How is a Breast Fat Transfer procedure performed?
Fat is collected from one part of your body, washed and purified, and then carefully re-injected into areas that need to be increased with specially designed needles. It may be necessary to repeat the fat grafting procedure several times in order to achieve the desired result. The fat graft can be explained as a three-stage process: (1) harvesting, (2) purification and transfer, and (3) placement.
Harvesting: You and your surgeon will select a site for fat removal and inject a local anesthetic. Your surgeon will then make a small incision in the area for fat removal and, using a sterile technique, insert a cannula attached to a syringe to extract the fat carefully (liposuction).
Purification and transfer: Once enough fat is obtained from the donor area, your surgeon will process it to prepare the fat cells for transfer to small syringes for injection of fat. Purification may require the use of a centrifuge for spinning the fat or a filtration process to remove impurities prior to injection.
Placement: The area designated to receive the graft will be prepared. Your surgeon will insert a needle or cannula into the incision point at which the site is increased. The injection needle is usually passed in and out of areas that need to be increased multiple times. Each time the needle or cannula is removed, a line of fatty tissue patches is carefully deposited in the natural tissue layers. This process is repeated until the desired correction has been achieved, creating a grid of greased fat. Some surgeons recommend massaging the grafted areas in order to create a satisfactory contour. Others prefer to use the placement technique to create the appropriate contour. The surgeon may also place a dressing or bandage on the grafted area.
Breast Fat Transfer risk includes:
Fat cell necrosis (death).
It is possible that some of the fat cells transferred will leave the breast area.
What are my options?
Your own fat may be used to alter your body’s contour, revise scars, fill liposuction or cancer depressions, and rejuvenate your hands and face. Common sites for fat extraction include the abdomen and the flanks (love handles), the posterior arms, and hips and thighs. The options that your plastic surgeon will discuss with you are:
Which areas are going to benefit from the fat transfer?
Which areas are best suited for fat removal?
Are there any other procedures appropriate?
