Fat transfer to the breasts is more than just a surgical procedure; it’s a way to transform your aesthetic. This natural breast surgery has gained traction due its numerous benefits. It provides a way to help women enhance their breasts while also removing stubborn excess fat. Dr. Todd Rau focuses beyond the technique, taking every woman’s unique physical qualities and desired outcome into serious consideration.

Fat transfer, also known as autologous fat grafting, involves the removal of fat from one part of the body (typically the abdomen or thighs) through liposuction. The harvested fat is then processed and injected into the breasts to augment breast tissue. This technique utilizes a woman’s own fat cells, reducing the risk of rejection or complications associated with foreign materials.

Augmenting Breast Volume

One of the primary goals of breast augmentation is increasing breast volume. Fat transfer to the breasts can enhance breast size by up to one full cup size. This provides a subtler increase rather than a more dramatic one, creating very natural-looking results. Since no breast implants are involved, there is never any need for implant replacement.

Navigating the Aging Process

With age, the breast tissue may undergo changes that result in decreased volume. Fat transfer utilizes the patient’s own fat cells to address these age-related changes.

The transferred fat helps fill out the breast, providing additional volume and improving contours. The transferred fat integrates with the existing breast tissue, creating smooth and natural contours. The harvested fat cells contain adipose-derived stem cells, which may also contribute to tissue rejuvenation and enhance the quality of the overlying skin.

Balancing the Demands of Motherhood

After pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women experience changes in breast volume. Dr. Rau uses fat transfer to the breasts to address loss of breast volume due to breastfeeding. Pregnancy can also result in the development of stubborn excess fat, making fat transfer a particularly desirable option.

Achieving Improved Breast Symmetry

In cases where women’s breasts are two different sizes, Dr. Rau can perform a fat transfer. This procedure offers a solution to asymmetry through injection of harvested fat cells. These fat cells are used to increase the volume of the smaller breast in key areas, achieving symmetry and balance with the larger breast.
