Fat grafting breast augmentation involves harvesting fat in excess fat areas to reinject it in the breasts. This technique offerts perfectly natural and durable results. On top of that, since fat is harvested from excess fat areas, patients can choose to thin down specific areas where unwanted fat has accumulated, which contributes to a more harmonious figure.
Results from fat grafting breast augmentation are definitive after the 3 months post-op mark. Additional fat grafting procedures are not necessary to maintain the result. Breast volume still does follow body weight, which means fluctuations have an impact on breast volume.
Precautions before surgery
The operation is performed under general anesthesia. A consultation with the anesthesiologist is mandatory before the procedure, as well as blood tests.
Patients requesting surgery need to meet the following requirements as well : no aspirin, anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant medication during at least 10 to 15 days before surgery, no smoking during 1 to 2 months before the operation in order to avoid wound healing issues and no oral contraceptive pills during a month before surgery.
Fat grafting breast augmentation results
The incisions made to access the breasts are very short and almost invisible once healing is complete. The definitive result can be seen after a period of 3 to 6 months post-op. It is durable as long as the patient does not go through significant weight loss or gain. Fat grafting breast augmentation results are also perfectly natural, in terms of appearance and feel. It yields a high satisfaction rate since patients also benefit from minor fat reductions in chosen areas of their body.
If imperfections appear after the recovery (asymmetry, missing volume…), an additional procedure can easily treat the issue.
