Enhance Breast Size Using Your Fat

Breast fat grafting, or autologous fat transfer, involves transferring fat from one area of your body to your breasts to enhance their size, shape, or symmetry. The procedure begins with liposuction, where excess fat is harvested from the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. This fat is processed to purify it before being injected into the breasts to achieve the desired size.

Unlike traditional breast augmentation with implants, fat grafting offers a more natural alternative as it uses your body’s own tissue. Fat grafting allows for more precise sculpting and contouring of the breasts, providing a customized result that blends seamlessly with your natural anatomy. Breast fat grafting is a safe and effective option for individuals seeking subtle enhancements or reconstruction with minimal scarring.

What Is Recovery from Breast Fat Grafting Like?

Recovery from breast fat grafting typically involves a brief downtime and a gradual return to normal activities. In the initial days following the procedure, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort at both the donor and recipient sites. These side effects are normal and can be managed with prescribed pain medication and a supportive garment. While individual recovery experiences vary, most patients can resume light activities within a few days and return to work within a week or two.

However, strenuous exercises and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks to allow your body to heal properly after your breast fat grafting in Washington, DC. Our plastic surgeons will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, including how to care for the incision sites, manage discomfort, and monitor for any signs of complications. It’s essential to attend follow-up appointments to ensure your recovery progresses smoothly.
