You want larger breasts but don’t want implants. Fat transfer breast augmentation is your alternative to enhance the size and shape of your breasts using your own fat. Get liposuction to slim down an area on your body that needs it, like your stomach or thighs, and use the removed fat to enlarge your breasts by up to one cup size. The shape of your breasts will be rounder and firmer, but still look totally natural. You can even get better cleavage!
The best part of breast augmentation with fat transfer, aside from getting a slimmer body and larger breasts, is that no implants are needed. It’s all natural you!
Head board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Atul Kesarwani, is a pioneer in fat graft breast augmentation. He’s been performing the procedure since the 1990s, decades before the hundreds of other surgeons across North America starting doing it. In fact, he was part of a published study that documented results obtained through fat transfer to the breasts and was cited in the preliminary white (industry) paper.
Fat transfer should never cause breast cancer. However, Dr. Kesarwani began offering fat transfer breast augmentation only after studies showed that radiologists could confirm they could tell the difference between changes that occur from fat injection versus tumours during breast cancer examinations. Once that was formerly proven, Dr. Kesarwani refined the procedure in order to achieve reliably successful results for every one of his patients.
After your consultation with Dr. Kesarwani to confirm that breast augmentation with fat transfer is right for you, you’ll be able to receive a 3D image simulating your predicted results. Our patients have found this to be quite helpful in understanding how they may look after their surgery.
For better results in younger patients with tighter breasts, you may be asked to wear a Noogoleberry external breast tissue expander device 6 hours a day for a month before your surgery (and 24 hours the day right before surgery). Noogoleberry is a mechanical suction device that’s worn on your chest to increase blood flow and stretch out your breasts. By doing this, the area where the fat is transferred to stretches out as well, so more fat can be put it. Increased blood flow also improve the survival of the fat.
The first part of the procedure is liposuction. Fat is meticulously suctioned from specific areas using gentle liposuction techniques to protect the fat cells. Fat removal is performed using an appropriately sized cannula for the patient and techniques are applied to ensure symmetric and even results. By doing this, you won’t be at risk of developing uneven lumps and bumps in the target area.
The removed fat is then purified, isolating the fat cells. This is done very gently to avoid damaging the fat cells, improving their longevity. Dr. Kesarwani strives to obtain a much higher fat concentration than other surgeons so that what is transferred is less diluted by anything that’s not actual fat.
The final step is transferring the purified fat to the breasts. Measurements are carefully taken and outlined on the breasts so that your final results are as symmetric and balanced as possible. Most of the fat is injected into the fatty layer (above the pectoralis muscle and under the skin). It must be injected in areas surrounded by healthy tissue. Care is taken to limit the amount injected to and minimize the risk of calcification.
In the study, The Safety, Effectiveness, and Efficiency of Autologous Fat Grafting in Breast Surgery, 598 articles on fat transfer breast augmentation were identified. Of these articles, it was found that patients reported high satisfaction rates — like our patients report!
Fat transfer takes your own fat and puts it back into your body. This means that you won’t have an allergic reaction to it and won’t have to deal with a foreign object in your body (as you would with silicone or saline breast implants). However, there are some possible side effects related to the surgical procedure. These include bruising, swelling and numbness. Some of the transferred fat may also get harmlessly reabsorbed by your body.
Yes! Fat transfer breast augmentation is a prosthetic-free procedure that uses your own fat to augment your breast size and shape. It’s been called natural breast augmentation.
The effects of fat transfer to the breasts last for a long time. Aging, weight fluctuations and pregnancy can impact the effects, however.
This depends on how much fat you want to transfer. It can take an hour or more and may require staged treatments to achieve your desired results.
Yes, when performed by a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Kesarwani, this procedure is safe.
Yes, the transferred fat can be liposuctioned.
The average cost ranges from $10000 – $14000, in Canada.
