Good Candidates for Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer
Good candidates for this breast augmentation technique need to have enough excess fat to be used for the procedure. Women who have naturally small breasts or have lost some volume due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss may enjoy any of the following benefits:
Peace of mind from choosing a natural, minimally invasive alternative to breast implants
A modest increase in breast size (about 1 cup size)
Enhanced cleavage and fullness of the upper breasts
Freedom from the need to eventually replace their breast implants
Slimming of trouble spots where fat builds up
During your personal consultation, Dr. Johnson will ask you about the improvements you’d like to attain and perform a physical exam to see if fat transfer is an appropriate option for you. It’s important to have realistic expectations about your results because they won’t be as dramatic as with implants.
Dr. Kevin Johnson
Welcome to Advanced Aesthetics. Throughout my years serving the body contouring and facial rejuvenation needs of people in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, I’ve learned a lot—including how to meet my patients where they are.
If you’re like most of our guests, you’re busy, you want to address a specific concern, but you might not know where to begin. We’re ready to help.
Dr. Johnson performs fat transfer breast augmentation as an outpatient procedure using local anesthetic with oral sedation to avoid the risks and side-effects of general anesthesia. This breast augmentation technique does not involve breast implants. Instead, Dr. Johnson collects excess fat from areas such as the belly, hips, or thighs using liposuction. He uses a gentle technique to avoid damaging the fat cells as he suctions them out of the body.
After he has collected enough fat, Dr. Johnson purifies it to ensure he transfers only pure living fat into your breasts. This process optimizes the percentage of fat cells that develop new blood supplies and survive in their new locations. Once the fat is prepared, Dr. Johnson carefully places it where it’s needed through tiny incisions. He takes care to ensure the results are beautiful, smooth, and natural-looking.
Recovery & Results
Recovery after breast augmentation with fat transfer is usually quicker and less demanding than when implants are used. Individual experiences vary and primarily depend on the areas treated with liposuction. Typically, the treated areas are mildly bruised and swollen for 2 to 3 weeks.
It’s important to follow all recovery directions provided by Dr. Johnson, including avoiding pressure on your breasts as you heal. While your breasts will be fuller and have more shape right away, expect them to get a little smaller as swelling diminishes and some of the fat is absorbed. You can be expected to reach your final results after about 6 months and may enjoy your beautiful shape for many years. Future pregnancies and weight changes will likely impact your improvements.
