Surgery Process Guide to Breast Fat Transfer
“Fat grafting to the breast is not a simple procedure and should be performed by well-trained and skilled surgeons.” Department of Plastic, NMR Laboratory, Nippon Medican School, Tokyo, Japan
This technique uses a procedure similar to liposuction and takes excess fat from an area of the body, such as the inner thighs, and injects this into areas of the breast that lack volume.
You will be given a local anaesthetic to numb the area of your body from which the fat deposits will be removed.
The removed fat is then filtered and unhealthy deposits are discarded.
The safe fat cells are then injected into the breasts to augment its appearance. Your surgeon will give you local anaesthetic before injecting.
Overfilling – this is when too much fat is injected into the breasts. Over time, the fat grafted can grow, resulting in distortion of the breasts.
Blood clotting can occur – however this is rare.
Excessive bruising and swelling as a result of the surgery.
Local anaesthetic is generally safe, but does come with some serious associated risks, including;
Ischemic necrosis (a restriction to the blood cells, causing a group of cells to die).
