Increase Your Breast Size Without Implants

Many women want fuller breasts, but some are hesitant to consider implants. For a while, breast augmentation with implants was the only notable way to increase breast size. Fortunately, that is no longer the case.

Dr. Ali Sadeghi is a pioneer of fat grafting to breasts, a newer technique used in breast augmentation, breast revision, and breast reconstruction.

What Is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Fat transfer breast augmentation is a combination breast and body contouring procedure that uses fat taken from your body to slightly increase your breast size. The result is a natural-looking and feeling bustline combined with a slimmer and more defined silhouette.

Fat transfer to the breasts, also known as natural breast augmentation, is more commonly used in breast revision and breast reconstruction, but it can be used during primary augmentation with or without an implant to increase breast fullness or improve symmetry.

Why Choose Fat Transfer to the Breasts?

Great Adjunct to Other Breast Surgeries

Fat transfer to the breast allows women to increase their bust size slightly (usually equivalent to one cup size). While many women considering breast augmentation desire more than this (thus requiring an implant), this increase is great for women undergoing other breast surgeries, such as breast lift, breast revision, or breast reconstruction.

This two-for-one procedure provides natural-looking fullness that further enhances the results of your breast surgery.

All-Natural Augmenting Material

Instead of saline or silicone implants, natural breast augmentation uses fat that has been harvested from your body through liposuction. Because this fat is yours, there is no chance of infection, allergic reaction, or rejection.

No Implant-Related Complications

Implants are great for providing a significant increase in breast size and shape; however, they are not permanent and at risk for complications, such as implant rupture, capsular contracture, or implant displacement. Since fat transfer breast augmentation does not involve implants, these complications are not possible.

Is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Right for Me?

Fat injections to the breasts can provide the following results:

  • Fuller-looking breasts
  • Natural-feeling breasts
  • Better cleavage
  • More symmetrical breasts
  • Slimmer body contours
  • Contour correction in breasts affected by lumpectomy and radiation

Contact Dr. Sadeghi to see if you are a candidate for fat transfer to the breasts. Because this is a fat transfer procedure, you will need to have adequate fat stores elsewhere in your body to harvest.

How Is Fat Transfer to the Breasts Performed?

Fat grafting to the breasts is a simple, outpatient breast enhancement procedure.

Fat transfer to the breasts is performed in three stages:

Stage 1 – Fat removal: Gentle liposuction techniques are used to harvest fat from the body. Usually, this fat is removed from donor areas such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs. Fat is often taken from several locations to gather enough to transfer.

Stage 2 – Fat purification: The removed fat is purified so that only the healthiest, strongest cells remain.

Stage 3 – Fat injection: The cleansed fat is injected into various areas of the breasts to enhance fullness and improve symmetry.

Fat Transfer and Breast Reconstruction

Fat transfer is commonly used to increase breast volume after breast reconstruction surgery. Many women choose this technique to add fullness and help provide coverage of an implant or tissue flap.

Not all breast reconstruction patients are good candidates for this procedure.

Fat Transfer and Breast Revision

Some women who undergo breast revision decide not to replace their implants. Fat transfer breast augmentation is great for these women as it allows them to restore some fullness after their implants are gone.

Fat transfer and breast revision are commonly performed alongside breast lift surgery to raise sagging breasts.

Outstanding care. Beautiful results.

How Much Does Natural Breast Augmentation Cost in New Orleans?

The cost of your fat transfer breast augmentation will vary depending on the number of liposuction sites and any combination procedures performed. Dr. Sadeghi will be able to provide you with a more accurate cost estimate after your in-person consultation.

What Should I Expect After My Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

How Long Is Recovery After Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Recovery from this procedure usually takes one to two days. You can expect your liposuction sites to be sore and swollen; however, they should not be overly painful.

Because some of the injected fat will be absorbed by the body, Dr. Sadeghi will inject more than you desire. This may result in a temporary “overfilled” look in the breasts but it often resolves itself within a few weeks.

Will There Be Scars After Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Since natural breast augmentation injects fat, there will be no scars on the breasts. There may be some minor scarring at the liposuction sites; however, Dr. Sadeghi does his best to place these incisions in discreet locations, such as natural folds.

All scars will fade with time.
