What Is Breast Fat Grafting?

Breast fat grafting, or breast fat transfer, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance breast volume and contour using the patient's fat cells. In this procedure, fat is harvested from areas of the body with excess fat through liposuction, such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips. The harvested fat is processed and purified before being injected into the breasts to achieve the desired augmentation. Breast fat grafting in Nashville & Franklin, TN at Higdon Plastic Surgery offers a natural alternative to breast implants, providing subtle and long-lasting results while also contouring other areas of the body through liposuction.

The Benefits of Breast Fat Grafting

Breast fat grafting, or breast fat transfer, by Dr. Kye Higdon, offers a natural approach to breast augmentation. Discover the benefits of this procedure:

Natural-Looking Results

Breast fat grafting offers natural-looking results using the patient's fat tissue to enhance breast volume and shape.

Minimally Invasive

Compared to traditional breast augmentation with implants, breast fat grafting involves minimal incisions and scarring, leading to a faster recovery and less postoperative discomfort.

Dual Benefit

The procedure enhances the breasts and contours areas of the body with excess fat through liposuction, providing a more sculpted overall appearance by removing unwanted areas of fat in some locations of your body for the purpose of augmenting the breast.

Long-Lasting Results

Since the fat transferred to the breasts is derived from the patient's body, the results of breast fat grafting are typically long-lasting and can withstand changes in weight over time.

Reduced Risk of Complications

With no foreign objects introduced into the body, breast fat grafting eliminates the low but possible risk for specific complications often associated with traditional breast augmentation using implants, such as capsular contracture and implant rupture.

Is Breast Fat Grafting Right for Me?

Breast fat grafting, or breast fat transfer, is ideal for patients seeking a natural enhancement of their breast volume and shape without implants. If you're experiencing concerns related to breast size, asymmetry, or volume loss, this procedure may benefit you. Patients looking to contour other body areas with excess fat through liposuction can also achieve dual benefits from breast fat grafting. The only way to determine if breast fat grafting in the Nashville & Franklin, TN area at Higdon Plastic Surgery is the right fit for your needs is a thorough consultation. Dr. Higdon will assess your specific concerns and goals to tailor a personalized treatment plan.

What to Expect The Breast Fat Grafting Procedure

During the breast fat grafting procedure, you can expect a meticulous process that begins with liposuction to harvest fat from donor sites like the abdomen, thighs, or hips. Once collected, the harvested fat undergoes a purification process to isolate viable fat cells for transfer. Dr. Higdon then strategically injects the purified fat into the targeted areas of the breasts to achieve the desired volume and contour. The procedure typically takes 1-2 hours, depending on the extent of liposuction and the amount of fat transfer required. Dr. Higdon employs advanced techniques to ensure precision and natural-looking results. The magic of breast fat transfer lies within the principle of autologous fat transfer, where the patient's fat cells are used to augment the breasts, promoting improved symmetry, fullness, and shape that appears natural while simultaneously contouring other areas of the body.

Breast Fat Grafting Recovery

Following breast fat grafting, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the donor and recipient areas, which typically subside within a few weeks. Dr. Higdon may recommend wearing a supportive bra to aid in the healing process and minimize swelling.

While recovery times vary, most patients can resume light activities within a few days and return to regular activities within a couple of weeks. It's essential to follow postoperative care instructions provided by Dr. Higdon, including avoiding strenuous activities and maintaining proper wound care.

Follow-up appointments allow us to monitor progress and ensure optimal healing. Over time, as swelling resolves and the body integrates the transferred fat, you can enjoy natural-looking and long-lasting results, with enhanced breast volume and improved contour.
