Breast Fat Transfer

The Basics

Breast Fat Transfer is a cosmetic surgery characterised by the use of your own fat (in place of breast implants) to increase breast size and breast volume. A fat transfer breast augmentation can effectively enhance the look of breasts by providing a modest increase in size and a natural breast lift.

The Benefits

An alternative to implants for a 1-2 cup increase in breast size. Safe, natural non-allergenic procedure that utilises an autologous fat transfer technique. Available at our Sydney, Gold Coast and Adelaide clinics.

Top Breast Fat Transfer Questions

What is Breast Fat Transfer?

Breast fat transfer, also called autologous fat transplantation (to the breasts), is a surgical procedure that plumps up a patient’s breasts  using their own, naturally-occurring fat. This treatment is an alternative to breast implants and gives a subtle, 1-2 cup size increase in breast size (* Results may vary from patient to patient). Fat transfer to the breast is a safe, natural, non-allergenic procedure; and because it uses your own fat cells, you can never have an allergic reaction. The Japanese have been successfully using the Fat Transfer method for over 20 years in various plastic surgery cases such as these breast enhancements. Fat transfer procedures will be offered at our Gold Coast and Adelaide clinics using the BodyJet. During the procedure, excess fat can be removed via Liposuction from your thighs, hips, flanks, back or tummy. This fat will then be transferred to the breast for a beautiful improvement in size and shape. The success of the breast augmentation (with fat injections) will depend on how gently the fat tissue is transferred from the tummy/thighs to the breast. It is important to note that not all the fat cells injected into the breast survive the transfer process.  The Bodyjet liposuction technique removes fat more gently than traditional liposuction so that about 80%1 of the fat cells survive the transfer into the breast tissue. This makes the Bodyjet liposuction technique the best way to transfer body fat into the breast. With traditional liposuction, less than 50% of fat cells survived the transfer (* Results may vary from patient to patient). With this breast surgery, the breasts can be enlarged by one to two cup size with a fat transfer. If you are wanting a larger increase, it would be advised to get natural-looking breast silicone implants or having multiple sessions of fat transfer to the breast spaced 3-6 months apart.

The Procedure. What does it involve?

On the day of your fat transfer procedure, patients are given twilight sedation – which eliminates the need for general anaesthesia and its associated adverse effects.1 Bodyjet Liposuction is then used to remove fat from the area of your choosing. The fat is then purified and the healthy fat cells are separated. These healthy fat cells are then re-injected into your breasts. Different amounts of fat may be injected into each breast to even out any size differences (breast asymmetry) already present. The length of the procedure will vary depending on the amount of fat required and extracted via liposuction. Both procedures can be performed on the same sitting. Fat transfers have also become popular in the Buttocks region – for a procedure known as the Brazilian Butt Lift.
