By using fat transfer techniques, patients can enhance the breasts to achieve results that look and feel completely natural. At Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we offer this and other breast surgery treatments to residents of Sugar Land, Kerrville, Houston, and the nearby areas of Texas.
What is a Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer?
A breast augmentation with a fat transfer uses fat grafting techniques instead of an implant. The procedure involves harvesting fat from another area of your body through liposuction, and then injecting it into the breasts to enhance their size and shape. For fat transfer procedures, we use Tickle Lipo, a minimally invasive liposuction treatment that is comfortable, safe, and requires very little downtime. Plus, Tickle Lipo preserves the health of harvested fat cells better than any other liposuction technique.
How Much Does a Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer Cost?
The cost of a breast augmentation with fat transfer can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
How is a Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer Performed?
The first step of a breast augmentation with fat transfer is collecting unwanted fat from the body. Using Tickle Lipo, we can harvest fat from the stomach, legs, buttocks, and more. In addition to collecting fat for the breast augmentation, this also helps patients contour other areas of the body to further enhance their figure. Once the fat is collected, it is purified to prepare it for injection. Then, the fat is injected into the breasts to create the desired results.
What is the Recovery Period Like After a Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer?
After a breast augmentation with fat transfer, the recovery is much shorter and more comfortable than traditional breast surgeries. Thanks to Tickle Lipo and the non-surgical fat injection process, patients are usually able to return to normal activities within a week of their procedure. Still, it is common to experience mild bruising and swelling following your treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from My Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer?
Once fat is injected into the breasts, the body must adapt and provide blood supply to the transplanted fat cells. If this does not happen, the injected fat cells will die and they will be flushed from the body. With most fat transfer procedures, not all of the fat survives the transfer. This is expected, and we typically inject extra fat to compensate for this loss. As a result, you may notice that your breast size is a little larger than expected immediately following your treatment. Over the following weeks, the fat will settle and you will achieve your desired results.
The breast augmentation with fat transfer procedure can simultaneously enhance the breasts while contouring another area of the body. To schedule your consultation for this procedure, contact us today. Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery welcomes patients from Houston, San Antonio and Sugar Land, TX.
