How much does a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Cost?

How long does it take to recover from a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

It is recommended that patients take 2-7 days to recover from a fat transfer boob job. Although it is possible for mild swelling to last for a couple of weeks following the procedure, there is a significant decrease in discomfort following the first 48 hours.

How long does a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation take?

Most breast implants with fat procedures take approximately 90 minutes to perform, depending on the number of fat zones being harvested. By the end of the treatment, patients can expect to achieve a more balanced, shapely, and curvaceous figure.

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?

Confidence Boost

By removing excess fat and revitalizing breast appearance, a fat transfer breast augmentation will boost self-confidence and self-worth.

Improved Contours

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.

Added Volume

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.

How is a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Performed?

All breast augmentation procedures are performed within the comfort of the modern Toronto Plastic Surgeon Surgery suites. The surgery is entirely personalized and specifically designed by our expert team to match your desired results. 

Prior to your surgery, a physician will administer anesthesia to ensure that the procedure is completely painless. During the procedure, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons will harvest unwanted fat from regions such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs. Then, the surgeons will prepare the fat, put it into injection syringes and then transfer the fat cells to the breasts for a natural-looking breast augmentation effect.

How to Prepare for a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

To ensure a successful surgery, the doctor will advise that you follow certain preparations in the weeks leading up to your procedure date:

  • Smoking and alcohol consumption should be discontinued two weeks leading up to the procedure. Those who continue to smoke will have a longer recovery period and a greater likelihood of complications.
  • Two weeks before your procedure, patients must cease taking Aspirin or any medication that contains Aspirin.
  • Eight hours prior to surgery, patients must stop consuming any food or drink. Small sips of water are permitted, however.

What to Expect After a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Following your fat transfer breast augmentation, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons will give you detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a seamless recovery. Please keep in mind you will be required to wear a compression garment for several weeks, to reduce swelling and tighten skin. After the procedure, patients can expect better body contour, as well as a dramatic improvement in breast shape. Patients can expect to achieve a ½ to ¾ cup size improvement.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Recovery

Day 3: Initial discomfort should be completely diminished.

Week 1: Significant decrease in swelling and bruising.

Week 2: Compression garments can be removed.

Week 6: Patients can return to strenuous activities.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation FAQ

How painful is it to get a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Due to the anesthesia administered during the procedure, the patient will not feel any pain during the surgery. While it is normal to experience some swelling and discomfort after the surgery, there will be no extreme or long-term pain. In fact, this irritation can be easily controlled with oral medication prescribed by the Toronto Plastic Surgeons.

How long will the results last?

The results of fat transfer breast augmentation are designed to last the rest of your life, as long as you maintain your post-procedure weight. What you see, in terms of breast volume increase three months after the fat transfer, is your final result.

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.
