Breast augmentation with fat transfer is a minimally invasive surgery to increase breast size by injecting your own fat cells collected through liposuction. The benefits of breast enlargement with fat transfer are incredible: There are no implants placed in your body, there are no lifting restrictions after surgery and you can have liposuction body contouring for your hips, thighs or stomach. All this, and the results really last.

The Fat Transfer Process
Another added benefit of fat transfer breast augmentation is that the surgeon does not need to make large incisions into the breast. Instead, after collecting your body’s available fat cells and removing all unwanted matter (blood, oil, water) via centrifugation, Dr. Wooten carefully injects the purified fat cells into the breast site in tiny doses. A portion of the fat injected is reabsorbed into the bloodstream; however, most transferred fat is retained by the body and begins to grow naturally to augment the breast area where it has been injected. This process of fat collection and redistribution within the same patient is technically known as an “autologous graft.”

Benefits of Breast Enhancement with Fat Transfer
Women who want larger breasts with a more natural look and feel can now achieve this with Dr. Anna Wooten, one of the most experienced fat grafting surgeons in the Pittsburgh area.
Here are the many benefits Pittsburgh patients can expect with fat transfer breast augmentation:
Throughout the entire process your body remains free of foreign objects. No implants means less risk of future complications, and it means that you won’t need to have those implants replaced further along down the road.
Fat cells are delivered to the breast by way of many tiny, minimally invasive injections. Because incisions are minimal, scarring is also minimal. No need to physically adjust to the presence of an implant makes recovery time dramatically shorter. Enlarge your breasts with the added benefit of losing excess body fat.
Breast Enlargement with Fat Transfer FAQs
What is the recovery time following breast enhancement via fat transfer?
There is a very quick recovery following a fat transfer. There are no lifting restrictions, and you will be able to resume normal activity within four or five days, however, your final result will not be visible for up to six months.
How long will the new breast volume last?
Fat transfer is an effective method to obtain long-lasting but moderate breast enlargement without the use of implants. Fat that survives the grafting process becomes living fat tissue that will be a permanent addition to the volume of your breasts. However, the amount of transferred fat that ultimately survives varies from patient to patient. So it may take more than one procedure to achieve the results you’re looking for. Dr. Wooten will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for breast enlargement with fat transfer. She’ll also inform you as to how many procedures you may need based on current conditions and desired breast size.
Am I too skinny for fat grafting?
Very rarely are patients disqualified from having a natural breast augmentation via fat transfer on account of being too skinny or thin. Even if the patient does not have visible regions of loose fat, Dr. Wooten is able to collect small deposits of fat over large surface areas.
How much volume can be achieved with this method?
When it comes to increasing breast size with fat grafting, Dr. Wooten advises her patients to expect no more than a cup size in increased breast volume. For patients wanting a more dramatic change in size, shape, fullness, or projection, we recommend a traditional breast augmentation with an implant or a breast lift combined with an implant.
