Home » Breast » Breast Fat Grafting

Introducing breast fat grafting, a procedure offered by Dr. Karan Mehta, our renowned board-certified plastic surgeon in Manhattan. This innovative technique utilizes the patient’s fat to achieve a natural-looking breast enhancement, offering women a subtle way to increase their breast size without needing implants.

Augment Your Breasts Without Implants

Breast fat grafting allows women to enhance their breast size without implants. This technique involves harvesting excess fat from other body areas, such as the abdomen or thighs, and transferring it to the breasts to increase volume and achieve a more balanced shape. Breast fat grafting adds volume and enhances the overall contour and feel of the breasts. Unlike traditional implants, fat grafting offers a subtle enhancement while utilizing the patient’s tissue, providing a more harmonious outcome.

Breast Fat Grafting Corrects:

  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Loss of breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss
  • Breast deformities or irregularities
  • Mild breast sagging
  • Lack of fullness in the upper portion of the breasts
  • Breast size and shape discrepancies
  • Congenital breast abnormalities
  • Uneven distribution of breast tissue
  • Improper breast contour

Key Benefits of Breast Grafting

100% Natural
Breast fat grafting offers a 100% natural solution for breast enhancement. By utilizing the patient’s own fat cells, the procedure ensures no foreign materials or implants are introduced into the body. The result is a more organic and authentic outcome that seamlessly integrates with the existing breast tissue, providing a natural look and feel.

No Implant, No Complications
One of the major advantages is the absence of implants, which eliminates the associated risks and complications. Without artificial devices, there is no risk of implant rupture, capsular contracture, or implant-related issues. This minimizes the chances of post-operative complications, providing women with a safer and worry-free breast augmentation option.

Additional Body Contouring
Beyond enhancing breast size, breast fat grafting offers the added benefit of body contouring. During the procedure, excess fat is harvested from donor areas, allowing for targeted sculpting and shaping. This means that in addition to achieving the desired breast size and shape, patients can enjoy the bonus of improved body proportions and a more balanced figure.

Minimal Scarring
Breast fat grafting is known for its ability to minimize scarring. The procedure utilizes small incisions for fat extraction and grafting, resulting in discreet scars that are easily concealed. Compared to traditional breast augmentation, where larger incisions are often required, the minimal scarring associated with fat grafting ensures a quicker recovery period.

Candidates for Breast Fat Grafting:

  • Women seeking a subtle increase in breast size
  • Individuals with asymmetrical breasts
  • Those desiring a more natural and authentic breast augmentation
  • Women who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy or weight loss
  • Those looking for additional body contouring while enhancing their breasts
  • Patients who prefer a minimally invasive procedure with minimal scarring
  • Individuals who want to avoid the potential complications associated with breast implants
  • Women who desire a personalized and tailored approach to breast enhancement

The Recovery Process

After breast fat grafting, allow your body time to heal and recover. You may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas. Dr. Mehta will provide specific post-operative instructions, including wearing a supportive bra and avoiding strenuous activities for a certain period. Follow these guidelines to ensure proper healing. Regular follow-ups will be scheduled to monitor your progress and address any concerns. With patience and proper care, you can expect a smooth recovery and enjoy the long-lasting benefits of your procedure.

Breast Fat Grafting Surgical Details

During breast fat grafting, Dr. Mehta will begin by performing liposuction to harvest excess fat from donor areas, such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. The fat is carefully collected using a gentle suction technique. Next, the harvested fat is processed to remove any impurities or excess fluids. The purified fat is meticulously injected into the breasts and strategically placed to achieve the desired volume and contour.

To ensure optimal results, Dr. Mehta will carefully sculpt and shape the breasts using the transferred fat. This allows for a customized approach tailored to your unique body shape and desired outcome. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility to ensure comfort and safety. The length of the surgery can vary depending on the extent of the fat grafting required, but it typically takes a few hours.
