Is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation for You?

A breast augmentation with fat transfer is a surgical procedure that reshapes your breasts into the shape and size you desire by using your body’s own fat. In recent years, breast augmentations with fat transfer have increased in popularity due to advances in surgical technology, providing women with a more natural alternative to traditional implants. Dr. David Lo of Premier Plastic Surgery in Knoxville can guide you on the procedure.

It is a natural solution for restoring your breasts’ shape and volume that might have been lost to breastfeeding, weight loss, surgery and aging. The fat harvested and injected into your breasts can be from the outer thighs, hips, and stomach, among other sections with undesirable fat deposits.

The fat will change your breast size and improve its volume. In addition, it has the added benefit of reducing the size of other parts of your body, like your tummy, love handles, thighs, or buttocks using liposuction.

What makes you a good candidate for Breast Augmentation through Fat Transfer?

1) You have enough fat to give

One of the main requirements for fat transfers to the breasts is that you have to have enough fat volume that we can easily harvest from your body and transfer to your breasts.


2) You have enough breast tissue

In general, the best patient for fat transfer to the breast is a woman who has a fair amount of breast tissue to start with in order for the transferred fat to have a home.


3) You are looking for subtle breast augmentation 

There’s only so much enhancement you can get through a fat transfer procedure. The maximum volume increase that can be achieved is no more than one cup size. 


4) You are in overall good health

Candidates for this procedure are at or near their healthy weight, are not pregnant or breastfeeding and have no serious illness or disease. 


For a better understanding of whether this procedure would be appropriate for you, you can to SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION with Dr. Lo and let him assess your situation thoroughly.
