If you've ever wished you could take the fat from your hips, thighs, tummy or butt and move it to your breasts, a type of breast augmentation surgery using your own fat can accomplish that outcome. Using liposuction, our plastic surgeons can take fat cells from one area of your body and use the fat to increase your breast size and improve breast shape, without breast implants.

Your Own Fat Can Be Used for Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation using a fat graft is a completely natural, implant-free way to increase the volume and fullness of your breasts. Although saline implants or silicone implants may still be necessary if you wish to enlarge your breasts by several sizes, fat grafting has allowed many women to achieve naturally enhanced breasts and results they are ecstatic about.
The advantages of this innovative breast augmentation technique include:
- Liposuction performed on the hips, thighs, buttocks or other areas
- Naturally augmented breasts with the added benefit of liposuction
- No need for large incisions or breast implants
- Optimally natural shape and feel
- Eliminates risks associated with breast implants
Although breast augmentation with fat grafting has its own risks, the risks of breast implant rupture, capsular contracture and breast implant rotation are eliminated with the fat grafting technique.
Many women are good candidates for this type of breast augmentation. One of the main candidacy factors to discuss with our plastic surgeons is whether you have an area of excess fat that can be harvested for breast augmentation. Many women have these isolated deposits of fat removed from their tummy, thighs or hips.
How Breast Augmentation Using Fat Transfer Works
Fat is harvested from an area of your body using liposuction, purified, and then strategically injected into your breasts. One large injection is not used. Instead, a series of tiny injections of fat is distributed in various areas of the breast. These multiple small injections allow our breast surgeons to create an optimally natural breast shape, whereas a breast implant limits the amount of breast reshaping that can be accomplished.
It is normal for some of the fat cells to die after being transferred to your breast. These fat cells typically are reabsorbed into the surrounding tissues. Additional injections over time may be necessary to achieve the desired breast shape and size. The success of breast augmentation using fat grafting is highly dependent on the breast surgeon's technique. Technique plays an important role in this type of breast augmentation, from harvesting, to purification, to injection of the fat cells.
