Breast Fat Transfer Guide by Dr. Brian Evans for Every Woman

Breasts can be modeled with fatty tissue as well, which is quite abundant in the case of most patients seeking this intervention. Some specialists perform liposuction combined with breast reduction in order to obtain the desired results. This method is successful only in selected cases in which the breast is composed mainly of fatty tissue.

Breast fat transfer is addressed to weaker patients as well, particularly the ones who undergo breast surgery augmentation with silicone implants. With the introduction of fat to these levels, every problem related to the edges of the implant will be solved.

Lately there have been a wide range of international efforts for finding a suitable method of breast augmentation by autologous fat transfer (microlipofiling). The surgeons collected large amounts of fat from other areas and introduced those using small tubes in the bilateral part of the breasts. The operation is very thorough, however, taking for about 6-7 hours. In addition to this, the results were inconsistent for most patients. Usually the procedure must be repeated to obtain satisfactory results. There are many followers of this procedure because it is very expensive and the results are not up to expectations.

Breast fat transfer is normally applicable for patients with excess fatty tissue that can be collected from their body, transferred and eventually grafted to the breast. Breast reduction surgery is also indicated if you are also looking to change the size of your breasts in order to avoid tumor at a later stage. The obvious disadvantage of this intervention is that permanent scars will be left.

As for the contraindications for this method, patients should be aware that they might be exposed to serious blood and skin diseases. Such aspects should be discussed in detail with the surgeon before surgery is performed. Breast fat transfer seems like a dangerous method, but it is usually regarded as a risk-free intervention. The only risks are those that are common to any surgery performed under anesthesia and include excessive bleeding, hematoma, infection and temporary lack of sensitivity in certain operated areas.

The surgery can last from several minutes to 6-7 hours, depending on workload and techniques chosen. In addition to this, reshaping the breast contour is an optional intervention that can take up to 15 minutes. A greater or less risk of resorption of transplanted fat will be experienced by patients, but usually the amount dissolved is about 30-50% of fat will resolve.
