Fat transfer breast enlargement is becoming an increasingly popular option for women who don’t like implants. One of the best things about this technique is that it uses your own body’s fat to add volume to the breasts. This means you can expect a natural look and feel while avoiding some of the complications associated with implants. If you are considering this procedure, it is important to understand what to expect. This post answers a few questions regarding autologous breast augmentation results.
How long does recovery take?
Autologous breast enlargement is a less invasive procedure (compared to implant breast surgery). The initial recovery takes about 1 – 3 days. However, you can still expect to experience significant swelling over the next few weeks. Complete healing/recovery takes anywhere from 4 weeks to 3 months. Your plastic surgeon will provide instructions to ensure a smooth recovery process after this surgery.
How much bigger can you make your breasts with fat grafting?
Natural breast augmentation is designed for women who are looking for a modest increase in breast size and volume. Patients can expect to enhance the volume of their breasts by one cup size. In some cases (depending on the patient’s body), it may be possible to achieve a size increase of up to two cup sizes. If you are looking to achieve a much bigger increment in breast size, then implant-based augmentation is the right option.
How long do results last?
One of the best things about breast augmentation with fat grafting is that it is a permanent procedure. You do not have to worry about implant complication or having implants removed after their shelf life of 10 – 20 years. It is important to note that your breasts will change along with the rest of your body. Thus, fluctuations in weight can have a noticeable impact on your breast volume.
Keep in mind that results vary from one patient to the other. Make a point to discuss your expectations with Dr. Ruston Sanchez during your consultation visit so the surgeon can create a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.
