Fat transfer breast augmentation is the best alternative for women who don’t want silicone implants. It is a more natural and ideal option for women who wish for a minimal increase in their breast size, and have extra fat in their other body parts. Those that want a more significant increase in the size of their breast should opt for silicone breast implants.
So, fat transfer breast augmentation has lots of advantages that include the use of your own fat to fill up your breasts, there are no incisions only needles are used, low maintenance, and a smaller downtime. In the case of silicone transplants, you will need to replace your transplants after some time.

In fat transfer breast augmentation, there are two main procedures that are done at the same time; the harvesting of fat cells or harvesting and grafting of prepared fat cells in the breast. In fat preparation, impurities are removed and only pure fat cells are kept.
In your initial consultation with your surgeon, he will inspect the anatomy and contours and discuss the possible outcomes. Areas from which fat can be harvested include outer and inner thighs, abdomen, and love handle. This will also improve the contouring of your body.
Harvesting of fat is done by either liposuction with small needles or aspiration depending on your surgeon’s preference. Aspiration results in more grafted fat as compared to suction. The fat grafting process is very delicate and needs a lot of technique and finesse for careful threading of cells in multiple breast planes to ensure the best fat transfer results.
An ideal candidate for the procedure should have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 25 or less, normal mammogram results, and no history of breast cancer or another disease.
Using the fat transfer to augment the size of the breasts has lots of advantages.
As this process involves your own body fat, it is 100% safe and has no risks, unlike silicone implants which result in a lot of complications.
This process gives a more natural look to breasts while also improving the look and feel of the breasts.
Breast prostheses may result in lots of complications and these can be easily eliminated by using fat transfer techniques. These complications include infections, capsule formation that might be very painful and visible, as well as implant failure.
When fat cells develop blood vessels, they produce some proteins which improve the health, texture, and flexibility of the breasts.
Medical science has lots of innovations in cosmetic surgery, but when comparing breast augmentation with fat or silicone implants, fat grafting causes very minimal scars that are not very visible.
Besides maintaining a healthy lifestyle, patients don’t need to worry about implant replacement surgery or breaking.
Patients can have fat removed from unwanted body parts and give volume to their breasts at the same time.
