What is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
In essence, a fat transfer breast augmentation involves enhancing the shape, volume, and position of the breasts by transplanting unwanted fat from other areas of the body to the breasts. In addition to significantly improving a patient’s body contour, the procedure is able to revitalize breast shape and volume.
Who is a Candidate for a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
While there are no specific traits that dictate candidacy, good physical health and realistic expectations can make the recovery process more seamless. Fundamentally, a candidate for a fat transfer breast augmentation is someone who would like to increase the volume and proportion of their breasts while removing unwanted fat collections. Traditional breast implants will provide more predictable volume and size than fat grafting, but fat transfer to the breast is more natural, modest and does not involve a foreign device.
Please note that if a patient is pregnant or excessively overweight, they may not be a good candidate for a fat transfer breast augmentation with the Toronto Plastic Surgeons. Also, this procedure is not recommended for patients with illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, or hypertension.
We invite all those interested in this procedure to reach out to The Toronto Plastic Surgeons for a consultation.
What are the Benefits of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
By removing excess fat and revitalizing breast appearance, a fat transfer breast augmentation will boost self-confidence and self-worth.
By targeting localized fat pockets in the body that detract from contour, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons can significantly improve a patient’s overall body shape, as well as increase breast volume and projection.
A Healthier Lifestyle
As it is not recommended that patients gain more than 5-10 pounds after their fat transfer breast augmentation, the procedure serves as a strong motivating factor to ensure that they adopt a healthier lifestyle.
A fat transfer breast augmentation can add volume and curve to breasts that are naturally small and flat.
What are the Risks of a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
Like every surgery, a fat transfer breast augmentation comes with a small chance of potential complications. The best thing patients can do to minimize the likelihood of complications is to select a trusted surgeon. The team at Toronto Plastic Surgeons has years of experience performing this procedure. Significant complications are uncommon and, in the rare event they occur, are expertly managed.
- Infections: Even though infections are rare, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons still take every precaution to ensure that the procedure is a smooth, seamless experience.
- Adverse Anesthesia Effects: In some cases, the anesthesia used in the surgery can have an adverse effect on the patient. For this reason, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons carefully review the medical history of every single patient that walks through their doors.
- Nerve Damage: It is possible that a fat transfer breast augmentation results in numbness or a change in skin sensation.
- Contour Irregularities: In cases where patients do not obtain the results they were looking for, a follow-up procedure can be scheduled to ensure adequate body contour.
- Poor Fat Cell Graft Survival: Typically, 50-70% of the transferred fat cells survive. However, there is a risk that almost no fat cells survive the transplant and the breast volume increase is less impressive.

If I have Breast Implants, Can I Have a Fat Transfer?
Absolutely. By adding a fat transfer to breast implants, patients can further enhance the size and appearance of their breasts. Fat grafting, or “over grafting” as it is called, can also hide implant edges and ripples, as well as improve some asymmetries. The result of the procedure is larger breasts that are also higher and firmer.
