss your past medical history with Dr. Wotowic during your initial consultation. This will help your him in creating a customized plan for your surgery. This plan will give you an idea of what to expect during the procedure and how your breasts will look. Dr. Wotowic will discuss the fat harvesting sites, where the incisions will be made, and what results you can expect.
Recovery and Results
The recovery from this procedure is based purely on the number of donor sites used to harvest the fat needed. There may be slight bruising and swelling for a few days after the procedure, but these issues are temporary and will subside. Though there may be minor swelling for a few months, you will be able to go back to work after a week of the procedure. Heavy exercise and excess pressure should be avoided for a couple of weeks.
This procedure can help in increasing the cup size of the breast by around one cup. Since your own fat is used to perform the procedure, the results appear much more natural.
“I have been a patient of Dr. Wotowic’s for over 15 years for both reconstructive and cosmetic concerns. Prior to every procedure, I have been completely and thoroughly informed about my diagnosis and all available treatments. His thorough and relaxed manner allowed me to completely understand all aspects of the operative sequence. Most importantly, I felt my detailed concerns were heard and, ultimately, my expectations were met if not exceeded. He is a master of his craft, a gifted diagnostician, and a gifted surgeon. I recommend him with enthusiasm and without any reservation.”

Benefits of the Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Technique
In addition to the natural look and feel of the breasts after the fat transfer technique, there are also a number of other advantages to undergoing a fat transfer breast augmentation when compared to a traditional breast implant surgery.
Since we use your own natural fat instead of saline or silicone breast implants, this breast augmentation technique poses very little risk for complications. Taking fat from one area of the body will also help slim down problem areas that are prone to accumulating excess fat. In addition to gaining larger breasts, you will also end improving the contours of your body as a whole.
While a traditional breast augmentation requires incisions, the minimally invasive nature of the fat transfer technique will limit any scars. This allows you to have the breasts you want without having to worry about keeping any marks hidden. The procedure is permanent and long-lasting, whereas implants may need replacement after some time.
