I want my breasts to be rounder
Ginger, 36 years old, Saleswoman, San Diego
I’m overall satisfied with my small breasts, but when I saw the results of fat transfer, I wanted to know more. I scheduled my surgery hoping to gain a cup size and roundness for my breasts.
FAT TRANSFER TO THE BREASTS
The procedure uses the patient’s own fat to increase breast volume. This method allows for a slight to moderate increase of breast size, but results in an absolutely natural appearance of the breasts.
WHO IS IT FOR
Some patients with small sized breasts want more roundness and volume whereas others want to restore breast volume they have lost after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Fat transfer candidates must have enough fat in their body to allow a noticeable increase of breast volume, therefore skinny patients cannot access this procedure.
Fat deposits to be transferred to the breasts are chosen by the patient. Very short incision are used to perform liposuction on these deposits. The collected fat is then purified in order to dismiss other fluids.The surgeon injects the purified fat at different depths and locations in the breast in order to increase the survival rate of the transplanted fat and insure a noticeable volume increase.
The procedure requires a 24 hours stay at the clinic.
General anesthesia is usually administered for a fat transfer to the breasts.
Read the information sheet about fat transfer to the breasts.
Pain is usually mild after the surgery and mainly comes from the areas treated by liposuction.
LENGTH OF STAY
A week in Tunisia is usually enough for the surgeon to monitor the results during the recovery.
After a 24 hours stay at the clinic, patients are allowed to go back to their hotel where postoperative care is provided. A control visit is usually scheduled for the day before your departure.
