Fat transfer breast augmentation is a procedure that enhances the shape, size, and proportions of a woman’s breasts using your body’s own fat.
Many women are left wanting what nature never fully gave them or wanting back what time and often motherhood has taken away. For many women, breast augmentation using implants is the right solution. For others, particularly those who desire an all natural solution, fat transfer breast augmentation offers a viable alternative to breast implants.
Through the special skill and experience of Dr. Larry Fan, you can enhance the shape and size of your breasts and enjoy a natural look and feel without having implants.
The Natural Solution for Breast Enlargement
Fat transfer breast augmentation offers a more natural alternative to breast implants and allows you to enhance the shape and size of your breasts while simultaneously slimming areas of the body that have excess fat. Additionally, there is no risk of implant deflation or leakage when fat transfer breast augmentation is chosen.
Fat transfer breast augmentation can help you achieve fuller, more shapely breasts, while also slimming down areas with excess fat.
Fat transfer breast augmentation is best suited for women who:

During fat transfer breast augmentation, fat is removed from another part of the body using gentle liposuction. The harvested fat is carefully purified to remove impurities and concentrate stem cells. Finally, the purified fat is meticulously injected in multiple layers as hundreds of tiny individual pearls called “microfat” grafts into your breasts. By placing them close to a blood supply, the harvested fat cells are more likely to survive and not be reabsorbed by the body.
Fat is harvested using a gentle form of liposuction from the stomach, love handles, thighs, and/or wherever there is fat to spare. Even thin patients can do well with this procedure. The fat then grows within a matrix of tissue, and the breasts enlarge naturally while the benefits of liposuction are also enjoyed.
Fat Transfer is a Natural Alternative to Breast Implants
This procedure may take longer than traditional breast augmentation since it involves the harvesting and preparation of delicate fatty tissues.
Dr. Fan may recommend the use of a special vacuum brassiere called the Brava device before and after surgery to optimize results.
Fat transfer breast augmentation can help you achieve fuller and more shapely breasts while also helping you slim down areas with excess fat, but it is important to understand a few limitations of the procedure:
Fat transfer breast augmentation can be performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia.
What to Expect After Surgery*
Fat transfer breast augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure, and recovery is often easier than breast augmentation using implants.
Patients undergoing fat transfer breast augmentation should expect some degree of postoperative swelling, bruising, and soreness of the affected areas. Bruising and a significant amount of swelling typically resolve after 2-4 weeks, though minor swelling will persist for several weeks longer.
Discomfort is controlled with pain medication. Many patients find they can switch to over the counter pain relievers after the first few days. A special surgical bra and body compression garment are worn for a few weeks to support the affected areas and help speed up your recovery.
Strenuous activities and those that can cause strain on the breasts should be avoided for four to six weeks after fat transfer breast augmentation surgery. Most patients are able to return to normal activities a few days after the procedure. Time off work for most patients is three to seven days.
Your new breasts will take a few months to “settle down” into final size and shape.
The Goal of Breast Augmentation Should Be the Prettiest Breasts Possible
This may sound obvious, yet for most plastic surgeons it is rarely the aim. Often, there is no stated goal, or if there is one, it resolves around a certain cup size, regardless of how it looks on you.
Fat transfer breast augmentation is a delicate, advanced, cutting edge procedure that requires a high degree of skill, precision, and experience. You only have one body, and you should only entrust it to a board certified plastic surgeon with the highest degree of knowledge, skill, and experience.
The cost for fat transfer breast augmentation varies from person to person depending on the length and complexity of the procedure needed. The cost for surgery may range from $10,000 to $40,000.

Fat transfer breast augmentation can usually enlarge up to one cup size per surgery. Enlargement beyond one cup size will often require additional procedures.
The beauty of fat transfer breast augmentation is that the augmentation is created with your own living tissue. For fat transfer breast augmentation, fat is most commonly harvested from your abdomen, flanks, or thighs.
The procedure generally takes three to five hours. Since the fat is meticulously harvested from the body, purified while protecting the living tissue, and then finally layered in the breast, the process is slow.
Fat transfer is generally considered safe because it involves your body’s own tissue. As with all surgeries, there is a small risk of complications such as bleeding, infection, scarring, adverse reaction to anesthesia, numbness, fat necrosis, and lumps. There is also a small possibility of an additional procedure being needed, should not enough fat tissue survive to reach the goal size.
