Breast fat transfer provides natural-looking enhancements to the bust using your own fat rather than silicone or saline implants. Also referred to as fat grafting or autologous breast augmentation, this procedure involves transferring fat from one area of your body to another via a combination of liposuction and injections. This creates fuller and more shapely breasts without the risks associated with implants.
If you are considering a fat transfer breast augmentation at Cosmos Aesthetics Canberra, the next step is a consultation with one of our highly skilled doctors. Together, you will discuss your goals and expectations, and design a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

Unwanted fat is removed from donor sites and transferred to the breasts to provide double the benefits in one procedure
Fat grafting involves taking fatty tissue from one part of your body and redistributing it to another. Excess fat is removed from areas where it is unwanted, such as the abdomen or hips, using liposuction. Once it has been collected, it is processed in a centrifuge to prepare it for reinjection. The purified fat is then used to sculpt areas of the breasts that are deficient in volume, asymmetrical or lacking an attractive, youthful shape.
The doctors at Cosmos Aesthetics are advanced users of Vaser liposuction technology. This revolutionary method of liposuction utilises high-energy ultrasound to break down stubborn fat and make the removal process easier. This allows for more even removal of fat than with traditional liposuction while shortening downtime and improving patient comfort.
Vaser liposuction has also been shown to increase collagen production, leading to 54% more skin tightening than traditional liposuction techniques. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, Vaser liposuction delivers smooth, beautiful and long-lasting results for our breast fat transfer patients.
On the day of your surgery, twilight sedation will be used to promote rapid recovery. You may opt for general anaesthesia if preferred. Your doctor will be able to enlarge your bust size by one or two cup sizes during the operation. If you would like more volume, the breast fat transfer procedure can be repeated in three to six months.
How much will my breast fat transfer procedure cost in Canberra?
As a general guide, fat transfer breast augmentation patients can expect their procedure to cost around $8,000 for liposuction performed on one area and fat transfer to the breast. A consultation at Cosmos Aesthetics ranges from $120 – $330.
The cost of your procedure can be broken down into three primary components:
Doctor’s fees: This fee is charged by your Cosmos Aesthetics doctor to perform the surgery. The amount will be calculated based on various factors, including your body type, your goals, the chosen fat donor sites and the anticipated length of your surgery.
Anaesthetist’s fees: This fee is charged by your anaesthetist to administer medications during the procedure. The amount depends on the anaesthetist’s qualifications and experience, as well as the type of anaesthesia. Expect higher costs if you choose to undergo your procedure with general anaesthesia.
Hospital fees: This fee covers the use of hospital facilities. It typically includes the time spent in the operating theatre plus any time needed to recover from anaesthesia.

What to expect as you recover from your breast fat transfer procedure
Most patients can return home after their breast fat transfer procedure. Your Cosmos Aesthetics doctor will provide you with a detailed recovery plan. Please follow it closely to ensure that your recovery is healthy and comfortable. It is normal to experience some pain and swelling after your surgery. Discomfort can be managed with prescribed pain medication, and swelling will reduce within the weeks after your procedure.
Our breast fat transfer patients enjoy minimal downtime. You may be able to return to work or other gentle daily activities after approximately two to five days. However, you must avoid strenuous exercise and sports and heavy or overhead lifting for about a month.
Wearing appropriate garments is a critical component of breast fat transfer recovery. You will be instructed to wear a post-operative bra to help support your breasts and avoid underwire bras for about six weeks. Additionally, you will need to wear a compression garment over the liposuction areas. This garment will be worn for about three weeks full-time, followed by three weeks part-time.
Your breasts will look fuller right away. In fact, they may look larger than you intended, but this is an expected part of the breast fat transfer process. Your breasts will reduce in size slightly as only about 80% of the transferred fat cells will survive. Your doctor will inject extra fat during the procedure to account for this. You will be able to see your final results within six months.
