Benefits Of Fat Transfer Compared To Breast Implants
Since the fat transfer approach for breast augmentation uses natural body tissue, a significant benefit of this procedure is the natural-looking results. Specifically, fat transfer augmentation results look and feel more like natural breasts, which may be preferable for some patients.
Additionally, using fat transfer for breast augmentation may minimize risks associated with implants, such as rupture, scar tissue hardening, and allergic reactions. Another significant benefit for many patients is the very small scars with a fat transfer surgery, as the procedure uses injections for augmentation instead of incisions.
Lastly, breast augmentation with a fat transfer goes beyond simply enlarging your chest. It slims other areas of the body where excess fat is taken for the procedure. Many patients have fat taken from places such as the abdomen, flanks, hips, and thighs.
It is important to note that your newly enhanced breasts are still susceptible to aging despite the augmentation. Additionally, your body may reabsorb a portion of the fat in the months after surgery. This surgical approach is best for subtle breast enhancements, typically by one to two bra cup sizes.
Understanding The Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Procedure
The first step for fat transfer breast augmentation surgery is to remove excess body fat from specific areas using liposuction techniques. Since the surgery is typically an outpatient procedure, general anesthesia and a local anesthetic may be applied to the areas undergoing liposuction.
Dr. Kreitzberg will make small incisions in the target areas and vacuum the excess fat cells from your body. This fat tissue he removes from your body is then purified in a closed system for reinjection.
Next, Dr. Kreitzberg will reinject the body fat into strategic places in your breast tissue for ideal enhancements. This step may require tiny incisions around your breasts. Lastly, any incisions necessary for the transfer and harvesting the tissue are closed using sutures and skin adhesive.

Choosing to undergo breast augmentation could significantly transform your breasts and the contours of your body, especially when combined with liposuction. A fat transfer breast augmentation in Tulsa is an excellent option if you want a slight increase in breast size that looks and feels natural. In addition to various cosmetic and medical benefits, a fat transfer augmentation approach allows for more freedom when it comes to reshaping your breasts. If a larger breast size is desired, then fat transfer can be used in combination with implants to give a more nature appearance and/or enhance specific areas of the breasts. Finally, if correction of breast sagging is necessary, fat transfer can be used in combination with a breast lift to add volume and improve the shape of the breasts.
Though your body may reabsorb 40-50% of the fat during the first three months of recovery, your results are final after that period. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Kreitzberg if you are ready to discuss the many options available to help you achieve your desired results.
