Breast Fat Transfer

At Gartner Plastic Surgery in New Jersey we specialize in breast fat transfer, a revolutionary procedure that offers a natural and long-lasting solution for enhancing your breasts. If you desire fuller, more voluptuous breasts without the use of implants, breast fat transfer may be the perfect option for you.

Breast fat transfer NJ, also known as autologous fat grafting, is a cosmetic procedure that involves using your body’s own fat to enhance the size and shape of your breasts. This innovative technique not only provides the desired volume but also allows for contouring and reshaping in areas where fat is harvested.

The procedure begins with liposuction, where excess fat is carefully extracted from donor sites such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips. The harvested fat is then meticulously processed and purified to obtain high-quality fat cells. Finally, these purified fat cells are strategically injected into the breasts to create a fuller, more natural-looking appearance.

How Does a Breast Fat Transfer Work?

Breast fat transfer NJ, also known as autologous fat grafting, is a surgical procedure that involves transferring fat from one part of the body to the breasts to enhance their size and shape. Here’s an overview of how the procedure works:


Harvesting the Fat:

The first step in a breast fat transfer procedure is the removal of fat from a donor site on your body. Common donor sites include the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. The fat is extracted using liposuction techniques, which involve making small incisions and using a thin tube called a cannula to suction out the fat cells.

Purification of the Fat:

Once the fat is harvested, it goes through a purification process. The fat cells are carefully processed to separate them from any excess fluids, blood, or damaged cells. This purification step ensures that only healthy and viable fat cells are used for the transfer.

Fat Injection into the Breasts:

After purification, the harvested fat is prepared for injection into the breasts. Small, strategically placed incisions are made in the breasts, and the purified fat is carefully injected using specialized techniques. The fat cells are distributed evenly to achieve the desired volume and shape.

Post-Procedure Recovery:

Following the fat transfer, you will be provided with post-operative instructions to ensure proper healing. Swelling, bruising, and temporary discomfort in the donor and recipient areas are common after the procedure. It is essential to follow your surgeon’s guidelines for post-operative care, including wearing compression garments and avoiding strenuous activities.

Long-Term Results:

Over time, some of the transferred fat cells may be naturally reabsorbed by the body. However, a portion of the fat cells typically establish a blood supply and survive, resulting in long-term volume enhancement in the breasts. Dr. Gartner will guide you on maintaining the results and provide recommendations for a healthy lifestyle to optimize the longevity of the fat transfer outcome.

Benefits of Breast Fat Transfer

  • Natural and Autologous: Breast fat transfer utilizes your body’s own fat cells, eliminating the need for synthetic implants. This results in a more natural look and feel, as the transferred fat integrates seamlessly into your existing breast tissue.
  • Dual Benefits: With breast fat transfer NJ, you not only achieve enhanced breast volume but also experience body contouring in the donor areas. This means you can enjoy slimmer, more sculpted contours in addition to fuller breasts.
  • No Implant-Related Concerns: Breast implants may raise concerns about potential complications, such as implant rupture, capsular contracture, or implant-related infections. With breast fat transfer, these concerns are significantly minimized since the procedure uses your body’s own tissue.
  • Minimally Invasive: Breast fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure compared to traditional breast augmentation with implants. It involves smaller incisions, resulting in less scarring and a quicker recovery time.
  • Long-lasting Results: While some fat is naturally reabsorbed by the body after the procedure, the remaining fat cells establish a permanent blood supply and tend to retain their volume over time. This offers long-lasting results that can be enjoyed for years to come.

Things To Consider

  • Sufficient Fat Reserves: To be a suitable candidate for breast fat transfer, you should have an adequate amount of donor fat available. Dr. Gartner will evaluate your body composition during the consultation to determine if you have enough fat for the procedure.
  • Realistic Expectations: It is important to have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure. While breast fat transfer can provide significant volume enhancement, the final results may vary depending on individual factors such as existing breast tissue and skin elasticity.
  • Stability of Results: The longevity of the results depends on multiple factors, including the survival of transferred fat cells. It is essential to maintain a stable weight and follow postoperative instructions provided by Dr. Gartner to optimize the survival of the transferred fat cells.
  • Combination Procedures: Breast fat transfer can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to further enhance your overall results. This can include breast lift or augmentation with implants, depending on your specific goals and needs.

When it comes to breast fat transfer, trust the expertise of a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Gartner. With decades of experience and a commitment to excellence, Dr. Gartner combines artistic skill, advanced techniques, and a personalized approach to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

  • Saline Implants: Saline implants consist of a silicone shell that is filled with a sterile saline solution (saltwater) during the surgery. One of the advantages of saline implants is that they can be filled after insertion, which allows for smaller incisions. In the event of a rupture, saline is safely absorbed by the body, providing visible indications.

  • Silicone Implants: Silicone implants are made of a silicone shell filled with a cohesive silicone gel. These implants offer a more natural feel and appearance, closely resembling the texture of natural breast tissue. They are available in various shapes, including round and teardrop (anatomical), to accommodate different aesthetic goals.

  • Gummy Bear Implants: Gummy bear implants, also known as cohesive gel implants, are a popular choice for breast augmentation. Made of a stable silicone gel, these implants provide a natural-looking result, maintain their shape, and offer a reduced risk of rippling or wrinkling. With customizable options available, gummy bear implants can help you achieve your desired aesthetic outcome with enhanced confidence.

During your consultation with Dr. Gartner, you will have the opportunity to discuss the advantages and considerations of each implant type and determine which option best aligns with your goals and lifestyle.
